Women’s poker all star Kathy Liebert joined the WPT 100 Club over the weekend, becoming the second poker player to play in one hundred World Poker Tour events. Liebert is the highest grossing female poker player and has raked in over $5.3 million over her career. Her spot in the WPT 100 tour serves to cement her place as an all star in the world of women’s poker, and poker in general.
Liebert’s 100th event was the 2010 Legends of Poker tournament event, which took place at the Bicycle Casino in Los Angeles over the weekend. The only other poker player to participate in 100 WPT events is Erik Seidel, who reached the milestone last month in a tournament at the Bellagio Cup. The Bicycle Casino has a lot of sentimentality for Liebert, as it was the place that she played in her first WPT final table, as well as her first WPT tournament.
The name of the event, the “Legends of Poker”, is also fitting as Liebert is truly a legend. She has made six World Poker Tour final tables, has cashed out in 15 WPT events and has earned over $1.7 million in WPT winnings. She has also fared well in the World Series of Poker, with one WSOP bracelet, and 30 WSOP cashes. She also finished in 17th place in the WSOP Main Event twice – in 1998 and 2000.
Congratulations to Kathy on her latest achievement!
