Vanessa Rousso doesn't mind playing men.

For the first time ever, the High Heels Poker Tour is inviting men to one of its events.

The HHPT will be co-sponsoring the a Battle of the Sexes No-Limit Hold'em tournament on Oct. 10 Tampa Bay Downs, Florida to benefit the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.

"We are proud to be able to find a unique competition to include everyone, since breast cancer is not a gender specific disease," said a HHPT spokesperson.

The event will feature a unique format that has women and men play separately until only five men and five women remain. The players will then be consolidated to a final table of 10.

Whoever takes down the event will win bragging rights not only for themselves, but their entire gender.

The event will feature a $100 buy-in with $20 re-buys and an optional $50 add-on at the end of three rounds.

Prior to the Battle of the Sexes event, the HHPT will be holding a $200 No-Limit Hold'em tournament at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on Oct. 2 as part of its Fall Classic Poker Series.

The HHPT will also be hosting two more events in Florida before the year is complete. Check the HHPT website for complete details.

The HHPT was founded by Lauren Failla in 2007 with the goal of empowering women to become champions in the world of poker.
