Vicky Coren to Miss the WSOP

Vicky Coren to Miss the WSOP

Wednesday, 11 June 2014

She might be on form but Vicky Coren is set to miss out on this year's WSOP. Despite winning EPT San Remo and becoming the first double EPT champion, Vicky isn't planning on playing to Las Vegas this year.

Although a regular in Sin City for the past five years, Vicky has decided that a summer in the UK filled with Wimbledon, soft online fields and a normal holiday are enough for her in 2014.

In a recent blog on PokerStars she admitted that last year felt like too much of an effort and if she's to rekindle her love for the WSOP then some time away is necessary.

Moreover, her husband, David Mitchell, isn't a huge fan of just about anything the town has to offer. While he enjoys following Vicky around the European circuit, the gaudy styling and baking heat of the Las Vegas strip aren't particularly appealing to the comedy actor.

So what's next for Vicky? Well, unless she takes a trip to Barcelona it's likely she'll stay in London and wait for UKIPT and the EPT to come to her in October.

Our own Eve Goodman caught up with the EPT's first double winner. Check out the full Victoria Coren interview here.
