Team PokerStars Joined By Liv BoereeSeptember 29, 2010 7:43 am
UK pro Liv Boeree joined Ultimate Bet in August last year but her UB logos were visibly missing during the later part of her WSOP 2010 campaign.
Now the mystery has been solved after it was announced Boeree has just been named as the newest recruit to Team PokerStars Pro.
The 26 year old beauty from Kent graduated with a degree in astrophysics before taking up the game she loves so much in 2005.
Liv’s first break in poker came after being coached to play by Phil Hellmuth, Annie Duke and the Devilfish as part of a reality TV show called “Ultimatepoker.com Showdown.”
Since then Liv Boeree has gone on to earn in excess of $1.9 million from live tournament events, including an EPT title this year at San Remo for $1.698 million.
Now a fully fledged sponsored pro at the world’s biggest poker room, Liv seemed excited at the fulfilment of a personal dream and said:
“It’s more of an honour than I can really describe. It’s something I’ve been aspiring towards ever since I learned about the world of poker, and I am over the moon to be achieving such a huge personal goal!”
“I hope to grow my game as far as possible by studying and playing as much as I can. I’ll also hopefully get to use the wonderful resource of the other Team Pros – some of the greatest poker minds in the game! Hopefully I’ll use this to produce further results and make the Team proud!”
Liv Boeree is mostly known as a No Limit Hold’em specialist, although she says she plays Pot Limit Omaha reasonably well and has now “fallen in love with Razz.”
So poker fans can now expect to see plenty more of Liv in action as she settles in to her new home at PokerStars, but in the meantime look out for her Team PokerStars pro debut at this week’s PokerStars.com European Poker Tour London which will be running from September 29th to October 4th at the Hilton Metropole Hotel.
