While she may not be a fixture on the circuit, Elena Stover is a well practiced avid poker player/grinder that had the opportunity to join her boyfriend, PokerStars Team Online member Mickey Petersen, at the 2014 PCA. In her trip report for the PokerStars Blog, Stover, who goes by @thegroupie online, discusses forgoing the temptations of things like watersides and the beach for some good old fashioned online poker grinding.
After clipping a sweet online score and meeting a couple of her poker idols, she turned her attention to the Ladies’ Event where she was determined on making a deep run. Quite a fun read for those who are hoping one day to make the trip to the Atlantis and possibly make a score of your own.
The final table was the toughest I have ever faced at a ladies event – or at any live event, for that matter. There were several accomplished pros in the mix, including Fatima de Melo, Amanda Musumeci, and Loni Harwood, and I was proud that I could hold my own among this talented group.
So take a moment and check out TheGroupie’s blog and as bonus coverage, watch the poker story of her boyfriend Petersen and see that good things can happen in online packages.
