Las Vegas: Titan Poker, one of the fastest growing online poker rooms, issued its congratulations to its Spokesmodel, Joanna Krupa, for her stellar World Series of Poker achievements. Joanna, considered by Playboy Magazine to be the “World’s Hottest Swimsuit Model,” shocked poker fans by outlasting most of the other celebrities and professional players participating in this year’s WSOP Main Event in Las Vegas.
Despite only beginning to play poker last year, Joanna survived well into the second round of play of the Texas Hold’em No Limit $10,000Buy-In Main Event, beating out more than
5,000 poker players, including actresses Shannon Elizabeth and Jennifer Tilly and 2004 WSOP champ Greg “Fossilman” Raymer. “I am happy that I beat a lot of pros fromthe first day,” Joanna said. "They play all the time and this is only my second time in a tournament. I’m
very pleased with myself.”
Sporting a Titan Poker t-shirt and bearing an awesome poker concentration, Joanna played through 11 grueling hours of poker on Day Two before she was knocked out of the competition. Joanna, whose picture has graced the covers of Maxim, GQ, and Playboy Magazines, said her looks didn’t help her that much at the table. “I don’t think they’re looking at every person and getting distracted. I just think everybody is here to do their best," she said.
Joanna has teamed up exclusively with Titan Poker and plays regularly at the popular online poker room. Joanna has appeared in a number of exciting film and television projects, and will soon star in a major production on the Fox network.In addition to Joanna, many other players qualified to represent Titan Poker at the 2006 World Series of Poker.
