Well, it’s that time again. Party Poker and MatchSport have announced the location and dates for the upcoming Women’s World Open 4, and I predict this year’s event is gonna be a doozy.
The locale: London.
The dates: March 23rd and 24th, 2010.
This exciting, two – day, estrogen – heavy competition will be made up of 24 members. The buy – in is $3,000 buy – in, and total prize pool is a very cool $72K. Final table will have 6 players.
Already committed to this affair are Team PartyPoker.com’s Kara Scott together with Annette Obrestad. Also getting a piece of the action will be Women’s World Open 3 winner, Aisling Collins along with that same event’s 2nd place finisher, Kim Wooka. Way to stack up the drama, Party Poker!
Other amazing poker pros on hand will be Laurence Grondin, Stefanie Bergener, Shelley Rubenstein, Christine Klecz, Maria Demetriou, and Pippa Flanders. As well, Women’s World II winner Soraya Homam will take part. It’s WW drama, squared.
And here is a bit of All About Eve irony: Aisling Collins’ rather intense performance in 2009 ended up garnering a celebrity admirer, in none other than that event’s commentator Annette Obrestrad. This year, mentor is going to go toe to toe mentee.
Likewise, it will be truly fascinating to see how Aisling does playing against her nemesis last year, Kim Wooka (which is Japanese for “2nd place finisher / Dr. Moriarty). Wooka clearly has lots to prove, so you should not be surprised to get a heavy stacked game rife with brutal competition this year.
I’m soooo there! I just can’t wait!
