Happy International Women's Day!

Many of you waited patiently for the 2020 WPA Ladies Poker Week schedule for Vegas this Summer. We chose today to announce on International Women’s Day where the world celebrates Women!

For many years, Women had to pick and choose which event to play during Ladies Poker Week. This year, WPA collaborated with Vegas poker rooms to suggest schedule dates to help eliminate this issue. Thank you to The Venetian Resort Las Vegas, Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, ARIA Resort & Casino, Rio All-Suites Hotel and Casino, World Series of Poker, Golden Nugget Las Vegas Hotel & Casino, SAHARA Las Vegas Hotel & Casino, South Point Hotel Casino & Spa, The Orleans Hotel & Casino, and Wynn Las Vegas poker rooms for their support of WPA and Women in poker!

PokerPowHER Logo Blk Red RGBPOKER POWHER is thrilled to team up with WPA to give more young women a seat at the poker table. We are a club led by women for women of all ages, to teach critical thinking skills, build confidence, develop discipline and the ability to assess risk- all through learning the game of poker.

We’re flipping the table on the status quo, but we can’t do it alone. Through our partnership with WPA, we need more experienced volunteers like you to teach more women to play poker in our area clubs. POKER POWHER has quickly grown from a group of moms and teenage girls to a large network of multi-generational players in seven states.

POKER POWHER sponsors a community-based network of poker-playing clubs. We’re connecting groups of high school girls, female college students, moms and professional women with highly-skilled, female poker instructors.

What a year for women in poker. Almost on a weekly basis we hear of a women’s poker success somewhere in the world. Women’s Poker Association couldn’t be prouder of these women!

Global Poker Index, GPI hosts the stats for Player of the Year for all poker festivals. Most recently, they announced the 2019 GPI Female Player of the Year, Kristen Bicknell. Well, Kristen is a ROCK STAR! She has won the title three years in a row. So incredible! Please take a moment to read the Poker News article on Kristen here.

kristen bicknell wsop 696x365What many people don’t know is there are 67 Countries with FEMALE PLAYER OF THE YEAR! We would like to feature them here. We have listed all the countries with a winner. Many countries only have ONE WOMAN who qualified with points. And many countries do not have any winners at all. 

We have tried to include as many POY winner’s photos as possible, but there are some with none. We also listed the runner ups – up to the top ten.

WPA has a Player of the Year program which launched for 2019 for LADIES ONLY EVENTS in North America. (Canada, Mexico and United States) which will announce our winner soon. The International WPA Player of the Year program is being designed now and will launch soon as well. But for now, we’re going to celebrate all the women around the world who have achieved their countries GPI Player of the Year.

Congratulations ladies from your Women’s Poker Association!
