Tiffany Michelle, the hot poker girl known as "Hot Chips" because of her role as the hottest young female in the poker community. Her grandfather and brother taught her to play texas holdem poker when she was a child, but she started professionally in the year 2005.

Born and raised in Los Angeles Tiffany Michelle began her career at the early age of ten. Her talent on singing and dancing made her a performer on stage in theatrical shows and toured across the nation. Tiffany Michelle is also a certified beauty queen. She joined and won in different beauty pageant like Miss Teen Newhall, Miss Teen Santa Clarita Valley, and was a finalist in the Miss Teen California pageant where she won the Miss Congeniality award. She completed a two-year program in theater from College of the Canyons after graduating in high school. She also attended UCLA where in she majored in film and television.

In 2005, Tiffany got back into poker by playing some of her actor friends in Hollywood. Even though she cleaned up regularly, she has stated they kept her around because they liked having a girl at the table. She played in cash games for about a year. It was during this time that she began to take the game seriously and pay attention to other players. Soon after, she entered her first tournament in Las Vegas at Harrah’s Casino, playing for the BombshellPoker Team. They had been looking for another pretty face and contacted her after they heard that she played poker. Tiffany did well enough at that tournament that she participated in several more, smaller events. She even played in a few charity events.

In 2006, she got a job with Bluff Radio’s broadcast team providing coverage for the World Series of Poker on Sirius satellite radio. After that she became an on-camera host for PokerNews.com and covered the World Series of Poker, the World Poker Tour, European Poker Tour Grand Final, and the World Series of Poker Europe. While she worked as a host for PokerNews, she continued to play online, in Los Angeles, and at various tournaments. She even appeared during the fourth season of GSN’s The World Series of Blackjack.

In 2008, Tiffany gained instant fame and notoriety at the 2008 World Series of Poker. At the $10,000 No Limit Texas Hold’Em main event, Tiffany was looking like she might make history. The field was a staggering 6,844 competitors. Tiffany fought her way through and by the seventh day was in third place in chips with only 27 players remaining. She was the last woman standing and many hoped she would become the first woman to win a WSOP Main Event. It wasn’t in the cards and Tiffany busted out in 17th place. She took home $334,534 and a great deal of attention.

Tiffany also drew some controversy and criticism from her WSOP appearance. PokerStars had paid for her buy-in into the main event and for the first few days of the event, she wore clothing displaying the PokerNews logo. Before the final day of the event, after she started to gain media attention for her performance, she was approached by and made a deal with UltimateBet.com, whose logo suddenly appeared on her gear. After she busted out, PokerNews accused her of selling out and failing to represent the company that paid for her buy-in. Tiffany claimed that even though they provided her entry fee, there was no exclusive contract. The matter is currently being investigated by the Kahnawake Gaming Commision.
