Female poker players to watch for in the 2012 WSOP Main Event

The ladies have been performing extremely well at the 2012 World Series of poker thus far, and although they haven’t been able to capture that elusive bracelet to cap-off their 2012 WSOP, they have been making final table after final table, and it seems only a matter of time before the 4+ year drought is over.

In addition to their open-bracelet drought, the Ladies have also been stymied in the World Series of Poker Main Event, virtually since the tournament began in 1971. Since the beginning there has only been one woman that has made the final table of the Main Event, Barbara Enright in 1995; with Annie Duke coming oh so close in 2000, when she finished in 10th place.

So is 2012 the year that there is a female presence at the WSOP Main Event final table? If it is I would expect it to be one of the following ladies doing the honors:
