By Jim Reid
July 21, 2023

This week, if we can make it through some technical issues early on, we are throwing back to an excellent interview of Lupe Soto by Kim “PetVet” Kilroy as part of her Poker Empowerment series! Lupe is the founder of Ladies International Poker Series (LIPS), and a member of the Senior Poker Tour, Women in Poker Hall of Fame, Vegas Connected, Poker Gives, and the Women’s Poker Association (WPA). An important member of the poker industry and advocate for women in poker. Lupe talks about various ventures and projects aimed at women in poker, including some ways that men can show their support (Are you a Purple Tie Guy?) Plus we give away a free prize at the end for folks in the YouTube chat. Join us LIVE on YouTube next Monday at 7:30 ET for free to ask our guests questions in real-time, and you can win too!
