WPA Player of the Year NEW for 2019
Yes… It Can Be You!
In a continued effort to recognize the achievements of women in poker, Women’s Poker Association created a global Player of the Year program for 2019. All ladies tournaments are eligible for the WPA Leaderboard if they meet the criteria.
Women’s Poker Association is not a poker tour. We are an all-volunteer organization in the business of elevating the poker experience for women. The WPA Player of the Year Program is an additional way to support these goals. You too can help support women in poker by informing us of any local public ladies events which meet our criteria, and we’ll add them to the campaign. Many properties are already on board! Seminole Hard Rock Hollywood, Borgata Casino, Bicycle Casino, Green Valley Ranch Casino, Hollywood Park Casino, Orleans Casino, Horseshoe Tunica, bestbet Casino, Canterbury Park Casino, Hollywood Casino Columbus, and so many more! All winners are featured here at Women’s Poker Association and the leaderboard is updated after each event result is submitted.
The WPA Player of the Year receives a Title, Trophy & Prizes! Top 10 Finishers are invited to a WPA Player of the Year Freeroll in Spring 2020.
Simply enter qualified ladies events, do your best, and we’ll keep track of your success!

Hey poker players… It’s time to #RaiseItUp!
As an association created to Educate, Elevate and Empower women, we have listened!
Last summer, the WPT hosted a Women’s Summit where industry representatives gathered to discuss reasons why there are not more women playing poker in live venues and what can be done to change it. The overwhelming response was the poker environment wasn’t a very welcoming place for women. Whether real or perceived, the fear of harassment at the tables exists and it’s an issue we need to address.
WPA’s answer is a global initiative to improve on the game at all levels! From players, to poker rooms and the businesses that support our industry, we’re asking everyone’s commitment to #RaiseItUp! Raise the RESPECT + FUN = Growth in poker!
YOU CAN BE PART OF THE MOVEMENT TO IMPROVE OUR POKER WORLD!
