Description

Annie Duke, Phil Hellmuth, Chris Moneymaker-it's a safe bet that, until recently, these were not household names. Today, however, the chips are flying and poker players are well known to millions of people, thanks to the emergence of televised tournaments like Bravo's Celebrity Poker Showdown, the Travel Channel's World Poker Tour and the World Series of Poker on ESPN, which tripled its poker coverage in 2004 and earned its best ratings for an original series ever. When NBC broadcast a special World Poker Tour battle of champions opposite the pregame show of the 2004 Super Bowl, an estimated 10 million people watched. In the Poker 2006 Calendar, readers can learn the lingo (the 9 and 5 cards are called a Dolly Parton), take tips from the pros (in high-stakes games, fold a lot of hands right away or you'll find yourself trying to win by catching particular cards that are in short supply), and take trivia quizzes (Question: What United States president used his poker winnings to fund his first campaign for Congress?*). Poker is a craze that shows no sign of folding and the Poker 2006 Calendar holds the winning hand.show more
