All the poker babes

Posted by gambler101 on Jul 6, 2010 in online poker

What is happening with all the online poker rooms signing up pin ups or even porn stars? Is it the sign that the end is near?

In onlinevideopoker it is understandable that attractive women be used to attract attention. But what about poker pros and online poker?

Ok, there are a few legitimate poker pros that are super hot poker babes. Vanessa Rousso at pokerstars is probably the most gorgeous and sexiest poker babe on earth. But let’s not forget that she is a highly skilled poker pro, with millions of dollars under her belt. Liv Boeree at Ultimate Bet is another boiling hot poker pro, but remember that she just won the EPT San Remo, defeating a field of over 1,000 (mostly male) players and pocketing a cool €1,250,000.

There are a few more great looking female poker pros that are really talented poker pros. Annette Obrestad at Full Tilt Poker is a cute petite who has tons of male fans. Annie Duke at Ultimate Bet in not exactly young but still a beautiful brunette and certainly a force in poker. Jennifer Harman as well at Full Tilt is one of the most recognized female poker pros, attractive and profitable.

All the above and a few more are gems in the poker pro crowd and the online poker rooms that sponsor them are lucky to have them, as there are only a few.

But using porn stars to promote a poker room is clearly a bit of a stretch. Recently Carbon Poker has signed Elizabeth Shannon. This is somehow controversial (by the way you can see her nude on the Internet), but she did very well at the Heads-Up Championship, so let’s give her the benefit of the doubt.

Now Victory Poker is employing the services of 2007 playmate Sara Underwood. She is totally hot, this is clear. But can she play poker? She can learn. What about Samantha Ryan? If you do not know who she is, you guessed it correctly: a porn star, and Ultimate Bet recently hired her to play at the WSOP 2010.

All this is good for the gossips, and people love gossips, especially in poker circles. But let’s keep the game as clean as we can, please.
