Since this leaderboard was last highlighted six months ago, Kathy Liebert recorded 22 in-the-money finishes, adding over $211,000 in earnings along the way. With more than $6.9 million in lifetime cashes under her belt, the 55-year-old bracelet winner is close to becoming just the second female player in poker history to surpass $7 million in earnings. Liebert has managed a few deep runs of note in recent months, including a fifth-place showing in the inaugural World Poker Tour Ladies Championship for $28,847, a 13th-place finish in the WPT Prime Championship for another $45,000, and a fourth-place showing in the 2023 Card Player Poker Tour Venetian main event for another $52,723.

Kristen Foxen joined Selbst and Liebert as only the third female player to accrue more than $6 million. Foxen has cashed for just shy of $260,000 since the start of last August, bringing her career total to more than $6.2 million. The 36-year-old, three-time bracelet winner has cashed eight times in that span, including a seventh-place finish for $21,157 in the same CPPT that Liebert ran deep in. She then went on to make two final tables at the PokerGO Cup, adding $153,600 with her third and sixth-place finishes in two $10,000 buy-in events at that high-stakes series.

With 12 cashes totaling more than $128,000 in the past half year, Joanne ‘J.J.’ Liu has surpassed both Vanessa Rousso and Annette Obrestad on this leaderboard to claim the sixth-place spot. The two largest scores in recent months for the 57-year-old were a runner-up finish in a $1,000 WSOP Online Circuit event in January for $31,750 and a win in another tournament at the same price point a week later for another $35,814 and her first career WSOPC gold ring. ♠
