EPT San Remo Main Event 2010 Won By Liv Boeree

Poker pro Liv Boeree has won the EPT San Remo Main Event, after defeating a field of 1,239 players to take down the title and the €1,250,000 first place prize.
After her impressive victory at the €5,300 PokerStars San Remo event in Italy and biggest pay-day to date, a clearly delighted Boeree said:
“I don’t want to cry because that’s not professional but I can’t believe that I’ve won this. This is incredible. Everyone today played so good. It’s exactly what I’ve been working towards when I started playing poker four years ago; to win a major tournament. I just didn’t think it’d come so quickly.”
The 25-year-old Ultimate Bet pro’s first break in poker came in 2005 after  being picked on the reality TV show “Ultimatepoker.com Showdown”, to be coached by poker legends Phil Hellmuth and Annie Duke. She has since gone on to cash at several live tournament and with her latest win now has career earnings in excess of $1.9 million.
As the last eight players took their seats at the final table in San Remo, Liv Boeree was fifth in chips with Jakob Carlsson from Sweden way out in front as the chip leader.
However, by the time she knocked Toni Pettersson out in third, she went into the heads-up phase of the competition against Carlsson holding a 23,215,000 to 13,965,000 chip advantage.
The heads-up battle lasted around two and a half hours, albeit with a one hour dinner break included, but the final hand occurred after Boeree was dealt pocket 5’s to Carlsson’s Ah-6d. From the button Boeree raised to 700,000 and then called the Swede’s all-in bet. With the board running out Ks 10d 8s 7s Jc, Carlsson had to be content with his runner-up position worth €750,000, while Boeree collected the title €1,250,000 prize money and a seat to the EPT Grand Final in Monte Carlo on Sunday, April 25.
Commenting on her most successful tournament result to date the poker pro, commentator and model, said:
“Winning a major event is exactly what I’ve been working towards. I went round to all the EPTs as a host but all I was thinking was: ‘I want to play.’ I have been working very hard on my game but I can’t believe I have won. I’m over the moon, absolutely over the moon.”
