renesummersIn my fast-passed job as an IT Professional, it’s stressful.  I found it calm away from the multiple computer screens… in Poker.

Started playing online poker in 2003 for fun after a couple of colleagues invited her to a small home game and gave her the 5-minute intro lesson.  Started taking more seriously in 2005 with the attendance of a couple of poker boot camps as they started to get popular.  Played first live LIPS event in 2012 and fell in love with helping bring more women into poker and teaching women about poker. 

“Poker is my relaxation and passion!”  Won my seat to my first WSOP Ladies event in 2018 and out of just under a field of 700 made first cash at 40th place.   

Still to come for 2019… you will find me at the LIPS event’s at the Bike and Vegas when I can, and I won my seat to the Aria WPT500 in June and the WPT League Championship in November.
