Victoria Mitchell Coren has made poker history by becoming the first poker player to win two European Poker Tour titles. Vicky Coren won the EPT San Remo Main Event on Easter Sunday, bagging a total of €476,100, the equivalent to about $660,000, for her victory and beating out over 550 competitors in the process who each paid €4,900 to take part.
This win brings her total lifetime poker tournament winnings to just under $2.5 million. This total puts her into the Top 10 all-time list for female poker players.
Back in September 2006, Vicky Cohen burst onto the poker scene by taking down a £500,000 prize for winning the European Poker Tour’s Main Event in London. She made history back then, by becoming the first female winning of a European Poker Tour Event.
Vicky Coren is now a well-known player on the poker scene, as a member of Team PokerStars Pro.
She was absolutely elated with her win, tweeting "I WON! I bloody WON!!!!!!" after taking the title. She then added, "Sorry for that language on Easter Sunday. But I WON!!!!!! That is at least partly thanks to the amazing support, God bless everyone."
Congratulations to Vicky Coren on making poker history with another big win at the poker felt.
