Jennette "Jay" Tan Signs With Bodog Poker

Posted at 23:35 2012-04-02

Bodog Poker have announced they have signed Jennette "Jay" Tan to their Team Bodog stable following her imressive results in major tournament held in Macau, including her superb showing at the recent Macau Poker Cup at the Red Dragon Event. Tan will join two fellow female stars in Evelyn Ng and Tatjana Pasalic.

Although widely regarded as Australian by many in the poker community Tan was actually born in Los Angeles though she reloacted to Hong Kong to start her banking career with Goldman Sachs shortly after completing her Masters degree in Business. Whilst in Hong Kong she discovered poker after watching a televised poker show that starred Team PokerStars Pro Daniel Negreanu and she decided to try and learn the game.

Tan quickly grasped the various concepts and became a winning player in no time at all, eventually deciding to quit banking to concentrate on poker full time and that decision seems to have paid off for her as signing for Bodog could see her become a regular in major poker tournaments around the world.

Speaking of her new sponsorship deal Tay said, "It’s great they chose me. It’s an exciting brand and I’m excited to have this opportunity.. they are a fun brand and I love having fun playing poker and living the lifestyle that goes with being a Bodog Poker Pro."
