Tiffany Michelle Won't Go Nude For Playboy

Tiffany Michelle's rack never looked bigger than at the 2008 WSOP Main Event.

2008 WSOP Main Event Last Woman StandingTM  Tiffany Michelle, a woman, has told us that she's been approached by Playboy Magazine. They wanted to see if she's interested in renewing her subscription for just $19.95 a year but she'd have to act today. No, we kid. The not-so-relevant-since-the-dawn-of-free-Internet-porn men's mag has asked Tiffany if she's interested in doing a nude pictorial.

Said Tiffany:

"Obviously we passed on the offer to do the mag... well not 'obviously' but the nude thing isn't really my vibe or the next step for my career. I'm all about sexy photo shoots just not nudie Playboy shoots. Plus, let's be honest the largest rack I've ever had is when I was sittin' behind 9-something-mill at the WSOP."

While we generally like girls to get naked for us this is probably a smart move for Tiffany. Unless you're banging Hef, land a reality TV show and then sleep with third-option NFL receivers and creepy Vegas magicians, Playboy doesn't do much to further a girl's career as it once did, which wasn't really much before to begin with. Just look how posing for Playboy catapulted Jennicide's nowhere. Now dropping a sex tape on the Internet while expressing moral outrage that it got out even though you're the one who leaked it, that's money in the bank.

Relatedly, a current tally of hot poker players who've bared all for us: Shannon Elizabeth, Jennifer Tilly, Brandi Hawbaker, Erica Schoenberg, Rhowena Colclough, Jennicide and Joanna Krupa.

Orange Alert: Dan Heimiller, Steve Dannenmann Among WPT Borgata Poker Open Leaders

This can't be good.

Uh oh.

It appears as if someone has woken them up from their post-WSOP slumber.

If the 2008 WSOP hadn't been The Year of the ProTM, it very well could've been The Year of the GingerTM.

They were everywhere...multiplying faster than Gremlins jumping into a swimming pool.

During the last few days of the Main Event, there were almost more gingers playing than non-gingers. It was out of control.

We admit, we were feeling safe lately. Let our guards down. We even lowered our Threat Assessment from "Orange" to "Blonde" or "Brunnette" even.

Then, seemingly out of nowhere, they've crept up again, and threaten to suck the soul out of all those remaining in the WPT Borgata Poker Open.

With just 27 remaining, Dan Heimiller, a ginger, is the chip leader stacked at 2,870,000 (view Heimiller's Ginger of the Day profile here). Among the 27 left is also Steve Dannenmann, a ginger, with 627,000.

Lots of big names still remain though to halt this orange threat, including Vivek Rajkumar (1,756,000), Thayer Rasmussen (1,413,000), Nick Frangos (1,140,000), Mark Seif (1,087,000), Michael Binger (718,000), Ted Forrest (607,000), Nam Le (235,000), and Chris Bell (165,000).

Brandon Cantu was knocked out in 32nd ($21,000) and Tiffany Michelle cashed in with a 46th place finish ($15,000).

BREAKING: Tiffany Michelle's Statement on Poker News and Tony G

Tiffany Michelle issues statement about PokerNews and Tony G Tiffany Michelle Official Statement - Thursday, July 17, 2008

It is with great sadness that I've had to see my accomplishment of finishing 17th in the WSOP Main Event clouded by slanderous accusations and inaccurate information. I have been humbled by the overwhelming support from friends, fans and the media and for their sake as well as mine I feel as if I must respond and bring clarity to the situation.

There is no denying the positive press and exposure I brought Pokernews by wearing their logo and being their representative during the 2008 World Series of Poker main event. After such a successful series, I am greatly dismayed by Pokernews' subsequent actions. No one has ever questioned my integrity before this and I am so distressed that Pokernews is using their powerful public forum to spin such a negative recounting of the facts of what occurred during the final two days of the main event.

Tiffany Michelle Goes Down, Out of 2008 WSOP Main Event

Tiffany Michelle wins the coveted The Last Woman StandingTM title at the 2008 WSOP Main Event.

In what is definitely a Bad for PokerTM moment, FOWCP Tiffany Michelle, a woman, and easily the most marketable (read: hot) and Good for PokerTM player left in the field, was eliminated a couple hours ago.

However, let's not overlook Tiffany's accomplishment. On percentages alone, her elimination in 17th place was the best finish ever in the history of the WSOP Main Event.      

Sure, Annie Duke finished 10th while 8 months pregnant, but let's just say that we're working on that too, if you know what we mean. Eh? Eh?

Anyway, Tiffany Michelle is now the best female poker player in the world.

2008 WSOP Update: Dennis Phillips Goes Up, Tiffany Michelle Goes Down


FOWCP Tiffany Michelle hanging in there on Day 7 of the 2009 WSOP Main Event (photo courtesy of Wicked Chops Poker).

We'll have more to come shortly, but Dennis Phillips has built his stack up over 14M at the latest break.

Poker hottie and The Last Woman StandingTM Tiffany Michelle took a hit and now has a little over 5M.

Our pick to win, David "Chino" RheemTM (sorry dude, but had to trademark your name) is hovering around 7M.

And Brandon Cantu is now down to just over 4M.

In somewhat related news, when the 27 players started today, we had 3 Canadians, 2 Danes, 1 Swede, 1 Russian, 1 Romanian, 1 Brit and 18 U.S. Americans left. Draw your own conclusions about how fucking awesome U.S. America is from that.

24 remain...

2008 WSOP Main Event: Dennis Phillips, Craig Marquis Are Chip Leaders With 27 Left

Brandon Cantu has his sights set on the Main Event title, or maybe just being this year's Lee Watkinson-Markholt.

Soooo...let's start the search for this year's Jerry Yang and Lee Watkinson-Markholt now.

With the elimination of Mike "The Mouth" Matusow in 30th place (brutal, on a flop of A-A-5, both he and Paul Snead checked, the turn was a 9, Snead moved all-in, Matusow called...The Mouth holding A-J, Snead A-9...ouch), all of the major headliner names are gone.

Even Cristian Dragomir The Fragrance is out.

With 27 remaining, the two chip leaders are Dennis Phillips (11,910,000) and Craig Marquis, who may or may not be related to Vanilla Ice (11,460,000). Phillips certainly has some Jerry Yang appeal (i.e. no appeal), but history has shown us that the chip leader with 27 left won't be the chip leader at the end unless your name is Jamie Gold. An interesting story thread could've been all the young Internet pros going deep, like Marquis, but lots of those guys (David Benefield, Gbecks) have been knocked out too, so oh well.

Phillips and Marquis are followed by the still running hot/looking hot FOWCP Tiffany Michelle with 9,755,000.

Our pick to win it, David "Chino" Rheem, continues his steady climb with 8,280,000. Aside from us picking him since the beginning, Rheem will be interesting as he should make "good TVTM" since he makes Kenny Tran look like the offspring of Humble Pie and Modest Mouse.

And the likely pick to be this year's Lee Watkinson-Markholt, Brandon Cantu, 4,740,000.

Finally, the search for this year's Brad Kondracki starts and ends with Chris Klodnicki.

Brandon Cantu Is Chip Leader at Dinner Break

Mike "The Mouth" Matusow (foreground, wearing trademark cap and glasses) is running well in the 2008 WSOP Main Event.

Quick dinner break poker pro Brandon Cantu held the chip lead as the only player stacked over 10M (10.7 to be exact).

Our pick to win it, David "Chino" Rheem, is fifth overall with 6.8M. The Last Woman StandingTM, Tiffany Michelle is sixth overall with just over 6.7M. And Mike "The Mouth" Matusow is stacked over 3.5M.

Only 35 remain and they're play down to 27.

Tiffany Michelle Wins The Last Woman Standing(TM)

Tiffany Michelle is The Last Woman StandingTM at the 2008 WSOP Main Event.

No shocker here. With the elimination of Lisa Parsons, a woman, in 76th place, Tiffany Michelle, a woman, claims the title of The Last Woman StandingTM at the 2008 WSOP Main Event.

A relatively new figure on the competitive tourney circuit, Michelle has now catapulted herself to the rarified space of best female poker player in the world.

In a not really ironic twist, as we've previously noted, Michelle is lesbian lovers super-tight with last year's The Last Woman StandingTM, Maria Ho!!!.

Michelle is still hovering around the chip lead, currently stacked at 3.36M. Previously unmentioned-in-one-single-post-on-our-site Gert Andersen has assumed the chip lead with 7.2M. Our pick to win it, David "Chino" Rheem, is stacked at 3.64M. Phil Hellmuth is up to 1.6M. And Mike "The Mouth" Matusow is right behind him at 1.52M.

Eliminations are rapid. Only 62 remain...

2008 WSOP Day 5: Gingers Flame Out, Hot Girl Goes Deep, Hellmuth Blow Up

Cristian Dragomir The Fragrance (above center) put Phil Hellmuth on mega-tilt, earning the Poker Brat a one-orbit penalty.

What a day at the 2008 WSOP Main Event.

With a ton of notable names coming into play today, the hype/anticipation levels were high. Plus, a bunch of gingers were in contention, as well as some hot girls going deep, and our random pick to win it from the beginning, David "Chino" Rheem, meaning we would have no shortage of stuff to make fun of cover.

When play wrapped, some dude we never heard of whose names sounds like an uppity Brit but is actually an Asian from LA, Mark Ketteringham, ended as chip leader stacked at 5.7M.*

Ketteringham is followed by Andrew Brokos (4,080,000) and our favorite hot girl going deep, Tiffany Michelle, with (3,800,000). Michelle is looking really, really good this win the coveted The Last Woman StandingTM title, which really is what the girls are playing for...because it's certainly not the Main Event title...because...seriously...have you looked at the history of WSOP results? Are women even trying in the Main Event? Are they even entering it?

In great news for anyone who has a soul, many of the top gingers bowed out of the field today. On the last hand of the night, Mark Vos, a ginger, ran his A-K into Dennis Phillips' A-A, sending what is likely the best hope for gingers around the world to the rail.

Also on the last hand at the featured table, Phil Hellmuth finally had a Hellmuthian Moment (phrase credit: Dr. Pauly) against Cristian Dragomir The Fragrance. Dragomir raised pre-flop, Hellmuth popped him back, and Dragomir made the call. The flop came 10 high, Hellmuth checked and The Fragrance fired. Hellmuth mucked A-K face up. Mike "The Mouth" Matusow, sitting next to Hellmuth, begged The Fragrance to show. The Fragrance turned over 10-4. Hellmuth went ballistic, calling The Fragrance an "idot" and "the worst player in history" (what do you expect, he's a scent!). Hellmuth continued the tirade and was smacked with a one orbit penalty that will take effect when play begins tomorrow.

Anyway that was exhausting to type, so just know that only 79 remain, our pick to win it is still hanging strong with 2.3M, and you can get full chip counts here.

And then there were three.

Kara Scott was just eliminated in 104th place, meaning only three remain for The Last Woman StandingTM at the 2008 WSOP Main Event.

Before that elimination though, Kara, who hosts EPT tourneys, and Tiffany Michelle, who hosts for Poker News, squared off in some hot girl on girl hosting action.

The action between them was fast and furiousTM. While we know Kara won't win The Last Woman StandingTM, will she win the battle of the poker hottie hosts?

Good For Poker(TM)


In what can only be described as "good for pokerTM," Shawn "Bad for Poker" Sheikhan has been eliminated from the 2008 WSOP Main Event.

That loud "whew" you just heard was Matt Maranz and the rest of the ESPN crew, knowing they won't have to put him on TV and do the "Shawn Sheikhan Story."

At the break, a different kind of red terror, Nikolay Losev, is the chip leader with 3,500,000.

Poker hottie Tiffany Michelle is sixth overall now with 3M. Cristian Dragomir The Fragrance is at 2,850,000. Our pick to win it David "Chino" Rheem is at 1,850,000. And Phil Hellmuth is back up to 1,280,000.

Uh Oh

James McManus is chipleader on Day 5 of the 2008 WSOPThis isn't cool. At all.

In what we can only assume is an all out assualt on the Entities who comprise Wicked Chops Poker, there are currently two gingers in the top 10 chip counts. In fact, James McManus (above) is chip leader at post time stacked at 3.4M. The other ginger in the top 10 is Mark Vos, a ginger, with just over 2M. Fortunately for all involved that still have a soul, Super Ginger has been eliminated.

Of the hot girls going deep and contending for The Last Woman StandingTM, Tiffany Michelle, a woman, still leads the pack stacked at 1.7M. Kara Scott, a woman, is at 345,000. In all, a surprisingly high total of five women remain. For this late in any tournament the WSOP Main Event, that's gotta be some sort of record. Probably smashes whatever the old record is, actually.

Mike "The Mouth" Matusow is currently at the featured table with 660,000. Also at 660,000 is Allen Cunningham. Our pick (now to win it) David "Chino" Rheem is at 1,880,000. Cristian Dragomir The Fragrance is still doing well with 2,150,000. Shawn "Bad for Poker" Sheikhan has 1,710,000. And still in the hunt for bracelet #12 is Phil Hellmuth with 610,000.

And we are pleased to report that Deng Dong is still alive with 240,000.

Only 144 remain. Get full chip counts here.

2008 WSOP Day 4 Wrap: Pros, Gingers, and Hot Girls Go Deep

Jeremy Joseph, David Chino Rheem among 2008 WSOP Day 4 chip leaders.Things are looking good for those hoping for a star-studded final table. Then again, we saw this last year, and it didn't quite work out that way.

Regardless, the remaining 195 names in the 2008 WSOP Main Event have plenty of potential.

Leading the pack is the Mormony named (and new Davidson Matthew Club member) Jeremy Joseph with 3.1M. He's followed by Cristian Dragomir, who might actually be a fragrance, with 2,065,000. In third overall is our pick to go deep, David "Chino" Rheem, with 2M. We've been known for our wicked predicting chops, but our Rheem call may be the coup de gras for us if he keeps this going.

Big named big stacks abound, which is really "good for pokerTM." Some of those keeping The Year of the ProTM alive include (all unofficial chip counts for now) Brandon Cantu (1,580,000), Shawn "Bad for Poker" Sheikhan (1,500,000), Alex Outhred (1,500,000), Mark Vos, a ginger (1,373,000), Gus Hansen (1,360,000), Victor Ramdin (1,350,000), Allen Cunningham (1,270,000), Matt Matros (1,120,000), Jeff Madsen (770,000), Chip Jett (620,000, Phil Hellmuth (570,000), Mike "The Mouth" Matusow (550,000), and Hoyt Corkins (330,000).

Hot girls Tiffany Michelle and Kara Scott are still going deep with 909,000 and 355,000 respectively.

And Deng Dong still remains with 425,000.

Cards flyTM again sometime tomorrow.

Tiffany Michelle Wants to Be the Last Ho Standing

Tiffany Michelle looking good, looking good going into Day 5 of the Main Event.

Forget The Last Woman StandingTM, FOWCP Tiffany Michelle told us just a minute ago that she wants to be the last "Ho" standing in the 2008 WSOP Main Event, a not-so-veiled reference to her lesbian lover close friend Maria Ho who won the women's title at last year's Main Event. Or in general terms, finished 38th place overall.

Tiffany, who ended the day with 909,000 in chips, is just one of five women left in the field, and is joined by Kara Scott as the only two really hot girls still in. Of note, one other woman is doable but more in a "girl next door" or "please don't think us getting it on last night meant anything but if you want to have sex right now, I'm kinda drunk and I think you're sweet, so let's go do it" kind of way.

Below are some photos from today of Tiffany and Kara, including one with Tiffany hanging between hands with our good friend Alex Outhred who heads into Day 5 with 1.38 million in chips.

Girl on Girl at the 2008 WSOP: Tiffany Michelle Interview with Michele Lewis

The below is WCP contributor Michele Lewis' first interview in her "Girl on Girl" series at the WSOP. Stay tuned for more interviews with some of the coolest, hottest girls in poker. Check out Michele's blog at

Tiffany Michelle at the World Series of Poker

I finally had a chance to chat with Tiffany Michelle (above), known on WCP as the girl with two first names. We hooked up in the quiet WSOP Poker Kitchen this week to discuss the little things in life. Tiffany Michelle is a sweet, friendly Gemini who enjoys singing, acting, music and loves animals… OK, I’ll stop with the Playboy-like description. Seriously though, she does have many talents, including playing the piano since she was six, a self-taught guitarist and a successful songwriter.

After finding success in the Hollywood cash games and live tournaments at the Hustler Casino she suddenly found herself on the Bombshell Poker Team for a week at the 2006 WSOP. A simple one week WSOP gig multiplied into six when she was approached by Nick Geber to interview for Bluff. Today, Tiffany Michelle spends less time playing live poker as she’s traveling the world interviewing pros for PokerNews; however, don’t be fooled as she’s often online playing under the name HotChipz. And even though she looks like just another pretty face, she is in fact, well spoken and takes pride in her work.

Interested in finding out what she thinks of the 2008 World Series of Poker, who is the sexpot of poker, what she looks for in a guy and how you may or may not get a date with her through MySpace? Then hump to the jump...
