The Women in Poker Hall of Fame was created in 2008 to honor those who have achieved success as players or have made contributions to the poker world off the felt.

The Hall is currently made up of 21 women, 19 of which are still living and act as voters. There is also a panel of eight poker media members. Each voting member gets 10 votes that they can either cast for one candidate, or split among multiple nominees. This year, the public’s collective vote will act as one voting member.

The induction ceremony will take place on Wednesday, Dec. 14 at 10 a.m. at the PokerGO studio at Aria in Las Vegas and will be live streamed globally.
