Shannon Elizabeth signs with Carbon Poker

Posted by Steve Ruddock on Jul 01, 2010 Posted in Poker News | No Comments »

After a misinformed post by Perez Hilton claiming Shannon Elizabeth runs a very sketchy home poker game –the post was quickly squashed since Shannon was in Las Vegas at the WSOP when the game supposedly took place—Carbon Poker proves that timing is everything, and announced they have signed the poker playing celebrity to a sponsorship deal.

Obviously the signing has a lot to do with Shannon’s looks and stardom, but she has proven herself a capable poker player, finishing 3rd at the 2007 National Heads-Up Poker Championship and having multiple WSOP cashes to her credit.

Carbon Poker spokesman, Peter Hampton, had this to say about the signing: “We’ve been on the hunt for a face for our brand who is a recognized star and also a respected member of the poker community… Shannon easily meets both criteria, and offers a creative edge that we’re thrilled to have on board.” Hampton went on to add, “We’re launching several promotions that will involve players playing against Shannon and getting to know her both inside and outside of poker.”

Elizabeth will not only wear the Carbon Poker logo at major tournaments but will also be involved with the online arm of the site, both playing at Carbon Poker’s tables and running promotions involving herself.
