Sofia Lovgren Looking Forward to WSOP 2016

888Poker signed Sofia Lovgren to become an ambassador back in April 2014, and to represent the site at online and live events across the globe. That represented quite a challenge to the young Swedish player as she is an online cash grinder who is mostly used to plying her trade away from the limelight of the live poker tournament scene.
Nevertheless, the 26 year-old pro has still managed to add a further $53,180 to her live tournament tally of $182,617 during her tenure as an 888Poker ambassador. She has also sported her sponsored site’s patches at various tournaments hosted across many different countries, including cashing in at events held in the USA, UK, Spain, France, and Malta, to name but a few.
Explaining recently in a CalvinAyre article, Lovgren said that she has  become a lot more comfortable with all the live exposure she receives as an 888Poker ambassador, and that she now welcomes all the many opportunities and life experiences being sponsored by the site affords her. As she commented in the interview:
“I’ve been playing for quite some time now and I’m used to dealing with people’s expectations. I’m expected to promote 888Poker as good as I can, continue to play more poker online as well as continue to travel around, play live poker so I don’t feel any big pressure. I really enjoy it. I like it.”
At the end of this month, Lovgren will be able to showcase her skills at the biggest event of the poker calendar, the WSOP in Las Vegas. In 2015, the Swede may have only cashed in one tournament for $2,813, but she apparently made up for her lack of tournament success by cleaning up at the lucrative cash tables during the eight-week long poker extravaganza. As she explained at the time:
“The live cash games in Vegas were a true paradise for me.. A short summary would be that I won in cash games and lost in tournaments. But I also definitely won at partying!”
Good luck to Sofia Lovgren representing the world’s second biggest poker operator at the WSOP this year. 888poker is also the official sponsor of this year’s series, with Ty Stewart, the WSOP executive director, having already expressed his appreciation for the operator’s “commitment to market the game with unique offers and incentives around the biggest poker festival on the planet.”
