2013 BLUFF Reader’s Choice Nominees: Favorite Female Player

The poker landscape has seen a litany of changes in 2012, and as the year winds toward a close it’s once again time for the BLUFF Reader’s Choice Awards. Your votes will decide the winners in 14 unique categories covering all of the players, personalities, locations and content the poker world has to offer.

The two most popular categories readers vote on year in and year out are Favorite Male and Female Players. Fans are quick to show their love for their favorite player. There were some outstanding performances by women this year: Amanda Musumeci finised runner-up in a WSOP bracelet event and then final tabled the National Championsip, Lauren Kling and Melanie Weisner both cashed four times at the WSOP and not to mention Vanessa Selbst winning her second WSOP bracelet.

Live Boeree won last year’s contest by a wide margin with 37.6% of the voting. Vanessa Selbst was next with 20.4%, Vanessa Rousso pulled in 18.1% and Maria Ho garnered nearly 15% of the votes. In a bit of foreshadowing, a nearly unknown Musumeci still got 9.1% of the votes.

This year’s nominees include:

  • Amanda Musumeci
  • Lauren Kling
  • Liv Boeree
  • Melanie Weisner
  • Vanessa Selbst

Voting for the 2013 BLUFF Reader’s Choice Awards opens on November 28 at BLUFF.com.
