About Us

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, also recognizes other friends of Women in Poker Hall of Fame who have contributed significantly to women in poker.

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 and homeless vets 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 created by Lupe Soto, a poker enthusiast.  Many individuals, businesses and industry professionals contribute their time and talents to make the Hall a success.
