2007 Ladies Champ Sally Anne Boyer Sues Harrah’s and WSOP Academy

by Lou on November 1, 2009

2007 WSOP Ladies’ Event winner Sally Anne Boyer (pictured right) filed a suit against Harrah’s and the World Series of Poker Academy for misusing her name and image. Boyer alleges they used her photograph for marketing and promotions without her permission.

Her suit claims she attended the academy for only one day but did not graduate, although in an interview with Lianna Shen for Poker Listings, Boyer is quoted as saying, “I attended the Academy, the World Series of Poker Academy—it was very helpful … I changed up my strategy a bit, and, it worked!”

She added, “The Academy is sponsored by the World Series, it’s for ladies only, and they limited to 100 women, and Annie Duke was one of the instructors! I played with her and it was just wonderful. I highly recommend it. She was a mentor to all of us. So great, very encouraging, and I was thrilled just to play with her.”

Despite what seems to have been a ringing endorsement of the Academy in her Poker Listings interview, Boyer now claims that the WSOP academy had nothing to do with her performance. No comment from Harrah’s.

This is another story that’s still developing, and we’ll bring you more news as it happens.
