A big congratulations to Liv Boeree, a poker player, model, guitarist and TV presenter from UK, who took home the Main Event of EPT San Remo yesterday. I must say that I'm very, very impressed how good she played at the final table. She had been quite anonymous until the final table started (probably for a reason?), but then she showed the guys her poker skills! It came to be Jacob Carlsson, who had a big chip lead in the beginning of the day, and Boeree who were the last 2 "men" standing.
Even though Jacob had such a big lead in the beginning of the day, it was Liv Boeree who had the big chip lead when they started playing heads up. Liv continued playing fantastic poker throughout the heads up and she ended it all with a great read on the swede.
Boeree raised to 700,000 from the button and Jakob pushed all in almost straight away.
"How much more please?" Boeree asked with a tone on her voice like she intended to call. 6,350,000 was the answer. After a few seconds of thinking, she made the call.
Carlsson shows A 6 and Boeree flips over 55
Liv Boeree takes home the first prize of €1,250,000 and also wins a historic tournament - the biggest EPT ever held in Europe. A big congratulations to her (once again).
