PokerRoom.com Announces Veronica Donavan Will Join the Team

PokerRoom.com is the best to play online poker!

Robin Tunney, who plays attorney Veronica Donovan on the hit show "Prison Break" and will be seen in the upcoming Focus Features film "Hollywoodland" in theaters September 8, has become the latest member to join Team PokerRoom.com, a group of over 100 up-and-coming poker players who represent PokerRoom.com in some of the world's foremost poker tournaments. Tunney earned her spot on the team as well as the $10,500 buy-in for the World Series of Poker (WSOP) Main Event when she won the PokerRoom.com Celebrity Poker Showdown to benefit YouthAIDS last month in California.

Tunney is the third woman to qualify for Team PokerRoom.com among the 60 plus players headed to the tournament, which includes players ranging from Billy Pero, a Boston-based electrician and second place finisher in the annual "Become a Poker Pro Tournament," to Jim Davenport, a 26-year-old University of Southern California graduate from Newport Beach, California, who became this year's professional poker player in March 2006 after receiving an endorsement package valued at $250,000 from PokerRoom.com.

Throughout the year, PokerRoom.com players duke it out online for available team spots at major land-based tournaments through online qualifying matches. Team PokerRoom.com encourages healthy competition between members but its mission is to provide a forum for players to build friendships and learn from each other as they compare strategies and experiences.

With the addition of Tunney, the team is ready to take on the more than 7,000 players scheduled to play at the World Series of Poker Main Event, scheduled for July 28 - August 10, 2006, at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. Each WSOP spot is worth $13,500 and includes travel, hotel, tournament entry fee and special activities with the rest of Team PokerRoom.com.

"We are excited that Robin Tunney will be playing with Team PokerRoom.com for the WSOP Main Event," said PokerRoom.com spokesperson Glenn Cademartori. "We look forward to seeing Robin's acting skills and poker face in action during the tournament. She is a talented actress and enthusiastic poker player who will be in great company with the other team members. Our team approach to the WSOP represents PokerRoom.com's overall position as the perfect forum for players to strengthen their strategy, skill and determination for big poker tournaments."
