It should be no surprise that Kathy Liebert final tabled this event a year ago and nearly won it -- she's 39th on the all-time money list (with nearly $5.8 million in tournament earnings), and far and away the most accomplished female tournament poker player in the world.
Liebert has made six televised WPT final tables, with two more near-misses (7th and 8th place). That's three times as many WPT final tables as any other woman. (Jennifer Harman and J.J. Liu each have two WPT final tables.) Liebert is tied for 8th place on the all-time list with 15 cashes on the World Poker Tour, where she has earned nearly $1.75 million. She is also one of the few players to have taken part in more than 100 WPT tournaments.
Liebert made a run in LAPC a couple of weeks ago, finishing in 18th place. Maybe her hot streak will continue in San Jose.
