Online Poker Operators Purple Lounge Sign Michelle Orpe

Orpe is a professional player and has taken part in the European Poker Tour as well as worked as a commentator on Poker Night Live.

Purple Lounge, operators of online poker rooms and online casinos, have entered into an agreement with poker player/model Michelle Orpe. Under the terms reached, Purple Lounge will sponsor Orpe's appearances and entries into top-dollar poker tournaments around the world; in return, Orpe will become the face of Purple Lounge. 

Orpe is a professional player and has taken part in the European Poker Tour as well as worked as a commentator on Poker Night Live. The British native had tried a variety of odd jobs, including playing in a pop band called "Frenzz", when Poker News offered her a regular slot, and trained her for 2 1/2 years with seven different poker experts as tutors.

Purple Lounge is sensitive to the fact that a growing portion of their membership is female, and run special women-only tournaments and battles of the sexes, pitting men against women.

Orpe's website offers private tutoring in poker, as well as her services as a dealer for hire, for either public or private events. On her blog she dreams wistfully that someone might recognize her talent and send her playing around the world, so Purple Lounge is a dream come true for Orpe.

Purple Lounge, through a partnership with Quintessentially, offers lifestyle services and other features beyond online gaming, so as to be a complete package for players.
