Shannon Elizabeth, a successful Hollywood actress who is beginning to make her mark as a professional poker player, has signed a contract with Mansion poker. Mansion officially announced the deal this week confirming that they were sponsoring the American Pie actress.
Elizabeth joined Mansion’s official “First Ambassador,” UK star Marc Goodwin, at a breakfast Monday morning where the new deal was officially announced to the public. Although Elizabeth first came to prominence in 1999 with her appearance in American Pie, she has also several other major film credits to her name including: American Pie 2, Scary Movie, Thir13en Ghosts,Tomcats, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, Love Actually, and more recently Confessiona of an American Bride.
Aside from her work as a film star on the big screen, she has made several TV appearances as a poker player, most importantly in 2007 on NBC during the NBC National Heads-Up Poker Championship. This tournament has been her best yet making it all the way to the semi-finals where she was eliminated by Paul ‘kwickfish’ Wasicka. Not only did she make it all the way to the semis, she also took out multiple WSOP bracelet winners Barry Greenstein, Jeff Madsen and Humberto Brenes.
