Sultry Swede Sofia Lovgren joins 888pokerApril 15, 2014 8:41 am
Just a couple of weeks after leaving her long term sponsor Team PKR, hot Swedish poker pro Sofia Lovgren has now taken up residency at her new site, 888poker. The decision to leave the innovative poker site PKR was a difficult one, especially since it was the first site where she discovered her love of poker.
Nonetheless, Sofia “welllbet” Lövgren couldn’t have found a better home than 888poker as the site consistently continues to occupy the number two spot on PokerScout’s top ranked traffic report with an average of 2,300 cash game players, behind PokerStars (21,000) but ahead of PartyPoker (1,900). Talking about her new sponsor, the 24 year old Swede, commented:
“It’s the second biggest poker site in the world. It’s a growing company listed on the stock market and showed record profit in 2013 so 888 definitely have the muscles. There are lots of tables running, lots of good tournaments and the software is top class. All reviews lately rank 888poker at the top and praise the software. Try it and you’ll like it!”
Lovgren was one of the PKR’s biggest female earners playing mid-stakes cash tables, but over the years has also diversified into tournament play. Since 2010, Lovgren has won $129,436 on the live circuit, her biggest score coming only last year when she entered the £10k High Roller EPT London, eventually finishing in 16th for a £21,540 ($34,925) pay day.
As part of her new duties, Sofia Lovgren will continue grinding mid-stakes cash online, in addition to representing 888poker at various live tournaments across the globe. As she explains: “I will play EPT, WPT and WSOP this year. In Vegas I think I’ll play around 9 WSOP events including the Main Event. There are also four 888 Live events in different destinations and I really look forward to playing poker in Australia for the first time – the WSOP Melbourne in October will be fun!”
Sofia “welllbet” Lövgren joins an eclectic mix of sponsored Ambassadors, including 2013 WSOP Main Event finalist JC Tran, cricket legend Shane Warne and former UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre.
