4/10 Poker News

Liv Boeree won the EPT- San Remo 1.25 million Euros
The event drew 1,240 players from more than 40 countries.

From the Poker News on April 22, 2010 Boeree is 25 years old, and she spent a portion of her previous career following the EPT circuit as a television presenter. She got her start in poker on a reality show in 2005, and it seems that things have now come full circle for her. During the post-game festivities, Boeree held her composure, but she was clearly holding back a lot of emotion. "This is exactly what I've been working for since I learned poker. I went to EPTs as a host but all I was thinking was, 'I want to play,'" she told PokerNews. "This is all just a big blur. I can't believe I won. I'm over the moon. Absolutely over the moon."
