POKER queen Sofia Lovgren is on a mission - to see a female player WIN the amazing 888poker-sponsored World Series of Poker Main Event in Las Vegas.

The 27-year-old stunner is a professional poker player from Sweden and an 888poker Ambassador since 2014.  She is looking forward to taking part in the biggest and most prestigious Texas Hold 'Em tournament in the poker calendar.

Sofia is an ace at playing online poker and that's where she first came to the attention of the poker chiefs at 888poker.

She has played the game for ten years and professionally for the last seven. Her biggest success is playing online cash games, but she has now started to play more live tournaments around the world and having considerable success with total live tournament winnings of more than £250,000.

"I'm living my dream, doing what I love, and most of all, playing poker and travelling the world. I am fortunate and grateful that my absolute favourite hobby is also my work,”  said Sofia, who talked exclusively to me when she jetted into London to play at the 888poker Card Room at Aspers Casino in Westfield, Stratford.

Now, Sofia has her sights firmly set on this year's 888poker sponsored World Series of Poker Main Event with its mouth-watering multi-million first prize.
