Tiffany Michelle Wins Road2Recovery Charity Event


Road2Recovery is a charity that supports AMA Motocross and Supercross members who sustain career-ending injuries. They regularly hold live poker tournaments in order to collect the needed funds. The fourth such tournament was presented by Toyota Motors and held at the MGM Grand.

The event featured 67 participants and raised over $43,000. The tournament had a $300 buy-in and a $100 rebuy. Layne Flack recorded the highest number of rebuys at 23. The eventual winner Tiffany Michele was second in the rebuys tally with 19 rebuys. Motorcross riders, poker professionals and other celebrities participated for the cause. But at the poker tables it was understandably the poker pros that stole the limelight. They included the likes of Hoyt Corkins, Todd Brunson, Jennifer Harman, Maria Ho and Tiffany Michelle.

Tiffany won a $10,000 entry into the 2009 WSOP Main Event, a watch from Curtis, a crystal trophy and accommodations at the fabulous MGM Grand Las Vegas.
