Stomach stapling and poker?

One of the identity theory staff members sent me this Chicago Tribune article, "The Making of a Poker Star", and said, rightly, that it would interest me "in an anthropological kind of
way."

The article covers the Hollywood-ization of poker and focuses on Annie Duke as an example of the changing face of poker.

[Annie Duke's] face adorns the cover of "Tournament Poker 2005," a video game by Plainfield's Donohoe Digital and Eagle Games. She is managed by Brian Balsbaugh, a former golf agent who has built a stable of high-profile card players. She also is represented by the heavy-hitting talent agency International Creative Management.

There's a book coming out next year with her name on the spine, and Duke is developing both a movie and television sitcom based on her life (the latter through "Friends" star Lisa Kudrow's production company and NBC).

Although she became poker's highest-earning female moneymaker of all time in 2004 -- capping her achievement with a win at ESPN's Tournament of Champions and capturing a World Series of Poker bracelet -- Duke says her success isn't solely based on her card sense.

"I'm the right story at the right time," Duke says.

To play poker online is an easy way to obtain fast cash provided a good strategy is used. To deceive an opponent one has to be patient in engaging other players. Poker players who resort to emotions during the game are the ones who often loose. poker online terpercya
