Amanda Leatherman Joins Team Bodog BabesSeptember 20, 2011 8:38 am
Bodog continues bringing a touch of glamour to the poker world after announcing the signing of Amanda Leatherman to Team Bodog, which already includes hotties Evelyn Ng and Tatjana Pasalic.
In terms of poker, Amanda Leatherman’s background is similar to that of Tatjana Pasalic from Croatia, 27, with both ladies primarily known for being young, attractive presenters with a thorough understanding of the industry of which they are a part.
On the playing front, Amanda, 26, like Tatjana, has just one cash to her name for around $3,000; Amanda’s cash coming in 2008 at the $1,000 WSOP Ladies NLHE World Championship, where she finished 45th out of 1,190 players for $3,682.
Both ladies, who have only recently joined Team Bodog, will now be hoping to add significantly to their overall tallies. On the other hand, Canadian poker pro Evelyn Ng, 36, has been a member of Team Bodog since 2006 and already has $342,785 in winnings to her name.
Latest recruit, Californian resident Amanda Leatherman, started her poker career back in 2006 as a reporter for PokeWire. She has since gone on to work as a hostess and interviewer for many poker media outlets, including PokerNews.com, PokerRoad.com and the World Poker Tour.
During that time she has gained a thorough understanding of the industry and interviewed many of the games top players. She has also been lauded for her insightful interviews, where her knowledge of the game has allowed her to talk effortlessly about strategy and play with the pros.
Poker fans can now look forward to seeing a lot more of Amanda Leatherman in the future, and commenting on her new deal with Bodog, the cheery girl originally from North Carolina, said:
“The Bodog life and my own are scarily similar. I can’t wait to do the Bodog photo shoot. I’ll be posting those shots on my facebook as soon as I have them but in the meantime I’ll see you all at the tables, both live and online.”
