Glamorous Young Pro Sara Underwood Aiming High At VictoryPokerMay 20, 2010 6:50 am
Oregon born beauty Sara Jean Underwood has been aiming high ever since becoming a sponsored pro for Victory Poker and says she would like nothing more than to win a gold bracelet at the upcoming WSOP event.
“I want to be known as a professional poker player who can hold my own at the top with some of the best…Big things in the poker world are definitely in my future,” she says.
The 26 year old stunner graduated from Oregon State University in 2002 with a degree in business marketing, and got her first modelling break in October 2005, when she was featured on the front cover of Playboy, later going on to become the magazines Playmate of the Year in 2007.
Then whilst taking part in an ad campaign for Victory Poker she started talking to the Victory Poker CEO Dan Fleyshman, about her interest in the game and quick as a flash he had contacted her agent and offered her a place on the team with the promise of transforming her into an accomplished poker pro.
Since then, Sara has been receiving professional training from such top notch players as Andrew Robl, Keith Gibson, and The Maven with the expert opinions of other members of Team Victory on hand whenever she needs it. These include Antonio Esfandiari, Danny Wong, Brian Rast,Sander Lylloff, Dan Bilzerian, Paul Wasicka, Lee Markholt, Alec Torelli and David Chicotsky.
With such an accomplished team to learn from Sara Underwood is understandably confident of her future poker career and as she explains:
“You don’t get the top notch training I have been getting, and put in the time that I have put in, to be unsuccessful at poker…I play online almost every night. I read, I watch, and I get lessons. I’ve been on a fast pace to really learning how to play and dominate…I just enjoy it. It’s a challenge and I think it’s fun.”
We wish Sara best of luck at VictoryPoker and look forward to hearing about her accomplishments in the game in the future.
