Trishelle Cannatella Wins Trash Talk Championships

At first glance, you might think that being the title holder for the Trash Talk Championships would be something you’d want in your resume. But really, it is anything but. The Trash Talk Championship is a tournament held in the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. It’s not really a battle of words as its name may imply, but a battle of poker skills. It’s a charity tournament which is held to raise money for the Sharon Osbourne Colon Cancer Program. The tournament attracted a field of more than 60 – all of whom were bested by Trishelle Cannatella.

What is the Trash Talk Championship?

As mentioned, the Trash Talk Championship is a charity tournament that is meant to raise money for the Sharon Osbourne Colon Cancer Program of the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. It has a buy-in of $1000 + $70, and it usually draws celebrities and poker pros alike. However, since this is a charity tournament, the games are mostly just for fun, so it does not really matter much who wins or loses. As such, the atmosphere in the Hard Rock Hotel was very light and friendly. Sixty players battled it out, with Trishelle Cannatella coming out on top. At the end, they were able to raise more than $11,000 for the foundation. Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne, the one’s behind this tournament, were not able to make an appearance, but they did send a message expressing their thanks to the participants.

Who Went to the Trash Talk Championship?

Still, though they were playing for charity, Trishelle Cannatella’s victory was still very impressive, considering how big of a leap she did to get to first place when she almost did not make it into the final table. She was able to defeat a whole range of celebrities, from Curb our Enthusiasm’s Cheryl Hines and Shaun Sipos of Melrose Place to Nancy Cartwright, voice actress from the famous cartoon series, The Simpsons. Moreover, she was able to defeat several poker pros like the famous Amazing Race duo, Tiffany Michelle and Maria Ho. She was also able to beat Kathy Liebert, Antonio Esfandiari, Andrew Robl, Alec Torelli, and much more.

One of the reasons why there were so many pros in the tournament was because Victory Poker was a sponsor. The Victory Poker Team were all in attendance, especially since the after party of the Trash Talk Championship also served as an official launching for the said site.

With this victory safely tucked under Trishelle’s belt, she earned not just the title of Trash Talk Champion, but also a seat in the WPT Celebrity Invitational and a nifty 20-pound custom crystal trophy.
