World Poker Tour Hosts Ladies Night IV at Bicycle

California Casino Goes All In for the Cure with Poker Charity Event


The World Poker Tour is hosting its fourth annual WPT Ladies Night tournament, pitting some of the most fascinating figures in poker against each other as they vie for a $25,000 entry fee into the WPT World Championship.

The ladies invited to play this season are among the top-ranked women from WPT Season IV: Anahit Galajian, Joanne "JJ" Lieu, Vanessa Rousso, Erica Schoenberg, and Jennifer Tilly, as well as Kelli Griggs of Folsom, California, winner of The Bicycle Casino's ladies event.

After beating out 419 other women in the ladies event last weekend, Kelli kicked in an extra $2,500 donation to the Susan G. Komen fund. A topic all-too-familiar to Kelli, she is a four-year survivor of Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. She also lost her grandmother to breast cancer and has an aunt currently battling the disease.

WPT and the Bicycle Casino are joining forces to support the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. Go All-In for the Cure and help raise funds and awareness for this important cause. The tournament will take place on Thursday, August 31st.

The winner will recieve a $25,500 seat in the WPT World Championship to be held in April of 2007 at Bellagio in Las Vegas.

WPT Ladies Night IV will air on Saturday, October 28 at 8 p.m. (EST/PST) on the Travel Channel.
