Most WSOP Final Tables in One Year, Women

In 1995, Annie Duke became the first woman to reach two final tables in one year. She finished 6th in both the $1,500 Limit Omaha Hi/Lo ($12,285) and the $1,500 Pot-Limit Hold 'Em ($13,860). She repeated the feat in 1996 (and again in 2003), while Jennifer Harman matched her in 2002 (and 2003 and 2010), and Kathy Liebert became the third woman to do it, just over a week before Duke and Harman in 2003.

Cyndy Violette set a new women's record with three final tables in 2005, finishing 2nd in the $2,000 No-Limit Hold 'Em ($295,970), 7th in the $5,000 Pot-Limit Hold 'Em ($44,930), and 7th in the $3,000 Limit Hold 'Em ($44,820). Vanessa Selbst sort of tied her in 2012 with three Top 9 finishes, although one was a tie for 9th-16th in the $10,000 Heads Up No-Limit Hold 'Em (she also made two final tables in 2007 and 2008). Loni Harwood matched Violette with three final tables in 2013.
