Online casino and poker room IronDuke.com has announced the signing of American professional Jennifer ‘Jennicide’ Leigh as its first sponsored player.
Leigh is well known in poker circles for her appearances on GSN's Poker Royale where she bested the likes of Dan Harrington and ‘Miami’ John Cernuto as a 21-year-old. The Delaware native also appeared in the April edition of Playboy along with past spreads in FHM and is an avid gamer who enjoys all varieties of poker.
'IronDuke.com has lots of different limits and probably the most games available on the Internet,” said Leigh.
“They even have games like Badugi.'
Run on the Merge Gaming Network, IronDuke.com features the standard selection of Hold'em, Omaha and stud poker alongside triple draw and five-card stud.
“It's exciting,' said Leigh.
'This is certainly a site I can grow with.'
Leigh stated that part of the excitement is the chance to play with people she wouldn't normally encounter since she has been mostly playing at higher limits. The deal with IronDuke.com will see her mixing in plenty of lower-stakes action.
'I know that not everybody can afford to sit there and play high limits,' said Leigh.
'I want to play with everyone and I want to play no-limit games, even if it's just 25 cents no-limit. The professionals online mostly play limit. It's one of those things where I want to be able to actually talk and play with people who don't necessarily play high stakes.'
Besides chatting with players, the deal will also see her take part in her first World Series of Poker Europe tournament, which happens later this month in London. This will be especially exciting for Leigh after she was forced to miss this year’s World Series of Poker in Las Vegas because of jury duty.
