LIPS: Women’s Poker Tour Holds Its First Live Event Since The Pandemic  

The Ladies International Poker Series Tours (LIPS) makes a comeback after a year. This will be the first time when LIPS will be holding a live event since the start of the coronavirus pandemic. The live event will be held at the South Point poker room in Las Vegas.

Founder of LIPS, Lupe Soto, welcomed many close friends and acquaintances who had travelled all the way to Las Vegas to participate. “It’s a beautiful thing as some of these women have been travelling together for 15-17 years. This is a reunion of epic proportions,” Soto said.

The LIPS tournament series which is registered as the Nevada State Ladies Poker Championship will have a USD 275 buy-in to its No-Limit Hold’em Main Event. The tournament will be hosted at the Grandview Lounge next to the South Point poker room.

LIPS was founded by Soto in 2004 in order to create a safe place for women players to play poker. The game has been a male-dominated game with many poker rooms witnessing a large turn out of male players. During her initial days, Soto worked with the World Series of Poker and World Poker Tour but now LIPS runs its own events.

Speaking of what got her into the game, Soto stated, “I was one of the very few women in a poker room. I started off as being the girlfriend who sat behind the guy to learn the game and started kicking him under the table when he was doing things wrong.”

Along with Soto, co-hosts Linda Johnson and Jan Fisher are also well-known advocates for women in poker. Johnson, who was also inducted into the Poker Hall of Fame in 2011, said that women-only poker events had a very different environment than other usual poker tournaments. Stating that the environment was much more relaxed and open.
