One of the hardest-working students from the Upswing Poker Lab community just scored a six-figure tournament win against the world’s toughest competition.
Victoria Livschitz won the $10,000 buy-in Aria High Roller #13 on July 8, cashing for $162,790 in the process. The win marked a new high for Livschitz, who began venturing into the world of live high stakes multi-table tournaments late last year.
The high-roller tournament circuit features a lineup of regulars that includes the world’s top players. The Aria High Roller #13 drew 68 entries, and the ten players finishing in the cash included names like Justin Bonomo, poker’s all-time money leader with $57.5 million in cashes and counting.
Bonomo finished third in the High Roller, while accomplished pro David Coleman finished second. Other top players finishing in the money included Rainer Kempe and Ole Schemion.
Upswing Poker Study Pays Off Big
Names like Bonomo, Kempe, and Schemion frequently show up in the money at the end of high-roller events. The top spot on the money ladder, however, went to a player that only began studying multi-table tournaments at Upswing Poker within the last year.
Livschitz shared the news of the big win with the Upswing Poker Engage community, a Facebook group that allows Upswing Lab subscribers to post hands, ask questions, and, in Livschitz’s case, share career-high tournament finishes.
“This has been an amazing week. Just playing these legends is a dream,” Livschitz wrote in the Engage Group. “Given that I started to study MTT at Upswing less than a year ago with Doug Polk and Nick (Petrangelo’s) courses, I am sharing with the community to show that hard work and study pays off. And of course, to thank the coaches.”
Livschitz’s short time on the high roller circuit already includes a pair of high-stakes tournament wins. Her first title came in May, with a victory in the PokerGO Tour Venetian High Roller #7 for $60,000.
Livschitz added the Aria High Roller #13 to her collection of wins on July 8, then followed with a 4th-place run in the $10,000 buy-in Aria High Roller #17 on July 13. Her career tournament earnings now stand at $371,564, and that total appears to be on the rise.
The Upswing Poker Lab includes a wealth of materials on multi-table tournaments. The Lab’s MTT curriculum features coaching from proven tournament crushers like Polk, Hristivoje “AllinPav” Pavlovic, Moritz Dietrich, and other world-class coaches.
Nick Petrangelo, a regular on the high-roller circuit with more than $24 million in career earnings, also teaches a pair of standalone courses featuring advanced tournament strategy. Petrangelo’s Winning Poker Tournaments and High Stakes MTT Sessions courses offer some of the highest-level multi-table tournament coaching materials available anywhere.
