Team Bodog Signs Poker Professional, Jay Tan

Bodog Poker’s professional players/brand ambassadors, Team Bodog have just grown by one member. The site recently announced the addition of Hong Kong’s Jay Tan to its roster, expanding their line-up with one of the poker world’s fastest rising stars.

Jay Tan, a native of Los Angeles now living in Hong Kong, is a talented player and speaks three languages fluently. Tan has been making quite a name for herself in recent years. One of her most impressive showings was at the Macau Poker Club’s recent Red Dragon event where she finished second. Tan is the niece of famous American writer Amy Tan (The Joy Luck Club) and, aside from being skilled in poker, is an accomplished mahjong player as well. Bodog Poker continues to make forays into the every expanding Asian poker market, signing Tan (who speaks fluent Mandarin, Cantonese and English) after having launched Chinese language support for its online casino platform.

Considering the continuing growth of poker in Asia, Tan felt that Bodog was a smart choice for her sponsorship, stating that “[Bodog] seems to really understand the Asian market” and that the site’s anonymous tables are a great choice for a demographic of competitors who “are new to the game and don’t want to be beaten by players who are unfairly using their own playing data against them.” Bodog Poker’s Vice President, Jonas Odman, agreed with her points and added that “with Jay as the face of the brand we can take things a step further” in the Asian market.
