Today the popular reporter and host at PokerNews Kristy Arnett announced on Twitter that she is leaving PokerNews to pursue other dreams. Kristy Arnett has been working for the website for four years, reporting from tournaments all around the world. Over the years, Kristy has covered WSOP, EPT and WPT tournaments among others from every destination on the planet and had the chance to interview both recreational and professional poker players. She claims that Phil Ivey is the most difficult to interview and Jason Mercier and Maria Ho some of her personal favorites.
In a video posted on YouTube the fun-loving reporter has compiled some of her favorite clips from the last four years:
Besides Kristy’s video reporting she has been the host of the weekly PokerNews Podcast and two years ago she launched her own strategy podcast, Strategy With Kristy. In the strategy podcasts she’s been covering all aspects of online and live poker, as well as sharing her own ups and downs as a poker player.
On Twitter Kristy Arnett wrote that she’s not planning to quit playing poker any time soon. And that seems to be a good idea as Kristy won the MiniFTOPS Event #12, a Heads-Up Shootout with over 4000 runners, in 2010. In 2013 she participated in the televised cash game Poker Night in America together with the likes of Mick ‘The Mouth’ Matusow, Shaun Deeb, Gavin Smith, Greg Mueller and Matz Glantz. The show is yet to air, but you can check it out here: pokernight.com.
With fellow hostess, the colorful Sarah ‘Aunty Chardonnay’ Grant, Kristy runs the website Pretty Broad where they discuss topics like relationships, sex, traveling and health: prettybroad.com
Did we mention that Kristy is also very dedicated to fitness and healthy living? No wonder she needs a little more time to pursue all her dreams. We wish Kristy the best of luck.
