Originally from Kent in England, Liv Boeree is one of the most successful female poker players of all time, with over $2,000,000 in live tournament earnings. She previously studied at the University of Manchester, achieving a first-class degree in Astrophysics, before going on to find fame as a model and TV presenter on a range of different shows.
Liv first caught the poker bug when she was picked to take part in a reality poker TV show in the UK back in 2005. Soon after she became a regular host on various poker coverage shows, and it wasn’t long before she was making waves at the table herself. Liv’s first major live cash came when she won the European Ladies Championship in 2008 for $42,000, followed by a string of other impressive money finishes at events around the world. Highlights included an impressive run at the 2009 Five Star World Poker Classic in Las Vegas, where she final tabled two side tournaments and made a top 40 finish in the $25,000 WPT Championship Main Event. Then came the moment that would change Liv’s life forever, and make the poker world give her the credit her game deserves. Liv travelled to Italy to play at the European Poker Tour (EPT) Season 6 Sanremo event in 2010 - a tournament that proved to be one of the biggest ever, with a packed field of 1,240 runners. After days of intense action, Liv found herself on the final table, and duly went on to crush the remaining players to take the title and a massive $1,698,300 payday. It was one of the best performances ever witnessed on the EPT, and confirmed Liv’s status as one of the finest players the UK has ever produced. Proving she is also a force to be reckoned with online, Liv then took down the PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up in 2011, besting a huge field of 4,710 for prize money of $147,780. Further live tournament success came in early 2014, when Liv came close to winning a UKIPT title in Edinburgh, busting as runner-up for $97,058.
With the determination to succeed at anything she puts her mind to, Liv looks destined to be one of the biggest stars the poker world has ever seen, and will no doubt be adding to her growing list of major titles soon. Away from poker, Liv is a huge fan of music, and likes to chill out by playing her guitar. She is a member of Team PokerStars Pro and you can find her playing online using the screen name ‘Liv Boeree’ on the PokerStars global site, and as ‘LivBoeree.fr’ on the French license site.
