Absolute Poker today announced the signing of respected poker player Matt Vengrin as its newest pro. The Texas HoldÃ¢â‚¬â„¢em champion, who was most recently associated with Full Tilt Poker, had been on the radar of a number of online poker rooms before connecting with Absolute Poker. The leading online poker site, which is part of the CEREUS Poker Network, is building a roster of poker players and is thrilled to start with one of Texas HoldÃ¢â‚¬â„¢emÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s finest.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“I am honored and humbled that I was chosen to help represent Absolute Poker,Ã¢â‚¬Â stated Vengrin. Ã¢â‚¬Å“I believe in the brand and look forward to a long term relationship working side by side with the management team.Ã¢â‚¬Â
In a little over two years, Vengrin has won over $717,000 playing online poker at UltimateBet, Full Tilt Poker, and Poker Stars. In 2009 alone, the online poker pro has amassed five top ten finishes in several popular online poker tournaments, including a 9th place showing in UltimateBetÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s UBOC Event #1, a Pot Limit Omaha tournament, for $1,800. Other notable wins include a 1st place finish in a recent No Limit HoldÃ¢â‚¬â„¢em event for $61,600 in February and a 2nd place finish in a $100k tournament for $21,327 in January.
Totaling close to $400,000, his land-based tournament wins are equally impressive. Most recently, Vengrin finished strong in Event #9 of the 2009 Aussie Millions for nearly $10,000. At UltimateBetÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s 2008 Aruba Poker Classic, the worldÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s most popular island-based tournament thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s going into its 8th year, Vengrin collected $6,670. And at last yearÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s 2008 World Series of Poker, the online poker star secured $167,973 for a 3rd place finish in Event #29.
Online poker players at Absolute Poker can employ the online poker siteÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s free Absolute Buddy software to discover where Matt Vengrin is seated. He will be featured in red text while playing at Absolute PokerÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s tables under the name mattvengrin.
