There are only a few women in the field of professional poker.

This is the reason why female professional poker player Susie Isaacs is very well respected in this industry. Her achievements are not typical achievements as she has been a holder of two World Series of Poker bracelets since the 1990s.

Born in Nashville, Tennessee on December 18, Susie Isaacs is one of those poker players who have been exposed to the game of poker early in life. At first, she was merely used by her older cousins to be a look-out so their parents would not find out that they were playing poker at a very young age. From being a look-out, Susie Isaacs developed her interest in the game and soon thereafter, she had started to join her cousins in playing poker.

At a very young age, Susie Isaacs knew that she very much wanted to play poker. She was so serious that she even sold her comic books to have enough money to play poker.

Susie Isaacs participated in the US$1,000 Women's Seven-Card Stud event once again and emerged triumphant for the second time. This time, this female professional poker player was able to take home a sum of US$38,000 aside from the second World Series of Poker bracelet that she won.

In 1998, this female professional poker player may have not won first place in the US$10,000 No Limit Hold'em event of the World Series of Poker. Nevertheless, she had the chance to place tenth.
