Professional poker player Matt Vengrin is taking a break from holding Kings and Queens to help crown the next Miss California Teen USA. The Absolute Poker pro will be a celebrity judge in this weekend's Miss California Teen USA pageant. 

"As a poker player, I know how fierce competition can be," said Vengrin. "Just like playing in the World Series of Poker, these girls are in for a grueling but fun weekend and I'm excited to be an integral part of the experience."

Matt Vengrin is one of online poker's most successful young poker players. In a little over two years, the 24-year-old has won nearly $2 million playing poker at Absolute Poker, a number of other sites and at land-based casinos. In 2009 alone, the online poker pro has amassed six top 10 finishes in several popular online poker tournaments, including a 1st place finish in a recent No Limit Hold'em event for $61,600 in February and a 2nd place finish in a $100k tournament for $21,327 in January. 

Most recently, Vengrin finished strong in the Main Event of the 2009 Aruba Poker Classic, a $5,500 No Limit Hold'em tournament held at the Radisson Aruba Resort & Casino. Vengrin collected $13,820 for his 27th place finish. 


Being surrounded by beautiful women is anything but foreign to Vengrin. The poker professional sits alongside Lacey Jones, one of the hottest women in poker, on Absolute Poker's team of pros. Most recently, Reality TV bombshell Trishelle signed on as Absolute Poker's celebrity endorser, making the team even more attractive.

Online poker players at Absolute Poker can employ the online poker site's free Absolute Buddy software to discover where Matt Vengrin is seated. He will be featured in red text while playing at Absolute Poker's tables under the name vengmoney.
