PokerStars Women is proud to introduce the PokerStars Women's Club!

Mark your calendars for January 7. Next Monday will launch a new era that will provide an innovative way for women to enjoy their favorite games on PokerStars, win weekly prizes, and join a rapidly growing community of amazing online poker players.
The friendly environment offers regular prizes and the chance to play in friendly games with other female players.

The much-anticipated PokerStars Women's Club is a new endeavor from the PS family that was created with the help of players around the world. Your suggestions and input helped form this exciting virtual club as an exciting place for women to play poker.



Registration is free, and players will be able to compete in free and low buy-in tournaments around the clock. Players can choose from three levels of play and build bankrolls through a series of tournaments and freerolls. Walk away with cash prizes, VIP store vouchers, and freeroll tickets. The levels offer the following opportunities:

Diamond Level
Buy-in: 100 FPP 30-day ticket (purchase from VIP store)
Daily times: 6:00 ET, 14:00 ET, 21:00 ET
Prizes: Tickets to Diamonds Sunday Club Freeroll, $5 guaranteed prize pool

Hearts Level
Buy-in: $.10
Daily times: 5:00 ET, 13:00 ET, 20:00 ET
Prizes: Tickets to Hearts Sunday Club Freeroll

Spades Level
Buy-in: $1.10
Daily times: 5:30 ET, 13:30 ET, 20:30 ET
Prizes: Tickets to Spades Sunday Club Freeroll

The Sunday Club freerolls will offer the chance to win cash and vouchers with which to claim free gifts from the VIP Store. We'll be offering women's clothing, jewelry, iPhone cases, and much more!

The Sunday Club freerolls have several time offerings as well:

Diamond Level
Sunday times: 6:00 ET, 14:00 ET, 21:00 ET
Prizes: $50 guaranteed prize pool, three (3) Club vouchers

Hearts Level
Sunday times: 5:00 ET, 13:00 ET, 20:00 ET
Prizes: $50 guaranteed prize pool, five (5) Club vouchers

Spades Level
Sunday times: 5:30 ET, 13:30 ET, 20:30 ET
Prizes: $200 guaranteed prize pool, five (5) Club vouchers

All of the daily tournaments can be found in the PokerStars lobby beginning on January 7. Under the "Tourney" tab in the lobby, look for "PokerStars Women's Club" games, all of which are listed in pink.

All PokerStars Women's Club information can be found on its main website page. Also stay tuned to this blog space, as well as our Facebook and Twitter pages for the latest information. All we can say now is there will be a "welcome" freeroll and a chocolates giveaway. Happy New Year!

Hello, I just noticed that the tickets for the Sunday freerolls are time limited , not even good for a month, dont you think that is going to produce disinterest in women playing club games?? Also the 100fpp buy in for a months worth of tickets for a very very low cash tourn is a bit much, peoples can get in a 1k tourn for 20 fpps daily. Seems that this club , although a good idea is a long way from what was and some tune ups are already necessary.

yah I finaly decide to join a league and there is little to offer. There isn't even league standings. I now have three tickets for one game what good are they? Why should I even bother to keep playing, just the week free roll?

The initial roll-out had some problems, I bought a diamond ticket and couldn`t enter the tourney. There were some comments on FB as well, but the problems from Monday seem to be fixed.

Check out Poker Stars Women on FB for freeroll on Thursday. The winner gets an ipad 2 and the rest of the final table gets leather jackets.

If this is the kind of prizes the Sunday games offer I think it will be quite worthwhile. The games run at the same times as the old league games, so no time issues if you were playing the old leagues.

I`m giving it the benefit of the doubt for the time being.

I'm still reserving complete judgement till the freerolls, but I'm not seeing the point in winning a bunch of tickets that are only good for 2 weeks.

The new club has been running for 5 days, and I currently have 3 tickets for the Spades club freeroll (equivalent to the old 1.10 league). Since they are only good for two weeks, where is the incentive for me to continue playing this level??

The diamond level is in the same time slot as the old $5.50 league, but it's a purchased ticket (100 FPPs). I won one of these also, and gained the princely sum of $2.50, compared to $70+ if I won the corresponding league game.

The Women's Elite $5.50 game is only available in the two early timeslots, so North and South America are left out again.

Maybe I'm missing something, but so far I'm disappointed.

Thanks everyone, its pretty good poker, and the real treat is getting into the tourneys and seeing players like Chilli, Joy, Megg, Karen, HokyPoky, gephoto08, Horsewoman and more pso women players.

Many of us cut our poker teeth together in the pso.
It is great to rail these players and meet them on the tables.

Annie, I don't know if these games fit into your schedule, but girl you would do great in them.

Cheers All
