Biography

Kelly Minkin is an American poker player with over $1.5 million in career earnings.

The largest cash of her career came in 2015, narrowly missing out on becoming the first female winner of a World Poker Tour event. She finished third in the WPT Lucky Hearts Poker Open for $262,912.

Minkin was the last woman standing in the WSOP Main Event in both 2015 and 2019, finishing 29th and 50th respectively. She is one of only five women to have achieved this feat on two or more occasions (Maria Ho (3), Annie Duke, Marsha Waggoner and Gaelle Baumann).

In 2021, she gave birth to a son named Izaia.
