Blackjack Champion Joins Online Poker Team

Online poker room UltimateBet announced that they have secured blackjack sensation and TV personality ‘Hollywood’ Dave onStann for their Star Players Team.

“We’re thrilled to have the Bad Boy of Blackjack  our Star Players Team,” stated Annie Duke, UltimateBet’s Cardroom Consultant. “His poker skills are quickly becoming on par with his blackjack skills and it’s only a matter of time before ‘Hollywood’ Dave Stann becomes a household name in the poker world.”

Stann graduated from Kent State University with an Honors BFA Theater degree and spent years on the stage before moving to Los Angeles in 2001 to pursue a career in film and television.

In 2006, Stann dedicated 6 months of his life to mastering the art of poker by trading blackjack and poker lessons with Annie Duke, the #1 female poker player and UltimateBet’s Cardroom Consultant.

His dedication paid off. In 2007, ‘Hollywood Dave’ Stann was recognized by a major online poker strategy site as a Top Ten player in the under $1k buy-in category. That year, Stann went on to win nearly $250,000 playing in poker tournaments. So far in 2008, Stann has cashed at the World Series of Poker, finished strong in a Caesars Palace circuit event, and claimed back-to-back third place finishes at the Bicycle Casino.

Online poker players at UltimateBet can employ the online poker site’s free UltimateBuddy software and add the name HollywoodDave to their buddy list to discover where Dave Stann is playing.
