Nancy Birnbaum may be no stranger to poker, but she is to the European Poker Tour!

Known to many simply as "Trouble," the poker pro originally from Florida is playing in her first-ever EPT Main Event here on Day 1b. Birnbaum and a friend opted to take a break from the American circuit for their first European poker foray, and immediately it paid off as last night she finished 22nd out of 748 players in the Eureka Poker Tour High Roller for a nice payday.

While Birnbaum, who is also a member of Team Blue Shark Optics, may be new to the EPT, she has a long list of poker cashes dating all the way back to 2006. Her best cash was for $51,269 for winning the 2009 World Series of Poker Circuit New Orleans Event #3: $500 No-Limit Hold'em, which was also the first of her three WSOP Circuit gold rings.

Other highlights on her poker résumé include sixth in the 2014 WSOP Circuit Caesars Palace Main Event for $41,642, third in the 2015 Isle Classic Event #1: $350 No-Limit Hold'em for $28,776, and 15th in the 2013 World Poker Tour Seminole Hard Rock Showdown for $22,927.

PokerNews will be sure to keep an eye on Birnbaum to see how she fares in her first-ever EPT Main Event!
