Lauren Kling – Poker Player Profile
Known online as locoenlacabeza on Full Tilt Poker, locaencabeza on PokerStars, and supermodl on Absolute Poker, Lauren Kling is a star in the making. Her biggest online scores include second place in the UBOC 4 Championship in January ’10 for $163K and third in Full Tilt Poker’s $1K Monday for $44K. She also final tabled PokerStars’ $80K Guarantee for $25K, capping off an impressive start to 2010.
Kling’s online prowess hasn’t exactly translated to the live arena yet, but when it inevitably does, she will be a hot sponsorship commodity. In the 2009 World Series of Poker, she cashed two events, finishing 23rd in the $1K Ladies No Limit Hold’em World Championship and 154th in a $1500 No Limit Hold’em tourney. Kling’s biggest live cash of her young career came at the 2010 L.A. Poker Classic $10K No Limit Hold’em Championship event when she finished 63rd for $23K.
Over on her College Mansion profile, Kling states that her dream job is to be the CEO of a multi-billion dollar company. All potential suitors should know that her biggest turn-off is taking life too seriously, and the three things she thinks all men should know are “poker, chivalry, and Lauren Kling”. If she won the lottery, she would travel the world with five of her closest friends. She says she’s best described as witty, outgoing, spontaneous, optimistic, and confident, and her favorite thing about herself is that she’s not afraid of a challenge. Finally, when asked about her most embarrassing moment, she claimed that she doesn’t get embarrassed.
Having recently studied Engineering and Business at Berkley, Kling is smart, beautiful, and deadly at the tables. That combination has proved rare over the last couple of years, so the sky is the limit for Lauren Kling if she plays her cards right.
