On Wednesday, Canadian poker player Xuan Liu announced on her Twitter account that she will no longer be an ambassador for 888poker.
Very grateful to have been given the opportunity for a year but will no longer be an @888poker ambassador.Follow @xxl23
While it is uncertain what Liu's long-term plans are, we do know what she plans on doing for Valentine's Day. Part of the remaining 36 players in the Australia New Zealand Poker Tour (ANZPT) Perth Main Event Day 3 with 143,000 chips, Liu will spend her February 14th attempting to add to her $1.5 million in live tournament cashes.
Liu joined forces with 888poker at the same time fellow female poker pro Sofia Lӧvgren began her ambassadorship. Lövgren also took to Twitter to express her disappointment in seeing Liu go and wishing her the best of luck.

Jackie Glazier, who teamed up with 888poker after leaving Ivey Poker in June 2013, also wished her former colleague the best in 2015.

Fellow Canadian Kara Scott, who recently departed partypoker after serving as one of the poker site's pros for five years, also shared her camaraderie with Liu.
