Online poker room Ultimate Bet announced today the signing of Tiffany Ã¢â‚¬ËœHot ChipsÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ Michelle as its newest member of the Ultimate Star Players Team.

24 year-old Tiffany Michelle gained recent poker stardom at the 2008 World Series of Poker by defeating the largest field of any other female in the history of the WSOP Main Event. Michelle skillfully whittled her way through a field of 6,844 participants to finish in the 17th position, earning $334,534. Highlighted by the rolling cameras, Tiffany Michelle, donning the UltimateBet Ã¢â‚¬Å“UB ArmyÃ¢â‚¬Â logo, became the last woman standing in the 2008 WSOP.
UltimateBet consultant Annie Duke offered her comments on the signing of the newest Team UltimateBet member, Ã¢â‚¬Å“From Hollywood to Vegas, Tiffany Michelle is a rising star in so many extraordinary ways. WeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re thrilled to be able to bring such a talented force on board.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Tiffany Michelle, who can be found playing online poker at UltimateBet under the username Ã¢â‚¬Å“Tiffany MÃ¢â‚¬Â, has appeared in variety of films and television series, including appearances on Nip/Tuck and E.R. As a way to supplement income between her acting and songwriting career, Michelle began playing online poker at UltimateBet.
Discovering she was more than lucky, but quite talented at the game of poker, she began playing in land-based tournaments as well. It wasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t long before MichelleÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s dexterity gained the respect of professional poker players around the world.
On a more sour note, Michelle found herself under scrutiny and possible penalization by the courts as PokerNews.com, whom Michelle has been reporting poker news with for quite some time, was not too pleased to find the poker pro sporting UltimateBet advertisements at the 2008 WSOP while contracted with the online poker media company. The outcome of these actions has not yet been determined, but 4Flush is keeping a close eye on the story.
