Feminization has got it going on by continually setting its own rules for almost every single area of human life and the world’s development. Moreover, as it happens, poker is no exception to the revolutionary and steadfast expansion of the feminist movement all over the world. Given that gambling was initially solely a male obsession, the tendency towards this old-school pastime by women has picked up much steam as well as admiration among “pokered-up” individuals.
Surprisingly, there is a substantial number of upbeat and self-motivated female poker players in the industry. These women have proven not only able to keep up with the opposite sex but, to men’s great sexist disappointment, sometimes lady poker players even surpass the self-important gender at poker. Now, let’s tackle the list of the most successful female performances in poker so far and get some inspiration from these extraordinary stories.
Probably the highest rated woman ever in poker history, Vanessa Selbst can show off the most significant victories in the Partouche Poker Tour where Vanessa hit it big with $1.8 million. Moreover, she’s got three (!!!) World Series of Poker bracelets and over $11 million of poker wins.

Annette made it to the top at that very age when most girls’ minds are captivated by boys, fashion, and the upcoming prom. Being a teenager, this girl did handle the vast spectrum of lows and highs of adolescence. She got serious-minded to make it big in poker instead of getting plastered at puberty-laden parties. She worked up the World Series of Poker in 2007 by winning $2 million which was followed by a series of other striking performances in her poker career.
Vanessa is one of those rare poker bosses who made a six-figure number three times (!!!). However, it wasn’t her best score. Rousso’s top and most remarkable game, EPT Grand Final, was to take place in Monaco in 2007 and be triumphantly marked by her winning the cash of over $700,000.
The nickname “Iron Maiden” Liv received was a stark verbal representation of her inherent skills of a professional gambler.
