On Saturday, August 21, 2021, BBC&C collaborated with the Ladies International Poker Series (LIPS) to host our first ladies event. There were a total of 72 ladies in attendance ranging from local players, to those who traveled in from other states. Bridgette Adkins, of Kansas City, MO (pictured below) took first place in the event.
Bridgette has a notable poker record, placing in three other LIPS poker events this year alone. Bridgette has also placed in several Heartland Poker Tour events and WSOP Circuit events out of Tulsa, OK over the past eight years (just to name a few).

Thank you to all the ladies who joined us this past weekend, including the event organizer Tina Stafford. We are overjoyed with the attendance numbers, specifically for an all-ladies event just days before Hurricane Henri.
