Each year, thousands of British people permanently move to the United States, while even more people spend some time there as part of jobs, hitting the air miles while cutting across the Atlantic ocean or being casual residents and still naming the United Kingdom as their home.
Olivia Boeree might still be a London resident, but she spends two of three months a year on average living out of a suitcase in the United States. And her job might come as a surprise to some people – she is a professional poker player.
She told that she spend each summer in Las Vegas, but she has also spent a lot of time in Los Angeles, she has also been to all corners of the United States quite a few times and she is familiar with most of it—there are just a few States she has not yet visited. She really believes that the United States is her second home.
Olivia Boeree is actually from Maidstone in Kent, UK. The twenty nine year old went to the United States in the year 2006 for the WSOP in Las Vegas. She told that she was very new to the game and she did not really play much poker; therefore, it was more of a vacation. She, however, got to meet a lot of her poker heroes and it gave her even more of a drive to become as successful and famous in the poker world as she could. She wanted to be at the top of the game like they were.
