Xuan Liu (poker player)
Liu Xuan (born June 25, 1985, Tian Jin, China) is a former professional poker player whose winnings put her in the top 20 women at nearly $2 million in winnings. She is also the only woman to be at the final table at the PCA main event.
Xuan attended Waterloo University, a hotbed of live poker games, studying social development studies and political science. She played throughout her time at university, even hosting games with other known poker players such as Glen Chorny, Steve Paul and Michael McDonald.
