Women in Poker Hall of Fame
If you’re a fan of women and poker, February 2nd will be a day to celebrate! The new Women in Poker Hall of Fame (WiPHOF) will induct its first women at a ceremony to be held at Binion’s Casino in Las Vegas.
“It’s definitely time for the woman in poker to have their own Hall of Fame to recognize their amazing contributions to the poker world. Unlike today, women weren’t always welcome in poker rooms. In the 1950’s, Las Vegas had fewer than 20 poker tables and women weren’t even allowed to play the game” said Lupe Soto, founder of the Ladies International Poker Series (LIPS Tour).
For the first inaugural year 4 woman have been chosen – Barbara Enright, Susie Isaacs, Linda Johnson and Marsha Waggoner.
