It took a good while but Bodog Poker has selected it’s new sponsored pro! Amanda Musumeci was selected from a plethora of entrants to become part of Team Bodog.
The 25-year-old Philadelphia, PA native now calls Las Vegas home and tries to spend as much time as she can enjoying the great outdoors. She enjoys hiking, camping, rock climbing and paragliding. Amanda certainly has a passion for adventure sports. And she takes this yearning for an adrenalin rush to the poker tables.
Originally playing under the alias, "Manderbutt," she credits the Bodog online poker room for giving her an atmosphere that was conducive to learning, allowing her to develop into the formidable poker player that she is today. In two years, Manda went from playing in Bodog Poker’s sit-n-go tournaments, to winning numerous guaranteed tournaments and bigger multi-table tournaments and amassing over $200K in tournament winnings.
Amanda’s began her entry into the world of poker while in college, when a friend invited her to an Aussie Millions event she quickly realized her calling. Meeting and befriending female poker pro Anna Wroblewski at the Aussie Millions, she then moved to Las Vegas with Wroblewski, who trained her and staked her. Together they currently share a condo owned by Anna’s friend, poker pro Barry Greenstein.
