The format of the $3,000 buy-in tournament is essentially a double shootout. The 36 entrants will be divided into six six-handed tables and the winner of each table will advance to the final round. The six ladies who finished in second place during their opening heat will have a second chance to make the final table in a consolation heat. The winner of the consolation heat will advance to the seven-handed final table and vie for a piece of the $108,000 prize pool. The champion of the event will walk away with $50,000.

The event boasts an international field of female pros headlined by WSOPE Main Event winner Annette “Annette_15” Obrestad. This will be the Norweigan pro’s first appearance in the televised event. Others in the field include WSOP bracelet winner Jennifer Tilly, EPT Dortmund winner Naujoks, Maria Demetriou, Eliza Burnett, Jen Mason, Stefanie Bergener and the Women’s World Open II winner Soraya Homam of Germany.
