888Poker partner with The Poker League of Nations at 888Live LondonTomorrow, I fly from London Heathrow to LAX.
In another tomorrow, I may fly to Mars.
33.9 million miles.
Will we have machine guns?
Will we create Paris, Rome and London, and with it Eiffel Towers, Coliseums and Big Bens?
Will we have gender equality?
Then logic replaces emotion.
God didn’t write these blueprints.
888Poker and Poker League of Nations Join Forces
Without a shadow of a doubt, the #MeToo movement has helped females raise their profile within poker. For whatever reason – heartfelt, cynical, to put more bums on seats – there has been a growth spurt with women in poker in the past 12-months that coincides with Milano’s tweet.
Poker rooms, be it live or online, have felt a duty to act.
Ladies events are flourishing.
Female ambassadors grow in number, as do the execs that steer the ships.
One such example is 888Poker, who count Sofia Lovgren, Kara Scott, Vivian Saliba and Ana Marquez amongst their ambassadorial team, and this week, they extended their relationship with female game-changers, by hooking up with the Poker League of Nations (PLON).
Maureen Bloechlinger and Lena Evans founded PLON in 2017, as a conduit to lobby the poker world for more ladies poker events, and they have quickly become the most significant female poker group in the world with over 3,000 members spread over 25 different nations.
On Sunday, December 2, at 19:00, 888Poker and PLON come together to host the £100 Ladies Event at 888Live London. The winner of the event will receive an 888Live poker package for the Bucharest event slated for March 2019.
“PLON is exceedingly pleased to partner with 888poker LIVE London, as ladies’ events are the perfect opportunity and vehicle to build on and support our worldwide ladies’ community whilst providing a comfortable platform for women of a wide swath of experience – from novice to professional players to compete within a world-class environment,” PLON officials said in a statement. “The LIVE London schedule brilliantly allows ladies, travelling a distance to play, not only the Ladies Event, but also the Main Event, and many side events.”
