Absolute Poker Launches Personalized Skins

19 December 2005

SAN JOSE, Costa Rica – (PRESS RELEASE) -- Players at Absolute Poker have learned that they can add a touch of personality to their poker game with the launch of Absolute Poker "Skins". Absolute Poker has opened to its players the ability to personalize their own poker table with new and improved graphics and a user-friendly setup. Players can visit AbsolutePoker.com , where they will find an extensive array of new styles for Absolute Poker's card room.

In early November, Absolute Poker announced a design contest open to all members to design a "skin" that was unique and different from the "classic" Absolute Poker table. With a $500 cash prize on the line, many designers stepped up. With hundreds of entries, choosing one design was no easy task. "Every day we receive dozens of entries. It's quite amazing to see the level of creativity and diversity that these artists bring to the contest. While some have not quite made the cut, others have simply blown us away with the complexity of the design," commented Mike Edwards, Business Development Manager at Absolute Poker.

"We took a detailed look at each and every submission," says Gian Perroni, Poker Room Manager at Absolute Poker. "There were a few that made the immediate short list, but at the end, we declared that there was one that stood above the rest." Mr. Perroni is pleased to announce that the Skin Contest winner is Brent Jones from Placerville, CA. "Brent designed a suburb pirate theme that is simply amazing. His attention to detail is clearly evident and it is this dedication to the spirit of the contest that made his design stand above the rest. Congratulations, Brent."

To see all of the submissions and Mr. Jones' winning design, go to AbsolutePoker.com. All of the table designs have been indexed for easy reference, and installing a new table is quick and simple. Additionally, Absolute Poker is pleased to announce a special section of holiday tables -- released just in time for players to appreciate at this time of year.

"We encourage all members, new and old, to try out some of the new designs. You really can't appreciate the way it changes the atmosphere or the vision of the designer until you try them out. All of the participants should be proud of the hard work they put into their designs," stated Edwards. While the contest is over, players are still encouraged to share their creativity with the world. "We want our players to help us keep this part of our site fresh. There is really no limit to the amount of creativity out there. Sharing a skin design is a great way to interact with other members of the Absolute Poker community.
