As you may have heard already , Team PokerStars Pro, Liv Boeree, came incredibly close to scoring her second “major” title when she took 2nd place in the latest UKIPT Edinburgh for £59,180 this week.
To be fair, while it is a UKIPT Main Event, poker scholars would be hard pressed to call the tournament a “major.” There were only 427 runners at a very very affordable (in terms of “majors”) £1,100 buy-in. Not taking anything away from the success of the event, but even if she did take this one down it wouldn’t have been comparable to Boeree’s 2010 victory at EPT San Remo for over $1.6m. Nonetheless, congrats to Liv for landing her biggest score in over 3 years.
Perhaps congrats to all the fanboys in poker as well as it looks like Liv’s next payday will benefit just about everybody…it’s a photo shoot with FHM Magazine.
Although, to be honest, we hope that this photo shoot does not end up like her Maxim shoot where she, inexplicably, ended up on a toilet.
