Gibraltar (PRWEB) April 26, 2006
MANSION, the international Poker, Casino, Sportsbook and Sports Exchange gaming entertainment company, is proud to announce a multi-layered sponsorship of poker’s newest rising star, professional tournament player Erica Schoenberg.
MANSION, a growing global force in the gaming industry, confirms the three-year partnership with the 28 year-old Schoenberg as she emerges from a career-highlight 16th place performance from a field of 605 starters, pocketing over $100,000 in the 4th Annual Five Star World Poker Classic WPT event in Las Vegas.
Schoenberg’s stellar play in the $25,000 No Limit Hold’em event comes fresh on the heels of her recent showing at the Foxwoods Poker Classic, where she impressed as the top female-finisher of the event, outlasting 350-plus players.
“It is with great excitement that we welcome Erica to the MANSION team. MANSION is thrilled to endorse a player with Erica’s obvious talents and skills that extend far beyond the poker table, and we look forward to developing a successful partnership with her,” says David Kinsman, Chief Operating Officer of MANSION Limited.
“Erica is an intelligent woman with a bright future on the international poker circuit. She is poised to become one of the stand-out players and personalities of the game, and we congratulate Erica on a fantastic 16th place get,” adds Kinsman.
Yet, winning at cards is definitely not a new phenomenon for the former Blackjack professional, trained by the infamous MIT Blackjack outfit. Competitive by nature, with a tournament beach volleyball career also on her resume, Poker is Schoenberg’s new game of choice. Her results at the Bellagio and Foxwoods prove her ever-evolving style of poker will be a formidable force on the Texas Hold’em Tournament circuit.
The Foxwoods tournament was Schoenberg’s inaugural outing at the felt sporting the MANSION name and logo, both cementing the relationship and airing it publicly for the first time.
“I am so excited to have joined with MANSION, and thrilled to have shown a top-twenty result at one of the most respected poker events worldwide. It is truly a premiere event with all the best players in the game,” Schoenberg enthuses.
“I am confident that my relationship with MANSION will continue to generate some fantastic results,” Schoenberg adds.
The endorsement requires Schoenberg devote more time to live tournament play as a roving poker ambassador for MANSION, to compete on the international circuit in prestige land-based tournaments, plus represent the gaming brand at key industry conferences, exhibitions, and events.
Schoenberg will receive front line support from MANSION that offers her more than just a generous bank-roll. The glamorous Schoenberg will be groomed as a MANSION spokes-model and on-air media presenter, and will be actively promoted as the face of MANSION at the forefront of some very exciting projects for the company in the future.
The pairing proves both well-timed and judicious for the gaming entertainment giant, on the eve of the launch of MANSIONPOKER.COM, and preceding a multi-million-dollar roll out of a portfolio of sponsorships, investments and marketing initiatives set to substantially raise the company’s global profile.
Schoenberg, a native Ohioan, will infuse the MANSION brand with an amiable and vibrant omnipresence that poker fans can physically engage with at land-based Poker events across the globe.
Internet poker devotees should look for Erica online playing under her new handle “str8flushin” honing her Poker skills at MANSIONPOKER.COM, her number one choice of poker portals.
