Jennifer Harman is one of the top female poker players in the world and plays in the largest cash games around, including the Big Game at the Bellagio where she plays against Doyle Brunson, Phil Ivey, and many of the other big names in poker.

Jennifer learned the game of poker by watching her father’s home game. One time when her father was fed up with the game he had her take his spot, and Jennifer was a big winner that night. From that point on her father would frequently ask her for advice during the home games.

Jennifer Harman became a professional poker player when she turned 21. She concentrated in her favorite game, Limit Holdem. Today, she is one of the best Limit Holdem players in the world, and she wrote the chapter on Limit Holdem in Doyle Brunson’s book, Super System 2.

At the 2000 World Series of Poker, Jennifer Harman decided to play Deuce to Seven Triple Draw for the first time. Having never played the game before, Jennifer got a few minutes of instruction from Howard Lederer before the tournament started. Jennifer went on to win the event for her first WSOP bracelet. She would win her second WSOP bracelet in 2002, while playing her best game, Limit Holdem.

Jennifer Harman had to take time off from poker in 2004, as she had to get a kidney transplant. When she came back to poker she impressed everyone with several strong finishes. Her experiences led her to create the organization known as CODA, or Creating Organ Donor Awareness.

Jennifer Harman lives in Las Vegas with her husband, Marco Traniello where she’s a regular in the “Big Game” at the Bellagio.
