Tanya Masters Joins Irish Poker Tour Team Pro
Tanya Masters was born to play poker. Raised in Dublin with a poker-mad father and three poker-mad brothers she had no choice. She started playing official tournaments in Tallaght 15 years ago but she arrived there with years of experience from playing tough games at the kitchen table. The male Masters have had numerous big-time tournament victories but Tanya is ready to blaze her own trail of success. She is determined that the opportunities offered by her new status as an Irish Poker Tour Team Pro will allow her to become the top Master on the Irish poker scene.
She is also keen to promote women’s participation and profile in Irish poker. Tanya is the Ambassador for and the driving force behind the Women of Poker Championship at the Killarney Festival and aims to make the poker scene a much more welcoming and encouraging place for female players.
Tanya has a wonderfully friendly and enthusiastic nature but do not be fooled; she will happily skin you at the poker table, always with a broad smile.
