Melanie "Callisto" Weisner Joins Lock Poker

Lock Poker has just announced that 25 year-old Melanie “Callisto” Weisner has now become the latest member of the LockPRO ELITE team. Commenting on her new sponsorship deal, Melanie said:
“I am thrilled to join a team of world-class players and talented peers such as Chris Moorman, Matt Stout and Leo Margets. I feel very honoured to be a part of this exciting and growing brand, and look forward to representing Lock around the world.”
The young Texas beauty has proven to be a remarkable talent since cashing in at her first event back in 2006, and has already amassed over $1.2 million in online winnings playing mostly MTTs and heads-up sit-and-gos.
The US pro chose the name “Callisto 5” to ply her trade online, and a quick recap of our Greek mythology will tell us that Callisto was a beautiful nymph associated with the goddess of hunting, Artemis, who was eventually placed in the sky as the constellation Ursa Major or Great Bear.
The poker hottie would appear to have chosen her name appropriately, as many a player encountering Melanie Weisner on the felts would attest to feeling hunted then mauled before she finally relieves them of their chips.
Melanie Weisner also seems equally at home playing live tournaments, and in 2010 earned $185,198, and a further $179,299 in 2011 to take her live career earnings to $376,283. Amongst Melanie’s live poker highlights is victory at the 2010 PokerStars EPT Monte Carlo Ladies Event for $32,994.
Commenting on their latest recruit, Lock Poker CEO Jennifer Larson said:
“Melanie is a perfect fit for Lock. Passionate, relentless in her dedication to the game and incredibly intelligent. Players like Melanie give us the true insight into the product and player experience that we need to become the best. Partnering with our players is the true path to greatness.”
