Player of the Year

The NEW WPA Player of the Year Program! 

 Yes... It Can Be You!

2020 & 2021 WPA Player of the Year Leaderboard

In a continued effort to recognize the achievements of women in poker, Woman’s Poker Association created a global Player of the Year program. All ladies tournaments are eligible for the WPA Leaderboard in North America and Tournament of Champions for WPA International 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. Additionally, if you are a regular in a poker room, encourage the operator to host women only events.  Then help them by sharing the tournament information and results with WPA so we may include them in our POY Program. 

All winners are on the Women's Poker Association website and the leaderboard is updated on a weekly basis.  If you attended an event and the results haven't been listed, it may be we do not have the results yet.  Feel free to send us links to any results pages to This email address is being protected from spambots.
