Three Women Join Poker Hall of Fame
This year the second annual Women in Poker Hall of Fame event will take place in the Golden Nugget Casino in Las Vegas, starting on June 4 and continuing throughout the weekend.
The three women who will be added to the illustrious Hall of Fame are June Field, Jan Fisher and Cyndy Violette. And with other events going on at the same time in the Golden Nugget Casino, it looks set to be a top-notch weekend of poker.
The night also serves to raise money for PokerGives.org, the charitable organization co-founded by Mike Sexton and Fisher. The first night will start with a $200 + $30 charity poker tournament before the proper induction ceremony on the 5th.
"We couldn't be happier with this year's candidates,” said founder of Women in Poker Hall of Fame, Lupe Solo. “We welcome everyone to join us to celebrate this historical event and help support a wonderful charity at the same time."
Both the ceremony and the celebration are open for the public to attend, with your ticket price getting you a dinner, a commemorative gift as well as nomination rights for the 2010 event next year.
