Samantha Abernathy is a 25-year old gorgeous Poker player who’s been making headlines lately due to her impeccable Poker skills and prop bets with Dan Bilzerian.
Samantha is from Las Vegas. Before starting playing professional Poker, Samantha used to work full time as a graphics designer in a digital agency, making games, software and apps. When Samantha decided to play Poker, she resigned from her job and started to freelance with Poker. This helped her work more creatively in her professional and play Poker with more focus. Samantha says that during her job she realized that 9-to-5 wasn’t for her. She was on a holiday trip with Steve Aoki and Waka Flocka. Steve and Waka decided to go to Russia for winter Olympics, but Samantha decided to stay in Florida. One evening, bored, she went to a Poker room and somehow fell in love with it. But Samantha says that working as a UX designer in the past helped her in Poker. She developed her left brain (logical) skills and right brain (creativity, intuitiveness) during her job years. These skills now help her in Poker.
Samantha says that music and dance inspire her. She thinks that people who are genius always have an element of ‘craziness’ in them.
Samantha says that she’s always comfortable on the females table. But when she’s playing Poker with men, she always has headphones on. Not because she wants to listen to songs while playing, but she uses headphones as a barrier. Samantha says that it isn’t easy for women to find backers in the Poker industry. She loves men who treat women as equal players on the table.
Samantha mostly plays $2-$5 and $5-$10 no-limit hold’em cash games. Samantha’s lifetime earnings stand at a whopping $545,427.
Samantha loves the competition and pain involved in Poker. She was a gymnast in the past. She says that she had two Russian coaches who helped her develop a competitive mindset.
Samantha and Dan Bilzerian are close friends (No, not the way you are thinking). Last year, Dan offered $10,000 to Samantha if she could complete a bike ride from Las Vegas to Los Angeles. Samantha won the bet.
