Bodog Poker has been making a serious effort to push into the Asian online gambling market lately. And Hong Kong-born Jay Tan has been a big part of this effort since she's a highly successful female player around the Macau area. That said, it was little surprise when Bodog re-signed the poker beauty to another one-year contract.

After the deal was completed, Bodog Poker Network President Jonas Odman discussed how valued Tan is by stating:

Jay has had a great year and is a natural in front of the camera as well as at the felt. She is an integral part of the ongoing Bodog Poker story, which has seen us create the only network made in Asia with the emerging Asian player in mind. We are thrilled to have her back on board for another year and hope she can light up the WSOP in the same way she did the Aussie Millions.

For Tan, re-signing the deal with Bodog was like extending her dream. "Becoming a sponsored player has always been a dream and to do so well in my first year was an unexpected bonus," said Tan. "I feel very at home with Bodog and look forward to carrying on where I left off."

Aside from her good looks and ties to the Asian poker community, Jay Tan is also a highly-coveted sponsored player because of her skills. Less than three months ago, she placed seventh in the Aussie Millions Main Event and collected US$158,355. Before this, she managed to place fifth in the Macau Poker Cup Red Dragon tournament, which was worth US$40,622.

In her career, Tan has cashed in 15 live poker tournaments and earned $252,707 in less than three years. Taking this into account, it's likely that we'll be seeing plenty more from Jay in the future.
