Amanda Musumeci lands Bodog.com Poker sponsorship via Facebook
May 3, 2010 (KAHNAWAKE, QC ) – The hunt was extensive and the decision wasn’t easy, but after opening the floodgates to fans on both Twitter and Facebook, Bodog.com Poker’s social media-sourced hunt for an all new female poker pro has come to an end. Hundreds of dedicated Bodog.com Poker fans and players heard the call for applications and responded in droves. The quality and quantity of applicants was staggering and the final decision was an incredibly challenging one to make. After extensive review and deliberation, Bodog.com Poker is very happy to present to the world its newest female poker pro, Amanda Musumeci!
Amanda Musumeci, better known as “Manderbutt” to fellow online poker players, has been a regular MTT player at Bodog.com for a number of years and has racked up an impressive $175,000+ in winnings just by playing MTTs at Bodog.com. Originally from Philadelphia, PA, Musumeci moved to Kutztown, PA at the age of 19 to attend Kutztown University, where she majored in Speech/Mass Communications and minored in Political Science and Public Relations. It was during her time at Kutztown University that she first developed her passion for Poker, eventually turning her natural skill for the game into a means of paying her way through school. From there, a friend offered to send her to The Aussie Millions Poker Championship where she met and instantly became friends with noted female Poker Pro Anna Wroblewski. Shortly thereafter Musumeci found herself living in Las Vegas with Wroblewski, who took her under her wing, trained her and helped her get her start in the poker world. Musumeci has been playing poker professionally ever since.
Having started and played most of her online poker career at Bodog.com, Musumeci credits Bodog.com with helping her poker career blossom. So when a friend and fellow Bodog.com Poker regular, John Westra, sent her a link to a posting on Bodog.com’s Facebook Fan Page just a few short months ago saying they were looking for an all new female poker pro, she jumped at the opportunity and it paid off big.
“When you respond to an opportunity like this, no matter how confident you are in yourself and your abilities, there’s always a little nagging doubt in the back of your mind. So when Bodog showed a genuine interest in me, I was ecstatic,” says Bodog.com’s newest Poker Pro, Amanda Musumeci. “I’ve spent most of my online poker career playing at Bodog.com, and getting the chance to play as a pro for my favorite room was the opportunity of a lifetime. It also really showed me that, unlike a lot of other rooms, Bodog supports and invests in their players. I couldn’t ask for a better home and look forward to kicking some butt in Bodog’s name.“
Musumeci, now known to the Bodog.com Poker world as “BodogMander”, joins Veteran Bodog.com Poker Pro Evelyn Ng as a member of Team Bodog, easily the hands down most attractive team in the industry. Combine Musumeci and Ng’s sultry seductions and feminine charms with their years of experience and finely honed skills, and you’ve got the succubi of the online poker world – two women as beautiful as they are dangerous.
