Liv Boeree, professional poker player and Absolute Poker ambassador, looks to conquer Poker News Cup atop the mountains of Austria
Miami, FLÃ‚Â March 18, 2009 Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Absolute PokerÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Liv Boeree is getting ready to conquer the poker tables and the ski slopes, all in one shot. The online poker pro is heading to the 5-star Hotel Alpine Palace, located atop the majestic mountains of Austria, for the 2009 PokerNews Cup Alpine.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“I am so excited to be going to the PokerNews Cup to represent Absolute Poker,Ã¢â‚¬Â stated Liv Boeree. Ã¢â‚¬Å“A week of skiing and poker in the Austrian Alps? What more could I ever want?Ã¢â‚¬Â
While Boeree dismisses the prospect of winning the tournament as a reason for playing in the event, with a number of recent wins under her belt the Absolute Poker ambassador looks to be a major contender in the Austrian tournament. Most recently, Boeree made the final table in Event #7 of the 2009 Aussie Millions poker series. Her 7th place finish among a field of 449 players netted the poker pro $18,900 AUD (about $13,000 USD).
In a little over two years, Liv Boeree has secured multiple top-10 finishes in a number of first place wins in Texas Hold’em tournaments across London. In May 2008, Boeree claimed the top spot in the Ladbrokes European Ladies Championship, besting a field of 53 players for $30,000 in cash and positioning herself as a top female poker player.
Boeree wonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t be the only Absolute Poker player attending the first-class poker tournament. The online poker site recently ran satellites guaranteeing a number of $8,000 PokerNews Cup prize packages. Qualifiers for the Super Satellite started at just $10+1, a small price that attracted a large mix of players.
The 2009 PokerNews Cup Alpine tournament poker series gets underway on March 21, 2009.
