Liv Boeree And Her Winning Ways At PokerStarsSeptember 20, 2011 12:53 pm
During a quiet year in which she has had just two live tournament cashes for $6,697, Liv Boeree has been making her presence felt in the online arena, instead.
After the UK beauty graduated with a first class degree in physics with astrophysics, she then started playing poker in 2005.
Since her first live cash in 2008, the 27 year-old UK pro has now gone on earn an impressive $2,114,249 playing live tournaments, including a win at the 2010 EPT San Remo for $1,793,143.
A few months later in September, 2010, Liv was named as the latest recruit to Team PokerStars Pro and this year she enjoyed her first World Series Of Poker in Las Vegas representing PokerStars. I say enjoyed but in actual fact, as Liv put it:
“I’ve just come off the back of my worst WSOP (or any tournament series) ever, and so I’m definitely at a low point as far as game confidence. It’s been tough sitting down, excited and refreshed to a new $1,500 event each day, only to get into a big coin-flip showdown situation with Q-Q versus A-K, etc, lose the flip and not even get above starting stack.”
Online, however, things have run a lot better for Liv Boeree of late and the Kent beauty has now amassed $292,948 playing at her sponsored site PokerStars.
Back in February this year, Liv beat a 4,710 strong field at the $215 Sunday Warm-Up to collect her biggest online score to date of $147,780. A few days later she then beat another 799 players at the $109 NLHE for $14,981.
Since then Liv has had several six-figure scores and this month has already earned around $65,000, including victory against 2,528 other player at the $109 WCOOP second chance event for $40,448.
It seems that the stars continue to align perfectly for the talented Team PokerStars Pro, and Liv will now be hoping to add further accolades to her impressive results
come October 7th and the WSOP Europe in Cannes, France.
