Cyndy Violette (born August 19, 1959 in Queens, NY) is an American professional poker player who won a World Series of Poker bracelet in 2004.

Cyndy often played poker with family members as a child. Her family relocated to Las Vegas when she was 12 years old; Cyndy took to playing casino poker once she reached the legal age. She spent a short time as a casino employee, working as a blackjack and poker dealer.

Poker career

In 1984, Cyndy cashed in a poker tournament in Lake Tahoe and used the proceeds to launch a professional poker career. She later took the top prize of $74,000 at a seven-card stud tournament at the Golden Nugget; at the time this was the biggest tournament prize ever won by a woman. Shortly thereafter, she married her second husband, and took a two year hiatus from poker.

In 1990, Cyndy returned to the poker scene by winning $62,000 in a tournament at Caesars Palace. She maintained her residence in Washington state but split time between Las Vegas and Los Angeles.

In 1993, Cyndy divorced her husband and relocated to Atlantic City. She continued to work the poker tournament circuit and was a regular participant in the World Series of Poker (WSOP). She has also competed on the World Poker Tour.

At the 2004 World Series of Poker, Cyndy won a bracelet in the seven-card stud high-low split tournament. She was one of three women (Kathy Liebert and Annie Duke being the other two) to win a gold bracelet in an open tournament in that year's WSOP.

Violette is a team member of the Full Tilt Poker online poker site.

As of 2008, her total live tournament winnings exceed $1,200,000. Her 28 cashes at the WSOP account for $841,333 of those winnings.[1]
