Full Tilt Poker Signs Danielle Andersen for Main Event Sponsorship
Over the weekend Full tilt Poker announced that they have signed Danielle “DMOONGIRL” Andersen to a Main Event sponsorship deal.
Prior to Black Friday Andersen had been working hard to increase her visibility in the poker community, she had switched her attentions from online cash games to large buy-in live tournaments. It seemed as if she was set for a sponsorship deal with one of the major online poker sites but then Black Friday came along and everything stopped.
Her story was told in the online poker documentary Bet Raise Fold. The Senior Manager of Pro, Celebrity & VIP Marketing at Full Tilt, Dustin Iannotti, said “Her story of supporting her family through poker speaks to the modern generation of poker players. We are so happy to sponsor Danielle into the main event and feel it is a natural follow-up from her story detailed in the documentary.”
While it isn’t the long term deal that Andersen dreams of, she knows it is a step in the right direction. She’s also happy to represent Full Tilt, the site where she practiced her poker skills.
“The majority of my growth and development as a poker player has occurred on Full Tilt Poker. I’m honored, excited, and appreciative for the opportunity to represent them during the 2013 Main Event,” said Anderson.
