Shooting Star Bio: Kathy Liebert
Level 2: 50-100, ante
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 more than $5.6 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.
Our video hostess Jacque Williams will be interviewing Kathy Liebert during the first break, so stay tuned.
