After making a name for herself in the summer of 2017, Brazil’s Vivian “Vivi” Saliba was welcomed to the 888poker team. That year, the 24-year-old became the youngest female to enter the World Series of Poker Main Event.
Saliba first learned poker at the age of 12 playing on a family trip. Six years later, her dad took her to a Brazilian card club and she was attracted to the social aspects of the game. Five years after that, Sailba turned pro with a focus on her favorite game, pot-limit Omaha.
Saliba finished fourth in the 2019 WSOP Crazy Eights tournament for a career-best $308,888.
