Card Player and LIPS Partner for Women's Poker

More Than 40 Casinos Are Participating

The time has come to give the woman poker player one single place to find everything poker, including information regarding the whereabouts of ladies only tournaments. That place is right here at

I am excited to announce that Card Player and LIPS have partnered to bring our readers information specifically geared toward woman poker players. Together we have created a portal for women's poker with a variety of new and exciting programs.

You will notice a new section on the home page entitled LIPSTOUR. With just one click, you will be directed to our women's section, which will include women's tournaments, profiles, schedules, articles, and more.
Joining in our efforts to provide dynamic poker content will be Annie Duke, Linda Johnson, Jan Fisher, J.J Liu, Cecelia Reyes, Lisa Wheeler, Lizzy Harrison, Pam Brunson, and many other respected women in the poker industry. This dynamic group will write articles for women, about women, and from a woman's perspective. I am personally hoping Pam Brunson will be persuaded to write an article about her experience cashing at the main event of the WSOP while outlasting both of the other bracelet-winner Brunsons!

Our new co-branded website will offer great services for all the ladies out there wanting to learn, have fun, improve, network, and participate in ladies-only tournaments all around the U.S.

Some of the new programs include a Worldwide Women's Player Ranking System for women only events, Woman Player of the Year, player profiles, tournament schedules, featured player spotlights, articles, event results, and a ladies forum section on's popular forum.

LIPS was founded in 2004 by Ms. Lupe Soto who has since grown the organization to a group of over 8,000 women around the nation who ask to be included and updated regarding ladies-only tournaments.

"We can't think of a more natural partnership than this one with Card Player, the brand that is synonymous with poker," said Lupe Soto, Founder and CEO, Ladies International Poker Series. "Being able to provide women poker players these new services and opportunities is a huge progression in women's poker. This will help us expand our reach to women who play women's only events and secure a ranking for them as they play."

LIPS is just coming off its Grand Championship, which took place at the Orleans Casino in Las Vegas. That event marked the beginning of the women's player ranking system. Casinos that host ladies-only poker tournaments or are seeking to host them should contact CEO Lupe Soto to make arrangements to be included in this exciting new program.

Soto states, "We have more women playing poker then ever before. With the LIPS Tour, women have an opportunity to be ranked, win their way into the LIPS Annual Championship, and other exciting events just for women."

Over 40 casinos are participating in the tour, with more being added all the time. Next stops on the LIPS Tour include the Legends of Poker Ladies Event at Bicycle Casino, the Ladies of the Derby Series at Hollywood Park Casino, the Gulf Coast Poker Championship at the newly resurrected Beau Rivage Casino in Biloxi, and always a favorite, the California State Ladies Championship at Ocean's 11 Casino. Any casino wishing to participate in the tour can still be added. For details and how to get involved, click on LIPS at the home page.

I invite all you ladies out there to check back often and watch our women's section grow! If you would like to be involved in our efforts, contact me with your ideas at
