Amanda continued to be the featured host of Fox’s “Big Game,” which was sponsored by PokerStars.com, although they had to use the PokerStars.net logo to appease media regulators in the United States. The “Big Game” began in 2010, and lasted two seasons. The Game featured an amateur taking on five poker professionals. The line-up included a who’s who of poker celebrities, including Barry Greenstein, Phil Hellmuth, and of course Daniel Negreanu. With poker’s Black Friday on April 15, 2011, televised poker as we know it, including the “Big Game” on Fox, ended.
After the “Big Game” was cancelled in the spring of 2011, Amanda became a sponsored pro on Bodog. It was not bad considering her complete lack of any poker tournament success whatsoever, other than a 45th place in the WSOP ladies only event in 2008. She cashed for $3,682 in the tournament. Later, in 2012, it appears Amanda did work, photo shoots and blog postings, for online gaming and poker site Bovada.com. She told Bluff that her favorite tournament to cover was the Aussie Millions, but that her favorite tournament location was Aruba.
Star 104.3, a top 40 radio station in Asheville, North Carolina, WQNQ, announced on December 31st, 2014, that Amanda was joining their morning team as a co-host.
She began a part time return to poker in March of 2015, taking a gig as a sideline hostess for the Heartland Poker Tour during the HPT’s stop at the Indigo Sky Casino in Oklahoma. Since then Amanda has continued this reporting work at other HPT stops.
