by Card Player News Team |  Published: Jan 12, 2022


Half of the women in the top ten on the female all-time money list have added six figures in earnings so far in 2021. Kathy Liebert helped secure her hold on the second-place spot on the list with 27 cashes this year, including six at the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas this fall. The 54-year-old bracelet winner and Women in Poker Hall of Fame member has cashed for $143,542 in 2021, bringing her lifetime total to more than $6.4 million.

Hot on her heels is three-time bracelet winner Kristen Bicknell. The Canadian poker pro has added $247,756 in earnings to her career tally this year, putting her just shy of $5.7 million. The largest of her 13 in-the-money finishes this year came when she finished fourth in the Card Player Poker Tour Venetian main event for $90,954 back in February. She recently finished 15th in the World Poker Tour Rock’N’Roll Poker Open main event for $40,860.

Women in Poker Hall of Famer Maria Ho has been busy working as a commentator for PokerGO this year, but still managed to add $148,138 to her lifetime tournament totals with six cashes in 2021. Her largest score came when she finished 20th from a field of 1,328 in the massive $10,000 Wynn Millions event for $97,274. She also made a final table at the WSOP, placing fifth in the $3,000 H.O.R.S.E. event for another $39,423. She is now within striking distance of the $4 million mark.

Women in Poker Hall of Fame member Joanne ‘J.J.’ Liu has cashed 18 times this year, accruing $135,159 along the way to grow her lifetime total to more than $3.4 million. Liu made her fifth career WSOP final table this fall, finishing fifth in the $1,000 Ladies event for $26,458.

Rounding out this list is bracelet winner Loni Hui, née Harwood. Hui has 10 cashes under her belt this year, including a recent win in a $600 preliminary event at the Rock’N’Roll Poker Open for $85,355. With $136,997 in cashes in 2021, she now sits with more than $3.3 million in lifetime scores. ♠
