Liv BoereeIn the span of a few weeks a woman has won the North American Poker Tour event at Mohegan Sun, and now the European Poker Tour San Remo event! Liv Boeree, a UB sponsored poker pro, earned her way into the PokerStars sponsored EPT San Remo event through a $500 qualifier, and now has €1.25 million to show for it, along with her first major victory.

Boeree overcame Jaob Carlsson’s massive final table chip-lead to win the title, saying, “This is exactly what I’ve been working for since I learned poker, winning a major event…”

The scientist –Boeree has a degree in Astro-Physics– turned heavy metal guitar player, turned television presenter, turned poker pro has elevated herself into the world of poker legitimacy with the win –many female poker players get sponsored more for looks than for results—joining the ranks of Vanessa Rousso, Annette Obrestad, and other accomplished female poker pros.

With 1,240 entrants the PokerStars EPT San Remo tournament bested its own record –set last year—for the largest major poker tournament in European history.

Final-Table Results:

1 – Liv Boeree — €1,250,000
2 – Jakob Carlsson — €750,000
3 – Toni Pettersson — €420,000
4 – Michael Piper — €345,000
5 – Alexey Rybin — €270,000
6 – Giuseppe Diep — €210,000
7 – Claudio Piceci — €150,000
8 – Atanas Gueorguiev — €90,000
