Color Up updates: Vanessa Selbst endorses Color Up, plus our new campaign

vanessa-Selbst-Poker PlayerOn Monday, poker pro Vanessa Selbst Tweeted about Color Up, “I came across these @colorup poker flash cards... they seem like a cool way to learn impt info for beginning players."

In addition to this public positivity from a poker celebrity (thanks, Vanessa!), Color Up is very excited to announce a new campaign we have had in the works for some time. We love our products and have enjoyed the fact that we have been helping people across the world learn the game we all love so much.

However, we want to expand our horizons and start to get the word out that Color Up’s poker flash cards are the best way to learn how to play poker. In order to achieve our goals, we have launched a campaign to raise $8,000. This new funding will allow us to finally get the exposure we feel we deserve and best of all, continue improving on an already great product.

You can imagine our team’s excitement and joy to see my favorite player talk about yours truly. Those who know me (Sandy, the founder of Color Up), would without a doubt tell you that I am a huge fan of Selbst and consider her to be one the best players in the world. To see someone of her stature talk about my company was one of the proudest moments in my life.

Vanessa Selbst tweet about colorup cardsIf you don’t know who Vanessa Selbst is – well, that’s just ridiculous, of course you do. But in case you forgot:  she is considered one of the top poker players today. The native New Yorker has already won more than $7 million in tournament prizes and she’s only 29. Most recently, Selbst won the high roller event at the Poker Stars Caribbean Adventure for over $1.4 million. Prior to this, she won her second WSOP bracelet, showing she’s not just a one trick pony and knows how to play allthe games by taking down the 10 game mixed event. She’s also a graduate of Yale law and speaks often about her passion for social justice (how cool, a poker millionaire who cares about people, too).

With over 50 cashes on her tournament resume, Vanessa has proven she’s here to stay and ready to be one of the best players in the world. She’s a feared cash game player and one of the nicest people you will ever meet. You can read more about Vanessa and follow her poker journeys on her website, Vanessaselbstpoker.

I’d like to conclude by thanking all those who have supported Color Up during this great ride. We hope to be around for a long time and with the support we have gotten already, we believe we have the ability to be in the poker industry for a long time. Supporting our campaign will get you great Color Up gear (clothes, poker flash cards, even a customized chip set), plus our eternal gratitude. Thanks for supporting Color Up.
