PartyPoker.com has revealed that the fourth incarnation of its popular Women's World Open will take place from 23rd to 24th March.
24 players will compete in three 8-runner heats with the top two from each going through to the six woman final where $72,000 is up for grabs. Top billing goes to former WSOPE Main Event champion Annette Obrestad. Joining Annette15 will be Irish Open runner up Kara Scott, Laurence Grondin, Shelley Rubenstein, Stefanie Bergener, Maria Demetriou, Christine Klecz, Pippa Flanders and season two winner Soraya Homam. Defending champion Aisling Collins will be back to defend her title with runner up Kim Wooka from Japan hoping to go one better this time around.A PartyPoker.com spokesman said: "Last year Aisling proved that Britain's got talent but the same can be said about Japan in the form of Kim Wooka. Both will be strong contenders for the title this year. We've made the stacks deeper and the competition is just as fierce. It is great to have Kara in the line-up, she made her major breakthrough in the poker world by reaching the final table of the inaugural event and then she went on to cash big at the WSOP Main Event and Irish Open."Eddie Hearn, Director of Matchroom Sport said: "The PartyPoker.com Women's World Open has proved extremely popular with players, viewers and broadcasters over the last three seasons. As the game continues to grow, we have made a number of changes to our formats that enables theviewers to watch a deeper-stacked game with more skill, where players can really showcase their ability and flair. We are delighted to welcome back Aisling Collins who will be defending her title but it won't be easy as the likes of Annette Obrestad, Kara Scott, Laurence Grondin, Kim Wooka and Maria Demetriou will be looking to take it down."The tournament will be teleised on Five later this year with Jesse May in the commentary box alongside High Stakes Poker co-host Kara Scott and Tatjana Pasilic.
