Having played most of her career on the site Musumeci credits the site with helping her career blossom. Therefore, when friend and fellow regular John Westra sent her a link to Bodog’s Facebook page she jumped at the chance to try and win the position of the new female poker pro.

In response to the news Musumeci said: “When you respond to an opportunity like this, no matter how confident you are in yourself and your abilities, there's always a little nagging doubt in the back of your mind. So when Bodog showed a genuine interest in me, I was ecstatic."

Adding that: "I've spent most of my online poker career playing at, and getting the chance to play as a pro for my favorite room was the opportunity of a lifetime. It also really showed me that, unlike a lot of other rooms, Bodog supports and invests in their players. I couldn't ask for a better home and look forward to kicking some butt in Bodog's name."

Known to the Poker world as "BodogMander", Musmeci will  join Veteran Poker Pro Evelyn Ng as a member of Team Bodog, as what Bodog describes as “easily the hands down most attractive team in the industry.”
