GSN to Air Poker Special With Top Female Poker Player Annie Duke in 'ANNIE DUKE TAKES ON THE WORLD'

Regan Burns Serves as Co-Host/Special Airs May 1

PASADENA, Calif., Jan. 13 -- Leading female poker player Annie Duke is starring in GSN's ANNIE DUKE TAKES ON THE WORLD, a hybrid poker show allowing amateur poker players to play against a world class professional. The announcement was made today at the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour by Ian Valentine, Senior Vice President of Programming, GSN.

ANNIE DUKE TAKES ON THE WORLD will feature Duke as host and Regan Burns ("Oblivious," "Titus") as co-host, both taunting and giving inside tips on how to play No Limit Texas Hold 'Em with the best. Four amateur poker players will compete for the chance to play Texas Hold 'Em one-on-one against Duke. The show will air on Monday, May 1 from 9-10 PM, ET/PT.

In the preliminary round, three amateurs will compete for the right to go head-to-head with Duke, while she comments on and critiques the play. The last player remaining at the table will play heads up poker with Duke in a high stakes game of bluff, wit and cards.

Duke is most renowned for winning $2 million in the 2004 No-Limit Texas Hold 'Em invitation-only WSOP Tournament of Champions, and is sought after for her vast poker skills and knowledge, coaching the likes of Ben Affleck and Matt Damon on their poker game.

Executive producers are Andrew Golder ("Win Ben Stein's Money," "Celebrity Blackjack"), Joe Reitman and Duke.
