Online poker site's UK ambassador hits Vegas with Annie Duke as guide in search of first WSOP* bracelet.

Liv is a fantastic student to work with

What happens when the world's best female poker player takes an astrophysics-student-turned-poker-pro under her wings? That's what everyone in Las Vegas is waiting to find out as Annie Duke guides Liv Boeree towards her first World Series of Poker* bracelet.

"It's a huge confidence boost knowing I have the world's best poker teacher and player mentoring me," stated Liv Boeree. "Since starting tuition with Annie in March my game has improved more than I thought possible."

While Boeree only recently began her pro education, she first connected with Annie Duke on the Showdown television series in August 2005. It was the wealth of insight gained from Duke that effectively launched Boeree's poker career.

In a little over two years, Liv has amassed several top 10 finishes in Texas Hold'em tournaments across London including multiple first place wins. In February 2008, Liv caught the attention of Absolute Poker and was quickly signed by the online poker site.

The talented poker player has already proven her worth. On May 4th, Boeree finished first among a field of 53 players in the Ladbrokes European Ladies Championship, securing a coveted trophy and $30,000.

"Liv is a fantastic student to work with," says Annie Duke. "The speed with which she grasped the concepts was astonishing and, obviously, with her two recent tournament wins she has put the lessons to good use. I am eager to coach her during the series and see how far we can take this talented lady."

Live Boeree can be found playing at Absolute Poker's online poker tables. The free poker software can be downloaded from
