Tiffany Michelle to Represent UltimateBet for One More Year

Poker pro Tiffany Michelle will be representing the Ultimate Bet poker brand for another year. The well-known poker pro and actress first joined UltimateBet in the summer of 2008 after she made a good run in the World Series of Poker Main Event, finishing in 17th place as the last female poker player standing.

This will be Michelle's 2nd year on the Ultimate team that includes well-known pros like Annie Duke, Phil Hellmuth, Brandon Cantu and Matt Graham. Michelle said on September 11th, 2009 that she is very happy to be signing for another year with UltimateBet and she is very eager to get back to playing in live poker events and exclusively at UltimateBet poker tables.

Michelle said that the corporate team at UltimateBet has been very supportive and she is happy to be working with them. Aside from her accomplishments in live poker events and at the UltimateBet poker tables, Michelle has also experienced relative success in front of the camera. She has previously appeared on the shows ER and Nip/Tuck and in the film, Semi-Pro.

Recently, Michelle, together with fellow poker pro Maria, was announced as participant on the 15th season of the well-known CBS reality show The Amazing Race". The pair will compete against eleven other teams as they race across the world attempting to win a total of $1 million 1st place cash prize.

Michelle created a minor controversy when she called the clock on poker pro Paul Snead at an important point in the event. Aside from that, Michelle got in a public dispute with Tony G and Jeffrey Lisandro over a sponsorship agreement. Michelle can be found playing at the online poker tables of UltimateBet under the name Tiffany M.
