Louise Butler Signs with Partypoker Ladies

louise-butler-pokerLouise Butler has signed with Team partypoker Ladies. The Irish poker pro joins a roster that includes Natalia Breviglieri, Kristen Bicknell, and Beata Jambrik.

Butler commented on signing with partypoker and how she’s glad to be part of the sponsored team:

“I’m so excited to be a part of the partypoker team. I love the direction the company is going and I can’t wait to get involved in the creation of a regular schedule of events online for ladies.”

Partypoker rolled out the ladies-only concept in September so that other women could play and fraternize together. And they’ve quickly assembled a sponsored team to promote this agenda.

Butler should fit in well because she has some impressive online results, including $305,000 in online winnings. The bulk of her winnings ($185k) have come at PokerStars. But she’s also racked up another $27,308 at partypoker under the name “lou045.”

Louise is actually Ireland’s top online MTT player, thanks to her $305k in winnings 3,094 cashes. This shows that she’s earned her living though a high volume, rather than just a few big scores. Speaking of which, her biggest cash is $6,281.

Butler Should Make More Live Tournament Appearances

louise-butler-partypokerThe one thing missing from Butler’s resume is a solid live track record. In fact, she’s only earned $1,797 through two live cashes.

But signing the sponsorship deal with partypoker means that we’ll likely see Butler on the live tournament felt more often.

She’s already set to take part in the Caribbean Poker Party (Nov. 19-25) because she won a $12,000 prize package. Held at the The Level at Meliá Caribe Tropical in Punta Cana, this event will offer a $5 million guaranteed Main Event.

Now a member of Team partypoker Ladies, Butler will be appearing on the site’s Twitch channel. And this will give you a better chance to watch her play.
