Team PKR Joined By Glamorous Young Poker Pro Sofia LövgrenMarch 30, 2010 8:10 am
The 3-D online poker site PKR has announced the addition of their first female player to Team PKR Pro, in the guise of stunning 20 year old poker pro Sofia ‘wellbet’ Lovgren from Gothenburg, Sweden.
A few days ago, PKR would only reveal that the new recruit to their now ten strong member team had “been chosen from the site’s growing group of online pros, and will add further weight to a team bursting with cash game prowess and big hopes for further major tournament glory.”
However, PKR have now confirmed that online cash game pro Sofia ‘wellbet’ Lovgren is their latest deserved member, who has earned a name for herself by becoming one of the site’s biggest female earners playing mid-stakes full ring tables games.
Commenting on her new appointment, Sofia Lövgren said: “It’s a pleasure to be the first female on the Team and it will be sick fun to join the guys. It’s a very good opportunity for me to get to play big live tournaments and take my online game to the live scene. Playing poker and travelling are my favourite things, so this will be a great experience.”
Poker fans can now look forward to seeing Sofia playing live at the $4,700 buy-in Irish Poker Open this week, as part of her Team PKR duties. She will also be joined by fellow PKR teamates, including Ray ‘callmebabe’ O’Mahoney, Henrik ‘Pokey85’ Eklund and Karl ‘discomonkey’ Fenton.
Talking about her goals for the future, Sofia said: “For my online poker I have a clear goal – to double my cash game bankroll this year. You will see me grinding at the tables, feeding on the fish…Like many others I dream of winning a major tournament. It’s also a goal of mine to make enough money to buy a big house someplace like Vegas, where I can throw big parties. Robert Pattinson would definitely get an invite. Is Prince William into poker players? I’d invite him too!”
We wish Sofia all the best in attaining her future goals at the innovative poker site.
