International Women’s Day Poker Tournament – March 8th, 2018
Come join the Steem Poker League and Lucksacks.com for the inaugural 100 SBD Women’s Day poker tournament!
In celebration of International Women’s Day, Lucksacks.com will be hosting a huge freeroll poker tournament in honor of all of our women on the Steem blockchain! We want this tournament to be as large as possible and to invite women of all skill levels to come join the growing Steem Poker League (@spl) community. There’s a lot already happening at Lucksacks.com and much more to come over the next few weeks and months and we want everyone to be a part of it!
However, this next month is for women.
Yes, we’re going to celebrate on International Women’s Day...but we’re also going to celebrate every week leading up to March 8th! If you’re not a skilled poker player, that’s OK. We’ll have weekly tournaments exclusively for women where you can improve your game and learn from one of the top poker players in the @spl – a brilliant woman herself: @bethalea! She’s not your average poker player. In fact, @bethalea is currently leading the entire league in Team-Up Tournament points!
To help prepare you for the Women’s Day tournament, which will be open to all registered league players, @bethalea will host two freeroll tournaments each week over the next four weeks. These will be exclusive games, just for women, with tips and advice from @bethalea for anyone who wants or needs it. If you’re not familiar with the Lucksacks.com website or are new to poker entirely, she’ll be there to help get you familiarized with navigating the site, learning the different types of games, and even advising on bets, statistics, and strategies.
If you’ve been thinking about playing poker but weren’t sure how to get started, now is your chance to get involved! Sign up on Lucksacks.com and join the Lucksacks/SPL Discord server! You’ll be greeted by @bethalea, who will be hosting the first women-only freeroll tomorrow night, February 13th. So make sure you get signed up today and start earning chips, making friends, and having fun!
We want the International Women’s Day tournament to be as large as possible, and as one of the sponsors, I’ll be donating the entire SBD payout from this and follow-up posts to the tournament pot and to cover the weekly games leading up to the main tournament. Our goal is to raise a minimum of 100 SBD for Women’s Day, plus additional funds for tournament bounties.
Yes, that’s right...there will be bounties on the head of every male player in the Women’s Day tournament!
If you’re not familiar with bounties, it means that any time a woman knocks out a man in this tournament, the woman who knocked that man out will receive an additional prize! For Women’s Day, that bounty will be 1 SBD per knockout! If there are 50 men in the tournament, that’s a potential 50 extra SBD in prizes!
There is no upside limit to the tournament pot, so whatever is earned from post rewards about the tournament will be added to the total fund!

Let’s make the Women’s Day tournament the Steem Poker League’s largest freeroll to date!
We’ll be giving away a guaranteed 135 SBD over the next month, so let’s show our support for the wonderful women of the Steem blockchain! But don’t just show them support on March 8th – make sure you’re supporting them year ‘round!
Please support those who support the poker community!
As the Steem Poker League runs entirely off of Steem blockchain rewards, it’s important to show your support for @spl and its creator and leader, @tuck-fheman. Without support, there cannot be free-entry tournaments and the necessary development to improve the site and grow the community. So please consider supporting the posts from @tuck-fheman, which go directly to league funding, and approving the witnesses who give their support to the league. These are some of the regular supporters and donators of the @spl, in no particular order, that would appreciate a witness vote:
