Liebert has cashes dating back to 1994 around the United States including at Amarillo Slim's Superbowl of Poker, California State Championship and World Series of Poker.
In 1997, she finished second in a $3,000 No-Limit Hold'em event for $123,690. She finished 17th in the 1998 WSOP Main Event, repeating the feat two years later in the 2000 Main Event.
In 2002, she won the Party Poker Million Cruise for $1,000,000, becoming the first woman to win a $1 million prize. In 2011, she told PokerNews that this was her biggest achievement.
"If that had been a WPT event, I would have been the first woman to win a WPT event," she told PokerNews. "That was actually Steve Lipscomb’s first Travel Channel poker show, so I’m not sure that’s the one I’m most proud of but I did beat Phil Hellmuth, Chris Ferguson, and Mel Judah at the final table. So I guess in a sense that would be the biggest.
In 2002, she again finished runner-up in a bracelet event for $91,700 before winning her first bracelet in 2004. She won $1,500 Limit Hold'em Shootout event for $110,180.
A regular at the WSOP, Liebert has cashed 106 times for $1.4 million at the WSOP alone.
