Phoenix, AZ

Rita SherrillRita was born and raised in Northern Ohio and relocated to Phoenix, AZ in May of 2000. Mother of 3 amazing children, Tiffany 31, Daniel 28 and Xander 13. Grandmother to Zailey 11, Corbin 6 and Rose (arriving in June this year). She met her boyfriend, Jeremy, playing poker at a local bar game about 4 1/2 years ago.

Rita started playing poker when she was around 20 years old back in Ohio and it quickly became a favorite weekend past time with friends, especially during the winter months when it was too cold to get outside and camp or go canoeing. Dealer call it taught her all of the ins and outs of poker in general. She then took up Texas Holdem after moving to Phoenix and the big holdem boom was happening everywhere.

Her Hendon mob shows a 4th place finish at the Nevada State Ladies Championship last year and she is looking to improve on that this year. She has many cashes at her favorite local casinos and in Vegas where she plays at least 4-5 times per year. Her most recent accomplishment was a player of the month prize in December which earned her a 7 day cruise for 2 and an $1100 seat to the HPT on board the Card Player Cruise which was held on the Royal Caribbean ship Symphony of the Seas. She and Jeremy had an amazing vacation and made lots of memories with friends old and new while on board.

She has played in a couple smaller WSOP events and is looking forward to playing more this summer. Always loves to travel to play and has been to Reno, Las Vegas, Bell Gardens, Temecula, Cleveland, and Albuquerque to name a few.

Rita is a proud member of the following poker groups: Real Grinders, WPA and LIPS. She will see you on the felt!
