Liz Lieu Joins International Stadiums Poker Tour

Liz Lieu Joins International Stadiums Poker Tour Liz Lieu has now become the latest pro to join the International Stadiums Poker Tour (ISPT) and will help promote the Wembley mega-tournament alongside Michael “The Grinder” Mizrachi and Sam Trickett ahead of its May 31st, 2013 start date.
The revolutionary new ISPT is the brain-child of Bernard Tapie, who intends to hire out famous stadiums from around the world and organize the biggest live poker tournaments ever seen. The inaugural Wembley event will cost €600 to enter with one rebuy and a double add-on available. It is also expected to attract around 30,000 competitors, who will play online from their seats before Day 3 will then see 3,000 players advance to the live format.
Vietnamese born Liz Lieu, 37, is a well-known US pro and despite being predominantly a cash game player has earned an impressive $818,721 playing live tournaments. The Californian resident is also a big personality of the game and in 2009 she appeared as herself in the Hong Kong comedy film Poker King. Looking forward to her new deal representing the International Stadiums Poker Tour, Liz Lieu said:
“ISPT is pioneering the world of poker in a bold and creative way. This event will create a lot of positive attention for this game. I am very excited by the concept and I’m sure that ISPT will be remembered in poker history. My role will be to act as an ambassador of the tournament and share my opinion on this event. I not only want players to know about the historic nature of the event, I want them to see that it’s going to be a tremendous amount of fun.”
So far, 3,300 players have registered to join the inaugural event at Wembley Stadium and as well as the €600 buy-in route, satellites are also running online for as little as €6.
