Welcome to the Hall

Celebrating Excellence, Contribution & Performance

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 women for induction to the Hall with public nominations. Then Hall Members and a select group of Media/Industry members take on the voting and selection process for the current year’s inductees.

This year, the public will act as “one of the voting members”. When the ballot is published, the public may cast their vote for their Top 3 choices for Induction. The public vote will be added to the Hall Member and Media/Industry votes to determine the selection. Voting begins October 6th, 2022 and closes October 14th, 2022 at Midnight PST.

We are proud to announce the Candidates for the 2022 Hall of Fame. Of the 54 nominated women, these women have been selected to be on the 2022 WiPHoF Ballot. Three of these amazing women will be Inducted at the Celebration and Induction Ceremony on Dec 14th, 2022 at 10AM at the Poker Go Studios.

2022 Selected Nominees for the Women in Poker Hall of Fame Ballot are: Angelica Hael, Liv Boeree, Kristen Bicknell Foxen, Terry King, Vanessa Selbst, Kara Scott and Jennifer Tilly.

Please learn more about them in our Candidates Section. You too will understand why these women are on a very short list for induction.
