Lupe Soto and Poker Hall of Fame

Poker is not exclusively male dominated any longer. There are some very talented and successful female poker players out there that will give many men a run for their money. Thanks to the induction of the Poker Hall of Fame for Women in 2008, these poker goddesses are being honoured for their successes.

In 2018 over 50 submissions were made by the public but the WiPHoF committee narrowed it down to 11 candidates that stood a chance of being inducted in this honourable Hall of Fame. The candidate that stood out far above the rest is Lupe Soto. She has changed the role of women in poker incredibly.

This led to the Women in Poker Hall of Fame in 2008 and in 2013 she created the Senior Poker Tour to include senior players.
