Tiffany Michelle

It was while working as an actress and on-camera host that Tiffany Michelle fell into playing poker. In 2008, at the young age of 24, she burst into the male dominated world of professional poker when she outperformed her way to a record breaking 17th place finish out of 6,844 players at the World Series of Poker Championship Event in Las Vegas. As the last woman standing, she broke the record for the largest field ever conquered by a female in live poker tournament history and scored a $334,534 payday. The poker world took notice and Tiffany and she landed on the list of 2008's Most Fascinating People in Poker. After the ESPN cameras caught her record-breaking run she was instantly skyrocketed to celebrity status, but would soon discovered that being an attractive, confident, successful woman in a man’s world would be an uphill battle.
