Louise Butler has joined the Team partypoker stable as an Online Pro and as a representative of partypoker Ladies. Hailing from Galway, Ireland, Butler is predominately an online player who plays both no-limit hold’em and pot-limit Omaha cash games, multi-table tournaments and sit ‘n’ go tournaments.
According to the new look partypoker blog, Butler has amassed more than $305,000 in online poker tournaments and is the top-ranked female poker player from Ireland when using the PocketFives.com ranking system.
Butler, who plays at partypoker under the alias “lou045,” has 3,097 cashes online with 358 of those being top three finishes and 157 of those ending with Butler being the last woman standing.
The Irish star’s largest online score came in October 2017 when she won the Big $11 at PokerStars for $6,282 and she also has a recent $4,448 score that she was awarded for winning the $25K Gtd Contender on partypoker, outlasting 1,509 opponents in August 2017.
In the live arena, Butler cashed in the 2017 partypoker LIVE Grand Prix Killarney Main Event in September 2017 and finished fourth in the Irish Ladies Championship at the same festival a few days later.
Butler is now hoping for a big score at the 2017 partypoker LIVE Caribbean Poker Party, which kicks off on Nov. 17. After winning a $12,000 package for a $109 outlay in the final round of satellites, Butler now has possession of a $1,100 MILLIONS Open and a $5,300 MILLIONS Main Event buy-in so will be playing for a share of a combined $6 million in Punta Cana.
