The Women’s Bootcamp, put together by PokerStars and Poker Power, saw its big conclusion in Cyprus earlier this week. The Bootcamp gathered female poker enthusiast from all over the globe for an 8-week experience focused on improving different areas of their poker game. In the end, ten participants were selected for the final showdown in Cyprus.
The Cyprus Showdown came with a big promise, as the eventual winner was to receive an entry for the EPT Prague Main Event, allowing one participant to test their newly-found skills in one of the biggest live tournaments around.
When it was all said and done, that opportunity went to Louise Ulrick. Ulrick managed to outlast the other nine players and will receive a full package for the upcoming EPT Prague event, covering the €5300 Main Event entry, travel, and accommodations.
For a former math teacher turned consultant, this will be by far the biggest and most significant experience of her poker career, coming on the heels of the Bootcamp that, in her own words, helped her learn a lot about herself.

PokerStars has put a lot of effort towards bringing more women to the green felt, and we’ll probably see more initiatives like this one in the near future. With overwhelmingly positive feedback from the participants and the general poker public, it is clear that we need more similar events.
