Annie Duke on strategy and the life of a professional poker player

Annie Duke is one of the most notable names in the game of poker. A veteran of the game, Duke thought it was time to separate the pros from the thousands of amateurs flooding big time poker tournaments like the World Series of Poker. To do that she formed the Epic Poker League for pros to compete in. The league she hopes will create a system where players have to prove their worth before being able to compete. Duke has also written a strategy guide for players. Annie Duke joins us to talk about her league, her book, and what it's like playing against chauvinists who think they have her figured out because she's a woman.
