Abbey Daniels is a smart and savvy business woman who grew to the distinguished ranks as a female CEO, successfully taking companies to become highly profitable leaders in their industry. Abbey’s leadership abilities have earned her consistent advancement and accolades.  She is recognized as a highly successful female executive and listed in the “Who’s Who Among Female Executives”, The Chief Executive Forum, and the winner of multiple awards in the business community.

Growing up, card playing was a part of her childhood. Her dad played poker and her mom was a lifetime bridge master. There were routine family poker games and even at a young age Abbey had what it took to be a winner. While Abbey went on to college at James Madison and then entered the business world, Abbey always had a passion for cards and began to play poker as a hobby in her free time. Her skills as a CEO of taking calculated risks, and reading people, were evident at the tables. Her first tournament was the $10k 2010 WPT Doyle Brunson event at Bellagio and she cashed by knocking out many of the big poker names. From the time she sat at that tournament, she found a love, passion, obsession for poker. She began playing cash and reading and learning all she could toward that goal of excellence. Six months later, Abbey entered the $10k 2011 WPT Hard Rock Showdown and used her skills to beat over 400 other players (mostly top pros) to make the final televised table. Over the next couple of years Abbey has made numerous final tables, cashes and wins to her credit.

Today, Abbey is a successful tournament and cash player who is passionate about teaching other women to become highly successful at the tables.
