There, she was introduced to poker after being selected to appear on a T.V. show called Showdown. Throughout the show she received coaching from poker pros Phil Hellmuth and Annie Duke and, from then on, she was completely hooked.

Later that year, she went on to pick up the first of her two World Series of Poker wins, making the money in $1K and $1.5K No Limit Hold’em poker events. Following her run of success, Liv was signed up to be a sponsored professional. In 2010, Liv won the €5,000 European Poker Tour San Remo Main Event for $1.7 million. In addition to the massive first place prize, Liv became the third woman to ever win an EPT championship. The final table included players like Sweden’s Jakob Carlsson, who lost the heads-up battle, and Toni Pettersson, who finished third.

Liv has recently posted, “It is a well- known fact that some poker players travel almost non-stop on the poker circuit, jetting off to exotic locations and visiting some of the many wonders of the world in the process. I count myself very fortunate to be able to join that group and live that lifestyle, and it’s something I regularly pinch myself as a reminder to be grateful for.”
