Donated by: Jennifer Harman

Here is your chance to have a private one-on-one lunch experience with Jennifer Harman, one of the most iconic female poker players of all time. Jennifer is a living legend that has already been inducted into the Poker Hall of Fame.

If you dream of playing during the World Series of Poker with millions watching your every move on television, you have a thing or two to learn from Jennifer. She has won two World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelets in open events, one of only three women to have done so. Jennifer will tell you stories that you have never heard before, from her triumphs to her trying times throughout her career. Playing poker on the world stage is not always as easy as it seems on television. Harman won her first WSOP bracelet in 2000 at the No Limit Deuce to Seven Lowball Event (at a final table that also included fellow professionals Lyle Berman and Steve Zolotow).

She had never played that game prior to the event, but received a five-minute tutoring session from Howard Lederer before playing. She won her second WSOP bracelet in 2002 at the $5K Limit Texas hold 'em event (the field also included Mimi Tran, Humberto Brenes, and Allen Cunningham). She was the first woman to hold two bracelets in WSOP open events, joined by Vanessa Selbst in 2012 and Loni Harwood in 2015. In 2004, Harman took a year away from poker to have her second kidney transplant.

Problems with her kidneys – shared by her sister and mother, who died from the same illness when Harman was 17 – had plagued her since her childhood. Since her return to the poker tournament circuit, Harman has finished 4th at the World Poker Tour Five-Diamond World Poker Classic, 5th in the inaugural Professional Poker Tour event, and 2nd in the WSOP Circuit Championship Event at the Rio. Harman authored the limit hold'em chapter for Super System II. Harman is the only woman who is a regular player in the "Big Game", the high-stakes cash game at the Bellagio. She was also an active participant in "The Corporation", a group of high-stakes poker players who played Andy Beal for limits of up to $100,000/$200,000.

Harman has appeared on the GSN series High Stakes Poker and on the NBC series Poker After Dark, where she won Week 8's tournament. In 2007, Harman finished as runner-up in the inaugural World Series of Poker Europe, where she lost in the HORSE event to Thomas Bihl. Harman was also a member of "Team Full Tilt" at Full Tilt Poker. Jennifer's total live tournament winnings exceed $2,700,000. $1,022,174 of her total winnings have come from cashes at the WSOP. Although Harman has had success in tournament poker, most of her wealth and prestige has come from playing in high stakes cash games.
