Dan Fleyshman, CEO of Who's your Daddy, an energy drinks firm based in San Diego, was crowned 2006 Chairman of Poker and $43,350 in prize money in Las Vegas on October 27.
Fleyshman battled against spirited CEO Dan Gunn, from Viatec based in Canada, for the title of Chairman of Poker and emerged triumphant.
'I've played this game with some of the icons of poker in the past and playing against CEOs was just as hard,' said Fleyshman. 'The elimination process was draining because these CEOs are good players.”
“At one point,” adds Fleyshman, tongue in cheek, “I took a sip of my Who’s Your Daddy Green Ice Tea for an extra boost and it gave me the energy I needed to finish the game and take home the championship.'
William Peraza Jr, founder and CEO of CEO Poker believes that the skills possessed by the CEOs make for an interesting game. 'These men battle in the board room every day, making decisions, analyzing competitors, just like in poker,” he said. “Each of the CEO participants battled relentlessly for the title of Chairman of Poker. They showed the same energy, skill, and quick decision making process seen in boardrooms.'
