Liv Boeree wins PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up for $147,000

Monday, 7 February 2011

The PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up attracted the usual strong field of pros and amateurs last night with 4,710 players putting up $215 to compete in the $750,000 guaranteed tournament. The tournament attracted enough players to bust the guarantee and take the prize pool to nearly a million dollars.

With less than six tables remaining in contention and well into the money, we found ourselves with Daniel Negreanu; Liv Boeree; Pieter der Korver still alive in the event and guaranteed a payday of at least $2,000. Boeree was the only one to make it to the final table and arrived with a middling stack.

She won an all-in confrontation before the flop holding A-Q to K-K and then doubled up her new stack by winning a better-than-coinflip with 6-6 versus A-4. She wound up heads-up against SCOOP double-wnner James “” Mackey with a 3-1 deficit before doubling through with Q-9 against K-J, catching top pair on the flop.

Finally, committed all his chips and Boeree, covering, made the call. She found herself in good shape with 7-7 against A-6 and held up on a blank board to take down the top prize in her first tournament win as a PokerStars Pro.

The full final table payouts were as follows:
1. Team PokerStars Pro Liv Boeree $147,780.96
2. James "" Mackey $109,743.00
3. Aduobe4 $77,715.00
4. Bjoerni89 $53,223.00
