LAS VEGAS (February 19, 2014) Ultimate Poker (UltimatePoker.com), the first licensed and regulated online poker site in America, has signed poker pro, Danielle Andersen as part of Team U.
Andersen, 29, is arguably the highest earning female online cash game player in the history of online poker. Andersen’s competitive nature led her to pick up the game after watching her future husband and friends, play in college in 2003. Finding herself winning on a regular basis, she made a $50 deposit and never looked back. Andersen soon left her $8 an hour job in college, to play poker professionally.
“I’m very excited to begin a new chapter in my poker career as I sign on as the newest member of Team U. I’m looking forward to my return to the online poker tables and the first legal online poker site in the United States seems like the perfect place to do it!”
Widely known in the poker community as “dmoongirl” Andersen was consistently found playing $25-$50 6-max cash games online – sometimes even as high as $200-$400. As one of the focal points in the online poker documentary, “Bet Raise Fold,” her life as a professional female poker player, wife and mother was one of the more highlighted character arcs in the documentary. The success of “Bet Raise Fold” catapulted her to becoming an even more recognizable face and name within the poker community.
“We’re excited to add Danielle to Team U,” remarked Ultimate Poker Chief Marketing & Operations Officer, Joe Versaci. “We love the energy that she brings to the online arena with her competitive attitude.”
Andersen has been an inspiration to poker fans and aspiring female poker players worldwide. She can be seen at the Ultimate Poker tables playing under the screen name, “dmoongirl.”
