Women are a very important part of the poker community and many of them are really successful in the last years. Below, we are presenting the Top-5 Female Players for 2013.

Vanessa Selbst

Vanessa Selbst is widely regarded by her peers as not only being the most successful female poker player of all time but also one of the best players in the world right now regardless of gender. 2013 has certainly seen her start with a bang too, not only did she propose to her girlfriend in the first major event of the year at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure, she also took down a win in the $25,000 High Roller event there.

Ana Marquez

Though Ana Marquez hasn’t had any wins so far this year, she has certainly had a high level of consistency in most of the events that she has played and there are a lot of them. She works very hard and enters as many events as she can and cashes in a fairly large percentage of them. She is currently listed on the Global poker Index at number two in the top female tournament poker players in the world…behind Selbst.

Liv Boeree

The British PokerStars Team Pro is also in the top five on those GPI rankings and has had a steady start to the year so far and put in a very impressive performance in the WPT in the recently played out WPT Venice Grand Prix.

Victoria Coren

Victoria is another British poker pro who has a very good start to 2013, with her scoring well in London in March after a 9th place finish in the PokerStars UKIPT £2,000 High Roller and then going even better in the £10,000 High Roller by finishing in sixth place for a payout of £67,130.

Hui Chen-Kuo

Hui Chen-Kuo has had a year much so far that is much like that of Ana Marquez, not winning any titles as such but consistently finishing in the money in each of the events that she has played. This includes a 4th place finish at the Deep Stack Extravaganza, a 17th place in the Aussie Millions Main Event and a 9th place finish in a side event at the Aussie millions too.
