A lot has changed on the women’s money list since our last look at this leaderboard a year ago. Most notably, four-time bracelet winner Kristen Foxen has surpassed bracelet winner Kathy Liebert in career earnings to claim the second-place spot. The 37-year-old Canadian-born poker pro has added more than $1.76 million in earnings in the interim, increasing her career total to just shy of $8 million.

Foxen has added five six-figure scores to her already long résumé in the last 12 months, including her four final-table finishes and one win already recorded in 2024.

While Foxen’s lifetime haul continues to grow at a rapid rate, she still has a long way to go to surpass current leader Vanessa Selbst. The three-time bracelet winner accumulated $10,899,027 in her career before retiring from professional poker in 2018. The 39-year-old has made just a few appearances since, adding just shy of $55,000 across a pair of in-the-money finishes. While she is no longer consistently adding to her tally, she does still have more than a $2.9 million lead over Foxen.

Liebert now also has more than $7 million in career earnings to her name. The 56-year-old poker pro cashed for nearly $102,000 in 2023 following a strong 2022 campaign.

Maria Ho secured the sixth-largest score of her career toward the end of 2023, finishing third in the $1,500 mystery millions event at the inaugural World Series of Poker Paradise festival for $200,000. The 40-year-old poker pro now has more than $4.5 million in career cashes under her belt.

Only $356,090 separates fifth-ranked Joanne Liu from tenth-ranked Maria Lampropulos, which means this leaderboard is primed for plenty of shake ups in the near future. ♠
