Go Toe-to-Toe With an AbsolutePoker.com Pro in Trishelle Cannatella's Second Weekly Tuesday Tourney at 16:00 ET

The Leading Online Poker Site Is Giving Players a Second Shot at Taking Down Cannatella in the New Euro-Friendly $15K GTD Event Held Every Tuesday Afternoon, and the Bonus Is There's a Big Bounty to Be Won

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - March 21, 2011) - AbsolutePoker.com ("AP") is adding to its own line-up of Pro Bounty tournaments, with Trishelle Cannatella ready to rise to the challenge in the site's weekly Tuesday $15K GTD, a $150+12 buy-in event at 16:00 ET. Online poker players gunning for a piece of the popular AP pro can give it their best shot two times now, each Tuesday in AP's 'Toe-to-Toe' promotion.

"I'm so excited that Absolute Poker is giving me another tournament to host on Tuesdays! My 10k tournament has surpassed the guarantee every week and I'm hoping the same success for this one. Come join me every Tuesday and if you can't get my bounty, at least stop by to say hello!" said AP pro Cannatella.

For the second time in AP's new series of Pro Bounties, TRISHELLE_C steps into the spotlight as tournament host. Tuesdays with Trishelle is now a double-header for fans of the Reality TV star, with the addition of the new 16:00 ET No Limit Hold 'em event running each week from March 22nd. The afternoon timeslot will allow Cannatella's European-based supporters to join her for the leading online poker room's $15K GTD event, in which players have the chance to snare their share of the prize pool, along with a shot at sending the AP pro to the sidelines; the player wily enough to out-smart this Louisiana native, will bank the Pro Bounty of a $215 entry to AP's Sunday $200K GTD for the following weekend.

Cannatella's star first rose to prominence in MTV's top-rated series The Real World: Las Vegas in 2003. The southern belle was determined to extend the life of her fifteen minutes of fame, and she has successfully parlayed her initial publicity into winning poker, modeling and acting careers.

With a marketing and advertising degree under her belt, don't ever underestimate this blonde bombshell. Her casual entry into the game might have started out on a lark, but her home-game winning streak was serious business. Her first foray at the felt in a live poker event was recorded soon after in a small Caesar's Palace event, in which she bested a field of 80 to claim victory. She has continued to earn respect from her growing legion of followers with turns in the 2005 Celebrity Poker Showdown, and in the 2008 WPT Celebrity Invitational. More recently, she final tabled the UB sponsored Canada Poker Classic in Montreal, and has had many successes in various charity tournaments in L.A. and Las Vegas.

With prominent roles in 30 hit films and TV shows to her credit, including Fear Factor, Criminal Minds, and the Dukes of Hazzard: The Beginning, her acting skills have always come in handy at the tables. TRISHELLE_C is smart enough to know that her sweet southern demeanor is also one of her biggest advantages. Players who think she'll be a push over might be surprised by her gutsy game, but they'll never be disappointed by her ability to entertain.

So, take your best shot at this AP pro in not one, but two separate events on Tuesdays with Trishelle: the established $10K GTD at 21:20 ET and the all-new $15K GTD at 16:00 ET, listed under the "EVENTS" tab in the tournament lobby, where players will find her at the tables under the name TRISHELLE_C. Either be prepared to pony up the $150+12 entry fee, or check out the many less expensive satellites, starting from as little as $5+0.50.
