Look, you can skip this. Don’t watch this month old video – it’s not worth it. It’s good enough to know that leading expert in national and global news, CNN, decided to put “decision making coach and renowned professional poker player” Annie Duke on a panel of “negotiating experts” (which includes Les from “Hardcore Pawn”) to talk about how to fix the US Federal Budget crisis.
The same Annie Duke that shilled for one of the most corrupt online sites in history, UltimateBet. The same Annie Duke that made the media rounds convincing people that the “new UB” was different and promoted that it was safe. The same Annie Duke that started and ultimately bankrupted the Epic Poker League while pocketing nearly $300k in salary for herself. The same professional poker player who hasn’t notched a single recorded cash since 2010 and played only one reported tournament in all of 2011 and it was a charity tournament.
Furthermore, Duke’s press team,or possibly even Duke herself, decided to push through an egocentric press release nearly a month after the silly segment aired.
Annie Duke is who CNN turns to in order to get a poker perspective on the Federal Budget Crisis. She must have said yes when nobody asked.
So, you see, don’t bother watching.
