Kathy Liebert is the all-time leading female tournament money winner in professional poker. She has been one of the most respected players on tour for over a decade, and is the proud owner of a coveted World Series of Poker Championship bracelet earned in 2004 at the $1500 NLHE Shootout event. She has amassed nearly $5,000,000 in tournament earnings in an amazing 168 major cashes and she has 12 wins to her credit (a whopping 7% of her cashes).
Her now iconic status had humble beginnings. A graduate of Marist College in Poughkeepsie, NY, with a degree in business and finance, Liebert is known for her cool, incisive play and her professional demeanor. Once a Dunn & Bradstreet executive, she "discarded" the corporate world for the world of cards. After building a nest egg playing the stock market, Liebert took a chance and began playing in the card rooms of the Colorado Rockies, where she started with $5 Limit Poker. Over the years, she has built up a reputation as a feared and respected competitor in the extremely challenging world of tournament poker. She is also widely respected as an expert in all poker disciplines and in cash games.Kathy Liebert's Blog
