Mimi Luu is a 2Pair Magazine Team Pro and her brief bio introduces her as "one of Northern California’s top female poker players". She was born in Saigon, Vietnam and lives in San Jose, CA. She is known for a lot of table talk and has a friendly, exuberant personality. Mimi herself says she has 'a big heart' and 'simply loves people'.
Yet she is mainly famous in the poker community as Mimi 'Can't Fold This' Luu after an episode of tanking with pocket kings last summer. Faced with a preflop all-in, she takes a very long time and does all her thinking and emotional preparation for the decision aloud, sharing and spreading her own agony to the rest of the table and the on-watchers, all while repeating 'can't fold this, can't fold this'.
The video of this episode has got 35,000 views on youtube, and made number one on +Bluff Magazine top 10 videos list for 2013. There is a very funny remix (another 20,000 views) that I couldn't recommend more to everyone who endures more than 2 minutes of the original:
The WPT action starts at 12:00 noon PT and will be live-streamed on www.WPT.com. Meanwhile you can check out Mimi Luu's featured moments on WPT Live Updates. Her fans wish her luck and will also expect some very special and elaborate nail art at the final table!
