Absolute Poker's Trishelle Cannatella Takes Trash Talk Championship Title

Celebrity Endorser for Absolute Poker Wins Tournament in Support of the Sharon Osbourne Colon Cancer Program at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - February 9, 2010) - Absolute Poker's Trishelle Cannatella is proving that in the real world of poker, she has what it takes to be called a pro. Cannatella stormed her way through the $1,000 + $70 Texas Hold'em tournament at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas last weekend, besting a field of 60 players that included sister site's Tiffany Michelle.

The tournament featured a number of celebrities who went all in to raise money for the Sharon Osbourne Colon Cancer Program at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.

This isn't the first poker tournament Cannatella has won. The reality TV star got the Texas Hold'em itch after winning her first tournament at Caesars. A subsequent appearance on Celebrity Poker Showdown furthered her desire to pursue a career in poker.

In early November 2009, Trishelle Cannatella joined Absolute Poker as a celebrity endorser. Cannatella has appeared on several popular reality TV series, movies, dramas and specials including MTV's The Real World, Punk'd, Fear Factor, Criminal Minds, The Hillz, The Dukes of Hazzard: The Beginning, The Surreal Life, Playboy: Girls of Reality TV and several others.
