New players across the country can now sign up for the second women’s training camp. The ground-breaking event, organized by PokerStars in partnership with Poker Power, aims to make gaming a more inclusive environment. Between July 31 and September 28, poker enthusiasts will have the opportunity to develop different skills across eight modules, from negotiation to strategic decision-making to capital allocation, which are also useful outside of the poker table.
The practical part will be as interesting as the theoretical part. In addition to their home games on PokerStars, they will also have the opportunity to attend a free trip for the finalists to the EPT Cyprus event. The PokerStars x Poker Power Women’s Camp Heads-Up Tournament is a special package for December’s EPT Prague stop.
Women’s participation in poker is increasing every year, but according to a survey conducted by PokerStars in the UK, more than half of women (55%) do not consider poker to be an inclusive game.
“By working with our community, our ambassadors, and exceptional women and key groups in poker, we believe we can make a difference through the many initiatives we plan. We hope to encourage more women to get involved and learn new skills that will benefit them in other areas of their lives. We want to create an educational and growth space that is accessible, safe, and fun, where new women can feel vulnerable and open. We are now proudly entering our second year of Poker Power.” All the feedback and learnings on it have improved it. We know there is high demand, and we can’t wait to meet our new participants and watch them learn and grow together! said Rebecca McAdam Willetts, Director of Partnerships, PR and Consumer Engagement at PokerStars.
Registration for the camp ends July 22. Competing Brazilian players will meet a very familiar face, Team Pro Lauriê Tournier, a grinder and streamer with multiple titles in online MTTs, including two WCOOP titles. In addition to Lauriê, Georgina James and Jennifer Shahade will also be present at the event.
Additional tools such as PokerStars Learn are available 24/7 for participants to improve their skills at their own pace. This enables them to learn hand rankings and become familiar with online poker – for those who have never played the game or wish to refresh.
