Biography

Xuan Liu is a Canadian professional poker player best known for her third place finish at the 2011 European Poker Tour Sanremo Main Event and finishing in fourth place at the 2012 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Main Event.

Intro

Although she's relatively new to the live tournament circuit, Xuan Liu has already proved herself as the force to be reckoned with. She has a number of World Series of Poker and European Poker Tour cashes on her record with plenty more sure to come in the future.

Background

Liu was born in 1985 in Toronto, Ontario. She started playing poker while studying CFA (Chartered Financial Analysis) in the University of Waterloo. Liu began her career playing online games on PartyPoker, and Sit'n'Go’s and small stakes Limit Hold’em at local charity casinos in Toronto. Liu first appeared on the live tournament circuit in 2007, but it wasn't until 2010 that she actually started taking things seriously.

World Series of Poker

Liu made her first WSOP money finish in 2010 when she placed 69th in the $1,000 Ladies Championship for $2,656. She came back to the World Series the next year and cashed in the Ladies event again this time collecting $2,126 for the 90th place. However, the summer of 2011 was marked by another WSOP money finish for Liu as she also finished in 279th place in the $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em event for $2,093. Still, the 2012 WSOP was the most successful for the young Canadian as she final tabled the $1,500 Seven Card Stud Hi/Lo tournament and took home $29,985 for the sixth place finish.

European Poker Tour

The European Poker Tour has been the most generous of all the live tournament circuits for Liu so far as she collected most of her poker winnings in EPT events. Her best achievement yet was the 2011 EPT Sanremo Main Event final table. Although Liu didn't win the title, she finished the tournament in third place for €360,000. Another big score came at the 2012 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure $10,000 Main Event where Liu finished fourth and took home $600,000.
