Absolute Poker teaming up with Hooters for academy

24 February 2010

MIAMI, Florida -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- For most poker fans, nothing goes better with poker than beer, wings and beautiful women in tight clothing cheering everyone on. So this month, Absolute Poker is mixing them all together to create a poker experience unlike no other. Together with Hooters, the online poker site is presenting the Poker Academy in Hollywood, California in late February.

Matt Vengrin will host the free poker event, scheduled for February 25, 2010 from 7-9pm. The acclaimed professional poker player will offer free poker tips to those in attendance while they enjoy free wings and beer. Poker fans will have the opportunity to compete at on-site tables or play against a world of online poker players at one of several on-site gaming terminals.

"I'm all about trying new stuff to increase the appeal of poker," said poker professional Matt Vengrin, "This is one of the first of many new things I will be doing to help bridge the gap between the poker world and the world outside of poker."

Matt Vengrin is one of online poker's most successful young poker players. In a little over two years, the 24-year-old has won nearly $2 million playing at the online poker tables and in land-based events around the world.

Making appearances at the Hooters event and giving the Hooters' waitresses a run for their money are Absolute Poker's Trishelle Cannatella and Lacey Jones.

To gain access to the Poker Academy at Hooters in Hollywood, poker players can sign up for a free account at using the promo code HOOTERS. Once their free online poker account has been activated, new users can email their Screen Name, First Name and Last Name to to secure an invite.
