PokerStars Picks Up Liv Boeree
2010 EPT San Remo winner Liv Boeree has found a new home at the world’s largest online poker room.
Boeree was officially announced as a member of Team PokerStars Pro at the launch of the EPT London festival this week.
The 26-year-old will join poker superstars like Daniel Negreanu, Chris Moneymaker and Vanessa Rousso in representing the brand around the world.
“It’s what I’ve been working towards for the last five years,” said Boeree.
“When I decided I wanted to become a pro poker player I wanted to become as well-known and successful as I could be. One of my goals was to become a member of Team PokerStars Pro – and now I’ve done it.”
Before getting into poker Boeree studied physics and astrophysics at the University of Manchester before moving to London.
Since then Boeree has taken the poker world by storm, initially working as a TV presenter and journalist for various poker media outlets.
Boeree started to raise eyebrows as a player when she won the Ladbrokes Ladies Championship for $42,000 in 2008.
After winning that event Boeree was able to put together a string of wins at the WSOP but it was in 2010 that she would score he first major tournament win.
Boeree outlasted 1,239 players to win EPT San Remo and take down a first-place prize of $1.6 million. She joined fellow Brit Vicky Coren and German Sandra Naujoks as the only women with EPT titles.
“Liv is the whole package,” said Daniel Negreanu.
“She has a great résumé after winning EPT San Remo, is likeable, well spoken, attractive and hard-working. There is no question she was the top free agent and I’m ecstatic that she is now part of the team.”
