Best Female Finishes at the WSOP Main Event

Barbara Enright's fifth place finish in the 1995 World Series of Poker Main Event was the highest ever by a female and the only final table for a woman, but as a percentage of the field, Gaelle Baumann's tenth place finish in 2012 was the best and matched Elisabeth Hille for the largest cash. That gives us three ways to look at the best female results in the Main Event.
