Vanessa Selbst, Jennifer Tilly, Angelica Hael and Terry King are set to be inducted into the Women in Poker Hall of Fame as its class of 2022, which was revealed on Tuesday.
Selbst made her name as one of the most successful tournament players in the world from the moment she broke out in 2006, with her first recorded live cash resulting in a World Series of Poker final table. She went on to win three WSOP gold bracelets and several other major titles on the way to accumulating $11.9 million in career tournament earnings, according to The Hendon Mob.
Tilly, an Academy Award nominee and the 2005 WSOP Ladies Championship gold bracelet winner, has been a regular presence in televised and live-streamed high-stakes cash games. Tilly has over $1 million in lifetime tournament earnings.

Hael, the Vice President of Global Tour Management for the World Poker Tour, has been with WPT for well over a decade. In her position, which oversees major tournaments all over the world, Hael has helped grow the game of poker while driving initiatives to bring more women of the game.
“I want to do more. I want to rally the sisterhood in poker and for all of us to grow this game for women,” Hael said to Tight Poker in October. “Women are literally moving the needle forward in poker, working on all of these initiatives. But we still have a lot to do.”
King, the 1978 WSOP Ladies Championship winner, has had a presence for over 50 years as a player, industry member and historian.
The ceremony is set to take place at the PokerGO Studios in Las Vegas on December 14.
