Kathy Liebert Does Not Win WPT World Poker Finals

She gave it a good run, but Kathy Liebert did not win the WPT World Poker Finals.

Make that 0-for-147.

Going into the World Poker Finals, we just had a feeling that this would be the one where a woman broke through and claimed a World Poker Tour title.

We weren’t deterred after finding out only five women entered last year’s event. Nor were we deterred after only three entered this year.

Now we’re deterred.

Kathy Liebert, a woman, the only woman remaining in the Day 3 field, busted on the money bubble.

Maybe next time.

Still, it’s a solid field among the 27 remaining. Leading the way going into Day 4 is reigning WPT POY Andy Frankenberger with 658,500. He’s followed by Jack Schanbacher with 483,500. Christian Harder is third overall with 378,500.

Another former WPT POY, Jonathan Little, is fifth with 355,000. Other notables remaining include Hoyt Corkins (235,000), Matt Glantz (226,500), Matt Stout (221,000), Bernard Lee (84,000), Lee Markholt (61,000), and grinding out a likely min-cash, Allen “Chainsaw” Kessler (43,500).

UPDATE: Day 4 play concluded with 8 remaining. It’ll be a short day on Monday, as they’ll lose two and stop, with the final table set for Tuesday. Christian Harder is the current chip leader. Jonathan Little and Andy Frankenberger also remain. Get chip counts here.
