Bodog Poker’s Female Friendly Lineup

May 2, 2011

Via Twitter, Evelyn Ng announced her sponsorship renewal deal with Bodog Poker. Ng is the longest sponsored poker pro at Bodog Poker, who has been with the brand since 2006, tweeted last Wednesday, “I am thrilled to announce that I’ve renewed my sponsorship agreement with Bodog!”

Due to her televised appearances on the felt, she has become one of the most well-recognized faces in poker, though she hasn’t had the success rate as some of the other big dogs in the industry. She is just likeable and well-known, which is why Bodog wants to keep her on. In the wake of all of the other bad news and shuffling around in the online poker industry, it’s good to hear some good news. It is likely that Ng is grateful that she has a sponsorship deal with a thriving US brand online poker room that has not been attacked by the US Department of Justice lately.

Ng was representing Bodog at the EPT San Remo Main Event in San Remo, Italy with her boyfriend Lex “Raszi” Veldhuis, when she tweeted the news last week. In her career, Ng has successfully won around $375K in live tournaments alone since she started she took up occupation as a poker player in 2004.

In efforts to move towards a more female oriented marketing campaign, Bodog let a number of poker pros that they had been collecting over the years go. Players like Survivor star Jean Robert Bellande and WSOP second placer in 2004 David Williams were cut from the roster at Bodog Poker over the last year. Ng is one of the two sponsored pros left at Bodog Poker. The other is Amanda Musumeci, winner of Bodog’s promo contest to find the next pro.
