Team 888poker has gotten even stronger with the addition of two new members, Canada’s Xuan Liu and Sofia Lӧvgren from Sweden.
Hailing from Toronto, Xuan Liu is a regular on the poker tournament circuit, with over $1.4 million in live event cashes to her name. Her results at major events are impressive, including a $600,000 4th place finish at the PCA in 2012, and 3rd place at the EPT San Remo 2011 for $524,075. Xuan took home her first tournament title and trophy at the IPT San Remo the previous year.
Xuan’s passion for poker began at a young age and evolved into a lucrative pastime during her time at University. Whilst studying for her post-graduate degree in Finance, Xuan travelled to Europe where she experienced her first NLH Tournament final table. After that Xuan decided to become a full time professional. In 2013, she was declared as one of the WPT Season XI’s ‘Ones to Watch’.
Sofia Lövgren is a professional poker player based in Malta and Gothenburg. Her major focus is on online cash games, but over the years she’s also achieved a strong live tournament record which has included four WSOP cashes and deep runs in the Irish Open, EPT San Remo and EPT London High Roller. Her live tournament earnings are more than $130,000.
A talented writer, Sofia has her own blog and is a regular article contributor in national newspapers and European poker magazines. She’s also extremely active in the world of social media. A 2013 Poker Listings ‘Spirit of Poker – Here Comes the Future Award’ nominee, Sofia has now taken the next exciting step in the poker career, signing as an 888 Ambassador.
888poker is extremely proud and excited to welcome both women to the team. They join an already strong roster of female players including Australia Poker Hall of Famer & WSOPE Bracelet winner Jackie Glazier, and American cash game specialist, Jessica Dawley.
