Player Profile: Wendeen Eolis

Wendeen Eolis
Wendeen Eolis may not sit on the tip of your tongue when it comes to poker such as a Phil Ivey or Patrik Antonius; but she has been around the business for longer than both combined.

Eolis was the first woman to cash in the World Series of Poker Main Event back in 1986, and when she finished in the money in 1993, she also became the first woman to log a second Main Event cash.

Adding four further cashes in the WSOP to her poker CV she was nicknamed the 'Grand Dame of Poker' by WSOP Commissioner Jeffrey Pollack in 1997, and in 2006 was also appointed to the WSOP Players Advisory Council.

Playing today, and seated with 38,000 in chips, Eolis will be looking to capitalise on the great start she has made to Event 54 to cement her spot as truly the Great Dame of Poker!
