Above: Liv Boeree says her sexy body distracts other poker players
HOT poker babe Liv Boeree has claimed her sizzling body distracts male opponents.
The 26-year-old, who is currently playing at the European Poker Tour (EPT) London, already boasts career winnings of nearly £1.3million.
And now she is hoping to pocket more big wins - with a little help from her physique.
She said: "I have a young online player's style, I play loose, aggressive poker, but in a female body and it can be quite disarming.
"People definitely underestimate me at the poker table, which is an advantage.
"They see this young attractive girl and think I'm just in tournaments because of the way I look. That's a huge benefit.
"I'm always trying to work out which players think I'm no good, which players are scared of me because of my results and which players are trying to flirt with me.
"If you can identify who thinks what, you can adapt your play."
Liv, who has an astrophysics degree, beat 1,200 players to win the EPT San Remo in Italy earlier this year.
And the Kent-born beauty recently signed a megabucks deal with PokerStars.
She told the Daily Star: "It sounds corny, but as soon as I became a poker pro I knew I wanted to sign for them.
"It's just so exciting to be on PokerStars Team PRO with all these other great players.
"There's a lot of pressure on me now, but I'm used to that. When you're in the public eye people always expect you to do well.
"I'm just going to keep working on my game.
"I'm a much better player now than I was six months ago and I hope to be a much better player in six months time than I am now."
