Five months ago, I sat down to my first ever poker game as an adult.... I wrote a concept for a poker show.... I met all of these grown ups who did nothing but party, travel the world with their friends, drink, and play cards all night.... Being a professional poker player was like being Peter Pan - but rich.... I decided that I wanted to become a professional poker player.It's an interesting story. You can follow Christina Lindley's progress on her Bluff blog. It seems more likely to me that she will achieve success as a poker celebrity or hostess than a pro, but you can follow her results on The Hendon Mob poker database.
While at the World Series, I was walking around the main event room, and someone pulled me aside.... They asked me if I'd like to audition for the BEST DAMN POKER CHALLENGE with Annie Duke and Phil Helmuth. Well, I'll be damned ! I thought to myself. I auditioned, auditioned again, hada callback, and what do ya know I booked it.
