Although Kara Scott has been a member of the PokerStars Team pro and now represents the rival poker site PartyPoker, she is more of a TV hostess and presenter than a poker player. However, when she decides to play cards, one can be sure that Scott's gonna be tough to beat. She is one of the best among female poker players with more that $500,000 in lifetime tournament winnings. In her trophy collection Kara has two PartyPoker live tournament titles – Women's World Open which she won in 2007 and Sports Stars Challenge III scored in 2008.

However, Scott's major achievement in her poker carrier was the runner-up position in the 2009 Irish Open €3,200 No Limit Hold'em – Main Event where she scored her biggest cash prize of more than $400,000 after being defeated by Christer Johansson from Sweden. She has also finished in the money in two consecutive WSOP Main Events: in 2008 she scored 104th place for more than $40,000 and in 2009 Kara finished 238th for over $30,000 in cash.

Still, it appears that playing at the tables is Scott's secondary occupation as she is usually more involved with presenting various poker events and other TV shows. She is currently hosting World Series of Poker Europe on ESPN and High Stakes Poker on GSN as well as televised PartyPoker tournaments.

Scott began her carrier as a sports presenter for a martial arts show “Now is the Time: Night of Combat” on the Canadian TV channel Five. She then moved on producing the show. During her TV years Kara Scott hosted a number of shows and live events including the World Series of Backgammon in Monte Carlo and Cannes broadcast on Eurosport, a popular UK poker show “Poker Night Live” and “Gammon Night Live”. After a couple of years in television Kara switched to the movie business where she produced and starred in a movie “Sucker Punch”.

Now Kara can be found not only hosting poker shows, but playing the game in both live and online events. As she is currently representing PartyPoker online poker site, you can find her playing there under the screen name “KaraScott”.

And here are a few Kara Scott pics, enjoy!
