Sometimes everything falls into place. Such was the case when Team PokerStars Pro Victoria Coren Mitchell became the first two time EPT Main Event Champ. It would almost need to be scripted as to how fortuitous this was, not just for PokerStars but for poker in general. Victoria, one of the smartest, most well-spoken poker personalities in the game, saw a floodgate of press come along with her win and, who knows, maybe even a mini-poker boom as well.
In an exclusive interview with PokerStratgy she talks about when she first became buddies with her online poker sugar daddy.
Actually, I had started my PokerStars deal at EPT London. I wasn’t sure about the scale of the commitment. I wasn’t sure if I was good enough and frankly neither were they. We were at the point where I said to them, “You know what? Why don’t you put me in the EPT in London? It’s my hometown; it’s where I’m most comfortable. Why don’t you put me in that event? We’ll see how it goes.”
The first tournament I played in the PokerStars logo, I won. I think ever since then I thought PokerStars are lucky for me and maybe they think I’m lucky for them.
We’ve been a very happy team. Obviously from that point of view, it’s nice to win another one and reassure them they might be right.
Take a few moments and check out this new interview with Pokerstrategy's Barry Carter as she talks about the significance of the victory, her longtime partnership with sponsor PokerStars and how she might be responsible for a few extra people taking a seat in the game.
