Biography

Liv Boeree is a former British poker player and former PokerStars Ambassador. Over the course of her career, she cashed for over $3.8 million and won both a European Poker Tour title and a World Series of Poker bracelet — the only female player in poker history to achieve such a feat.

Away from poker, she has a degree in Astrophysics from the University of Manchester. She is in a long-term relationship with fellow former poker player Igor Kurganov.

Biography

Liv Boeree was born in 1984 in Kent, England. Boeree first entered the poker scene in 2005 when she was chosen for a poker reality TV show in Britain along with four other contestants. The show also featured some of the best-known poker pros such as Phil Hellmuth, Annie Duke, and Dave 'Devilfish' Ulliott who trained the five poker rookies and helped them take their first steps in the world of poker.

Boeree's TV debut opened her new paths in both show business and poker – in 2006 she took the job as a journalist and a TV presenter for Gutshot TV covering the 37th annual World Series of Poker. She then joined the Challenge TV to work as an internet reporter for the European Poker Tour and covered WSOP Europe events for the official WSOP.com website.

Boeree at the WSOP

Boeree has a total of 25 WSOP cashes on her record. In 2017, she won the $10,000 Tag Team event with her boyfriend Igor Kurganov for $136,982 each.

Boeree on the European Poker Tour

The biggest success at the tables came to Boeree in Italy in 2010 when she outplayed the outstanding field of 1,240 players at the European Poker Tour Sanremo Main Event taking home a whopping cash prize of €1,250,000 along with the shiny EPT trophy. This victory put Boeree among the most successful female players and made her one of the most popular poker stars in the world. The year 2010 continued on a high note for Boeree as she finished second in a £2,000 No-Limit Hold'em event in her home country's EPT London for more than £50,000.


Fun Fact: In 2018, Boeree hosted a TED Talk where she explored the ways one can use probabilities to improve everyday decision making.


Other Poker Achievements

Boeree won her first major tournament in 2008 by taking down the European Ladies Championship title collecting $42,000 in first-place prize money. Her other memorable finishes include winning a Poker After Dark heat in 2017 for $150,000 and winning a tiny little £50 event at the UKIPT in 2010 for £1,475.

Boeree signed her first sponsorship deal with an online poker site in 2008 when she joined Absolute Poker and represented the site for more than a year. In August 2009, she switched her badge and joined the Ultimate Bet Poker Team Pro.

In August 2011, Boeree left UltimateBet as the site could not recover from the events following the Black Friday and seized its existence. Just a month later Boeree signed a deal with the industry's leading poker site PokerStars and joined its Team Pro. She quit PokerStars in 2019.
