Xuan Liu's $1.4 million in live earnings isn't the only reason she's featured in the latest Easy Game.
The eighth and final episode of PokerListings.com's short poker documentary series is out featuring one of poker's fastest rising stars: Xuan Liu.
In this eight-minute profile we follow Liu's story beginning with her emigration from China at age five, her formative years spent obsessed with strategy games and on to her time at the University of Waterloo and the beginning of a lucrative career as a poker pro.
In just a few short years on the live tournament circuit Liu has already racked up over $1.4 million in earnings, including final tables at the PCA main event and EPT San Remo.
Featuring interviews from Liu's boyfriend Nick Binger, a successful poker pro in his own right, plus WPT champion Mike “SirWatts” Watson and Xuan's sister Anny, the final episode of Easy Game tells the story of a resourceful, independent woman making a name for herself in a male-dominated industry.
Liu's story also centers on how she's able to keep a balanced lifestyle and use her success in poker to create opportunities and help her friends and family.
