The Women in Poker Hall of Fame is designed to honor women in poker who have acquired prominence and have made contributions to the poker world. The Hall, with its charter induction in 2008, currently selects two women for induction every other year.
The WiPHoF Induction Ceremony has been postponed due to Covid 19 and the safety of all participants. Although it was a difficult decision for the committee to make, it was best for the health of all. We look forward to the next session of the Women in Poker Hall of Fame when it can be done with the dignity and celebration it deserves.
In the mean time, think of women who you feel should be considered for WiPHoF induction. We will announce the open nominations once the time is right! Until then, stay healthy and safe!
Eligible Candidates for Induction — Candidates must meet the following requirements:
a) A candidate must have been active as a player or industry leader for a minimum of 10 years prior to nomination and 35 yrs of age or older.
b) Player/industry leader must have contributed to the world of poker in some significant way. For example, a candidate may qualify by either winning major poker tournaments, gained prominence through their poker success, or by making significant contributions to the industry of poker.
c) Player/industry leader candidate must be a proponent of women in poker- i.e.: refrain from publicly criticizing women’s tournaments.
d) All nominees must be approved by the Organization Committee and current Hall Members.
Our goal is not only to honor these wonderful women, but to contribute to causes that benefit the community as well. With that vision in mind, WiPHOF is proud to partner with Poker Gives as our charity of choice.
Poker Gives is a charity organization whose mission is to provide financial aid and humanitarian efforts to military families, homeless vets and children in need through support from the poker industry. Collectively this industry and the players have an opportunity to actually make a difference and to create a better world by providing a variety of social services to those in need.
The Women in Poker Hall of Fame is an all-volunteer organization. Many individuals, businesses and industry professionals contribute their time and talents to make the Hall a success.
