Liv Boeree will Host Poker in the Park

Former Ultimate Bet player and rising female poker star Liv Boeree has been tabbed as the host of the fourth annual Poker in the Park event.  Boeree, who also represented Absolute Poker and their 30% rakeback deals, is a former model who became the third female to win a European Poker Tour event after she captured the EPT San Remo title; she also won over €1.25 million for the victory.  After winning EPT San Remo and having her name plastered in poker news headlines everywhere, Boeree will now have the opportunity to open Poker in the Park.

If you haven’t heard about Poker in the Park, it is Europe’s largest free poker festival, and it’s held in London’s Leicester Square.  Poker in the Park offers lots of different events including 40-person sit and go poker games, a chance to play 5-time boxing Heavyweight Champion Evander Holyfield in heads-up holdem poker, lectures from top poker players such as Dave Ulliott, Neil Channing, Phil Laak, and Roland De Wolfe, and sessions where you play poker with pros providing poker tips in the middle of the action.

As if this isn’t enough, there will also be opportunities to enter huge poker tournaments absolutely free, models from NUTS Magazine handing out prizes, free merchandise such as poker chips and t-shirts, and a dunk tank where the losing poker player’s dunk tank model goes for a swim.

Last year’s Poker in the Park event attracted over 20,000 people, and this year’s festival is expected to draw even more!  Normally you only see numbers like this in huge online poker tournaments so you know the 2010 Poker in the Park extravaganza will be huge.  And what’s amazing is that this festival can’t even offer rakeback money to the attendees so it must be really special if so many people are attending.
