Young Glamorous Lauren Kling Is Poker's Hottest New Female StarSeptember 22, 2010 10:47 am
A name becoming ever more familiar on the poker circuit these days belongs to the super-hot blonde bombshell known as Lauren Kling.
The 23 year-old poker pro graduated in engineering and business from Berkely College a year ago and is currently devoting her time to playing the game she has been most successful at since she started playing aged just 18.
Discussing how she first started improving at the game, Lauren explains:
“I read a lot of books and played online as much as possible to get experience. I’ve always looked up to Vanessa Rousso. She’s a smart female in the industry who has been very successful.”
As is often the case, Lauren gained much recent exposure after cashing in at the 2010 WSOP Main Event for $24,079 to take her life time live tournament earnings to $91,000.
However, it is online where Lauren Kling has really been plying her trade and is currently showing a tremendous profit over just two years of play.
Playing as ‘supermodl’ on her Absolute Poker account, Lauren is presently showing a profit of $221,554. Her results are also mirrored at the world’s two biggest poker sites, where she is known as ‘locoenlacabeza’ and has earned $279,758 at Full Tilt Poker and $149,403 at PokerStars for an impressive overall online profit of $651,932.
Lauren’s biggest cash to date came on Jan 31st, 2010 when she won $163,244 on Absolute Poker, after she finished in 2nd place out of a field of 1,307 players at the $1kbuy-in UBOC $1M Championship NLH.
She is also showing an average cash of $1,646 over 396 cashes on online tournaments.
Lauren Kling currently resides in Las Vegas and when asked what a typical night out on the town would involve, she replied:
“Honestly, I rarely go out. I am usually playing online. I’m a dork (laughs).”
She also said the players who would give her the most satisfaction busting from a tournament would be either Phil Ivey, or Tom Dwan. It’s not difficult to imagine how they might find themselves distracted while playing a hand against the gorgeous Lauren Kling.
I’m sure there will be no end of poker fans wishing Lauren all the best for the future.
