Jen Shahade: Poker’s Double Agent

The 2-time Women's Chess Champ is repping PokerStars and Run It Once, but how long can that last?

That’s right… US Women’s Chess Champion turned poker pro, Jen Shahade is sponsored by two online poker companies: PokerStars and Run It Once Poker.

Jen lists herself as a PokerStars Ambassador on her Twitter profile. Plus, she is part of the massive Platinum Pass give away to promote the PokerStars Player Championship, where a $30,000 Platinum Pass package to the Bahamas is being awarded to the person that wins the competition for creating a game that combines aspects of two of her passions, poker and chess.

But she is also listed as a Run It Once Elite Pro on her latest video on Bet Sizing (which is a must-watch for those that take an analytical approach to poker). Now Jen has been making vids for RIO since ealy 2015 as far as we can tell, but with Phil Galfond and crew getting ready to launch a real money online poker room real soon, we are wondering if Jen will eventually have to pick a side.
