Today, British actor, comedian and writer David Mitchell announced his engagement to top UK poker pro Victoria Coren with a simple advertisement placed in The Times which read:
“The engagement is announced between David, son of Mr and Mrs Ian Mitchell, of Oxford, and Victoria, daughter of Dr Anne Coren and the late Mr Alan Coren, of London.”
Victoria Coren, 38, graduated from Oxford University with a first-class degree and has since carved out a successful career for herself across a range of occupations which include writing, presenting and, of course, playing poker.
The talented Ms Coren is a member of Team PokerStars, and with $1,476,666 in live tournament winnings to her name is currently ranked 12th on the Women’s All Time Money List. Vicky’s biggest score came in 2006 at the European Poker Tour (EPT) London which she won for £500,000 ($941,513), and more recently she placed 2nd at the 2011 IFP World Championship for $100,000.
The Observer and Guardian newspaper columnist also often writes about the game and in September 2009 published her poker memoir entitled “For Richer, For Poorer: A Love Affair with Poker.”
In 2010, Victoria and confirmed bachelor David Mitchell appeared together on BBC quiz show called The Bubble and later in the year the singleton of seven years announced he was now dating someone.
