A 24-year-old from Sao Paulo, Saliba is the youngest female to enter the World Series of Poker (WSOP) Main Event this year. WSOP is the Olympics of the poker world and it’s certainly quite an achievement for someone so young to qualify for the Main Event. She started playing poker at the tender age of 17 when her father took her to a club in Sao Paulo and the then teenager immediately fell in love with the social aspects of the game. She certainly shows strong talent right from the get go when she cashed in on her first poker tournament. She turned pro at age 22 and currently stands at a whopping $173,360 in live tournament winnings.
