PokerStars to sponsor Ft. Lauderdale-based High Heels Poker Tour


LinkedIn, the world’s largest poker school, announced its sponsorship of the High Heels Poker Tour, which is based in Ft. Lauderdale.

Founded in 2007, the HHPT was created to empower women who want to become champions in the growing world of poker. Like PokerStars, the HHPT seeks to provide the best competitive environment where women can explore, develop and continue growing and learning top strategies to perfect their “A” game.

The PokerStars sponsorship will include support for HHPT’s growing roster of tournaments. The tour will have three events in Florida (Dania Jai-Alai, Hard Rock Hollywood and Tampa Bay Downs) in the coming weeks and months.

“PokerStars has all of the attributes in a online partner that female players crave: an incredible variety of quick, entertaining games that range from low buy in sit-and-go tournaments and cash games to serious tournament play, all in an environment where women can learn the game, develop their skills and truly become champions,” said Lauren Failla, founder of the High Heels Poker Tour and <em>Ante Up Magazine</em> columnist. “With champions like Vanessa Rousso, Katja Thater and Vicky Coren, our players have a whole new set of role models to emulate and challenge, online and at the tables."

HHPT will share its grand finale, a $1K buy-in, at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure in January. For more information about HHPT’s upcoming schedule click <a href="">here</a>
