The new Global Poker League (GPL) franchise leaders will name their two wild card selections on April 5th. Final rosters will include a manager and 6 players. Schedules should be released sometime following those selections.
Poker has long been a game for everyone, men and women alike. In the poker world females may be outnumbered by males, but certainly not outmatched.
All the GPL teams are led by top-notch poker professionals, and it should come as no surprise that three of those leaders are female.
Liv Boeree of the United Kingdom will lead the London Royals. Liv has nearly $3 million in live tournament earnings. In 2010, she won the European Poker Tour (EPT) main event good for $1,698,300. Liv has put together a strong foursome thus far, and with her 2nd round pick she selected American pro Vanessa Selbst.
California native, Maria Ho will manage the Los Angeles Sunset. Maria has nearly $2 million in live tournament earnings, and recently finished 6th at the World Poker Tour (WPT) Bay 101 Shooting Star Championship cashing for $179,930.
The strong influence of these women and others throughout the poker community, can only help strengthen and grow the game worldwide.
