Vote for Lina, Just Because!

by , Feb 10, 2009 | 2:08 am

One of Pokerati’s WSOPals is up for an award: Lina Olofsson is a finalist for Scandinavian Female Poker Player of the Year in some Scandi Poker Awards from PokerStars. Honestly, though I know she had some good success at the tables last year, I don’t know much else about her play other than that she cashed in a $2k NLH at the ’08 WSOP. So here’s what they’ve got to say in PokerStars Scandiland about the poker media’s favorite Swede:

Lina placerade sig i pengarna i ett WSOP-event efter att hon även lyckats vinna två säten till WSOP Main Event till ett värde av totalt 28 000 dollar. Hon gick sedan långt i online-SM där hon kom på 22:a plats av 1788 startande. Lina kom också 4:a i Casino Cosmopols stora turnering i Göteborg, Spring Poker Week och vann 99000 kr. Hon har spelat in över 160 000 kronor på turneringar under 2008.

Right on. I couldn’t agree more. Especially the Spring Poker Week. Sweet as pie, and talented writer and photog … so we’re giving her the offiicial nod. You should, too.

    She is an absolute sweetheart. And she’s evidently a solid player as well and represented by a poker agency.

    Go Lina!!!

    Roughly translated:

    “Lina made it to the money in a WSOP event even after she managed to win two seats for the WSOP Main Event, worth $28,000. She then went deep in the Swedish Online Championships where, finishing 22nd out of 1,788 starting. Lina also came 4th in Casino Cosmopols big tournament i Gothenburg, Spring Poker Week and won Skr 99,000 (nearly $12K). Her tournament wins exceed Skr 160,000 ($19.3K).”

    Of course there are danish alternatives as well…

    Danish alternatives in terms of translation, or in terms of someone meriting a vote? I didn’t see any joxum on there!

    In terms of someone meriting a vote.

    joxum doesn’t believe in rankings, which is why he is not on there. And that is good news for some.
