Jennette "Jay" Tan Joins Team Bodog

Today, Bodog has announced the addition of Asian poker star Jennette “Jay” Tan to its small but exquisite stable of female players which already includes Evelyn Ng and Tatjana Pasalic. Commenting on her new deal, Tan 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.”
Born in Los Angeles, Jay Tan has a Masters in Business and relocated to Hong Kong to begin a banking career at Goldman Sachs. However, after watching Daniel Negranu playing poker on TV, Jay felt inspired to give the game a go herself and soon had made enough money from tournaments and cash games to quit banking altogether and become a full-time pro.
Amongst Jay Tan’s poker successes this year is a 5th place finish at the $1,418 Macau Poker Cup NL Red Dragon event for $40,622, and a 2nd place finish in the Macau Poker Cup $644 NLHE KO Bounty event for $15,475. Last year, she also cashed in her first WSOP event for $2,288 at the $1k event, bringing her total live winnings to $63,899 since 2011.
Jennette “Jay” Tan will represent the company at a time when the site’s Chinese poker client Bodog88 is launched, with the poker starlet already a high-profile face in the Asian poker community. Commenting on their latest signing, VP of the Bodog Poker Network Jonas Odman, said:
“With Jay as the face of the brand we can take things a step further as she is a trusted and likeable ambassador for us – she can also play a mean game of poker!”
When Jay is not playing poker, she likes to ride her Honda VFR400 around the streets of Hong Kong but said she would buy a  Ducati Monster when she wins her first tournament.
