Happy birthday, Liv! Here's $65,000
It was not the November Nine, but it turned out to be a decent birthday for Liv Boeree anyway.
Fresh off her $22,648 cash in 528th place in the WSOP, Boeree moved her operation down the street to the Bellagio where the summer's last gasp of hope was playing out in the form of the Bellagio Cup.
About to start the FT of the Bellagio Cup. 10 of us left, $730k to 1st. Would be a nice birthday pressie!!! pic.twitter.com/FuW4KFFHE6— Liv Boeree (@Liv_Boeree) July 18, 2016
It would not be an easy task. The final table was a who's who of poker greats. Chance Kornuth, Connor Drinan, Adam Geyer, David Peters, Nick Schulman, Kuljinder Sidhu, Byron Kaverman, Daniel Stern, and Pratyush Buddiga rounded out the field.
In the end, Boeree did not take the cup, but did manage an 8th place finish. While clearly not the best day she could've had, the $65,000 she got for her efforts made for a decent birthday.
Congrats on a great run and good summer, Liv. And happy birthday!
