Tila Tequila - Sexy Poker Player

Nguyen was born in Singapore to French Vietnamese parents, where her family emigrated from Vietnam after the Vietnam War. When she was one year old, she and her family lived in a neighborhood in Houston until they were admitted to a gated community run by a strict Buddhist temple. The family left the community when Nguyen was eight.

While in middle school, Nguyen became a tomboy and was eventually sent to a boarding school for six months for her combative behavior before transferring to another school. While in high school, she used her sister's identification card to enter nightclubs, where she began taking drugs and joined a gang. In an interview with Import Tuner, Nguyen said she had been searching for a sense of identity: "I was really confused then, at first I thought I was black, then I thought I was Hispanic and joined a cholo gang". Later, friends outside the gang briefly helped turn her life around. However, her past caught up with her, and she fled to Queens, New York at the age of 16.

Tila Tequila

The poker player known as Tila Tequila was born Thien Thanh Thi Nguyen on October 24th, 1981. She initially gained attention by posing for Playboy and later exploded onto the scene through her sexy MySpace page (over one million friends). She has since leveraged her popularity into a singing, modeling and acting career. Recently, Tila Tequila has also become involved with online poker and online casinos.

While Tila was born in Singapore, her family had originally migrated there from Vietnam following the Vietnam War. When she was only one year old, the family moved again - this time to a Buddhist community in the Houston suburb of Alief. The Nguyen family would leave the community when Tila was eight, moving elsewhere in the Houston area.

Heather Graham - Sexy Poker Player

Heather Graham was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to a family of Irish descent. Her family relocated repeatedly until settling down in Agoura Hills, California when she was nine years old. The eldest of two children, her younger sister, Aimee Graham, is also an actress and writer. Their mother, Joan, is a teacher and noted author of children's books, and father, James Graham, a retired FBI agent. The girls were raised with family values that followed a strict traditional Catholic upbringing. Graham graduated from Agoura High School in California in 1988. In 1986, she appeared on a special "Teen Week" episode of the NBC-TV game show Scrabble.

She was introduced to acting during the school production of Wizard of Oz. Then while still in school she appeared in numerous television commercials, the sitcom Growing Pains and several television movies. She debuted in the 1988 film License to Drive, which was a teen comedy starring Corey Haim and Corey Feldman. Her strict parents forbade her to appear in the 1989 black comedy Heathers, which had an expletive-rich script.

After high school, Graham enrolled in extension classes of the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) and studied English for two years. There she met actor James Woods. They became romantically involved during the time she was cast in the movie Diggstown, where he had landed the starring role. After two years there, Graham withdrew from school at UCLA to pursue acting full time, over her parents' objections. She then moved to Hollywood, where she worked different jobs while continuing to establish herself as an actress.

Her first film appearance was an uncredited cameo in Mrs. Soffel. After turning down the female lead role in Dirty Dancing, her second film appearance was in the television film Student Exchange. Graham was cast in a number of parts as a supporting actress including the part of Nadine in the 1989 film Drugstore Cowboy. In 1991, she appeared in the TV series Twin Peaks as Annie Blackburn, Dale Cooper's second-season love interest. Many became familiar with her for these two roles. Her breakthrough role proved to be that of 1970s porn starlet "Roller Girl" in 1997's Boogie Nights, in which she appeared in scenes with frontal nudity and received several award nominations. Her first starring role was in 1999 as Felicity Shagwell in Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me. She also appeared in the music video for Lenny Kravitz's cover of "American Woman" by The Guess Who.

I'm a demon poker player. For years I've had friends over to my house for poker sessions. Or I'll go to poker clubs, Contactmusic quoted her as saying.

I hardly ever lose money. I don't play for huge stakes - I'm too cautious for that. But I've often won hundreds of dollars. I always play sober. My weakness is a tendency to get too competitive, which means I lose my edge. I'm waiting to be invited to the tournaments that Brad Pitt organises. But I'd need to be careful. Those guys play for huge stakes. I'd be afraid of running a losing streak and ending up writing out huge IOUs," she added.

Jayde Nicole - Sexy Poker Player

Jayde Nicole began modeling for catalogs and fashion shows at the age of six. The following year, Nicole's family moved from Scarborough to Port Perry. When she turned 11, she stopped modeling for a time, as she was finding herself becoming "too mature to be doing kid's jobs."
When she was 15, a scout from a Toronto modeling agency spotted her outside the Air Canada Centre as she was leaving a concert and offered her an opportunity to return to modeling. Since then, Nicole has appeared in numerous publications and fashion shows. She created and owns her own agency, "A Touch of Class", based in Port Perry.

Nicole studied hotel management at George Brown College in Toronto, but dropped out to pursue a modeling career.

It all started when Jayde Nicole met the “All In Magazine” publisher, Kasey Thompson, and Nicole agreed to do the “All In Magazine Project.” She started receiving personal training from one different professional poker player every month. During her first month she was trained by Jamie Gold, then it was Bluff Magazine’s Player of the Year David Chicotsky. The next one on the list is no other than the great Daniel Negreanu.

Her progress and results are being recorded on the “All In Magazine” pages and you can currently follow it. Jayde Nicole is a new poker player but we already saw her take a seat at the PokerStars “Million Dollar Challenge” alongside Daniel Negreanu and other pros. The sexy poker player said that it was hard to get the other players to take her seriously.

You can watch all of the action she got involved in during the TV broadcast of the PokerStars “Million Dollar Challenge.” She commented at an interview that she finds it more fun to flop top pair than to pose topless.

Now for the future you can expect to find her playing online at PokerStars, as she said she will be playing around 3 tournaments every week and she will also attend the Caribbean Challenge in the Bahamas in January 2010.

Eva Longoria - Sexy Poker Player

Eva Longoria Parker

Celebrity like Eva Longoria Parker don't have to be a poker pros to get attention playing it. Some go a step or two further and have people come to them, such as the case of Eva Longoria-Parker, one of the Desperate Housewives cast, together with her San Antonio Spurs point guard husband Tony Parker and their night of charity poker.

Eva takes her poker very seriously. She is a skilled Texas hold’em player, a real competitor, and absolutely plays to win. You should have seen her play poker against her husband, Tony, and his two brothers. What a war! In any case, about two hours into the tournament, with the blinds at 500-1,000, Player A, in middle position, opened for 3,000 with A-8. Eva, from the button, moved all in for her last 11,000, and Player B — in the small blind — called off his last 9,000 with A-J. After a minute, Player A called the 11,000, and the hands were flipped up. Two queens for the queen! The board ran out 10-9-4-4-7, and Eva’s pocket queens scooped a big pot.

Eva established Eva’s Heroes after watching her sister grow up with an intellectual disability: “She has given me so much inspiration and hope to face everyday with the strength and courage she has had her whole life. She has never seen herself with a disability and only sees the good in everyone and everything.”

Eva continues to be included in lists of Hollywood’s Most Beautiful and was listed #1 in Maxim’s Hottest Female Stars#9 in the magazine’s Hot 100 of 2007 list of 2005 and 2006, becoming the first woman to top the list in two consecutive years.

It has been rumored that she will play Janet Van Dyne aka The Wasp in the upcoming Avengers film due to the fact that she has been spotted reading core Avengers titles such as The New Avengers annual and Marvel Adventures: Avengers.

Paris Hilton - Sexy Poker Player

Paris Hilton began modeling as a child, initially at charity events. When she was 19, she signed with Donald Trump's modeling agency, T Management.[14] Hilton has also worked with Ford Models in New York, Models 1 Agency in London, Nous Model Management in Los Angeles, and Premier Model Management in London. She has appeared in numerous advertising campaigns, including Iceberg Vodka, GUESS, Tommy Hilfiger, Christian Dior, and Marciano. In 2001, Hilton began to develop a reputation as a socialite, being identified as "New York's leading It Girl" whose fame was beginning to "extend beyond the New York tabloids". She has appeared in several magazines, including the April 2004 issue of Maxim.

Paris and sister Nicky garnered reams of bad press as notorious socialites, famed for rudeness, dancing on top of bar banquettes, going topless and parading around in designer T-shirts with slogans like, "Got Blow?"

Perhaps in an effort to clean up her image, Paris has tried to make her mark by working on more substantial projects. In 2001, she had a cameo appearance in Ben Stiller's fashion spoof, 'Zoolander'. Other appearances include a role as a strung-out supermodel in the film short 'QIK2JDG', 'The Hillz' (with boyfriend Jason Shaw), 'Wonderland', and the big-screen adaptation of the Dr. Seuss classic, 'The Cat in the Hat'. The FOX reality show, 'The Simple Life', which is based on 1960’s sitcom 'Green Acres', and features Paris Hilton and Lionel Ritchie’s daughter, Nichole, living on a farm, has been a huge hit.

On top of her burgeoning acting career, Paris has designed a high-end collection of purses for Tokyo label Samantha Thavasa. Attempts to start a modelling company and a makeup line have not succeeded.

in 2004, Paris Hilton is the founder of Heiress Records, a sub-label of Warner Bros. Records. Though Heiress Records' only release as of yet has been Paris, Hilton has said that she plans to sign new artists in the future. Hilton began work on an album in 2004. The album; Paris, was released on August 22, 2006. Before release, Hilton hinted that her album would feature a number of genres, such as pop, reggae, and hip-hop.

After a while according to the NY Post, "Socialite Paris Hilton is addicted to playing poker after recently being taught the game." Her & her sister Nicky have hosted a poker tournament or two, but I had no idea poor, poor Paris had it so bad. Hilton is quoted as saying, ""I'm obsessed with poker. It's my favorite game now." I wonder if she says "I've got me sisters!" when she gets a pair of queens?

Anna Benson - Sexy Poker Player

Anna Benson was born outside of Atlanta, Georgia, she moved out of her parents' house at the age of sixteen. In 1993, she married a nineteen-year old dentist. Think about that, a nineteen year old dentist. Either this dude is a super genius who decided instead of helping society he would become a dentist or there are some people in Georgia walking around with some fucked up teeth. They divorced a year later but not before she squeezed out his baby.

In 1998, she met then-minor league pitcher Kris Benson. The two began dating and were married in October 1999. They have two children together, that gives her a total of three kids for all you nineteen year old dentists out there.

Anna Benson


The Pirates traded Kris to the Mets and the New York spotlight gave Anna the exposure she needed. She posed for FHM magazine and was named baseball's hottest wife. Her telling interview on the Howard Stern show brought her even more notoriety. She famously quipped that if she ever caught her husband cheating she would "have sex with all members of the Mets organization, including the grounds crew".

World of Poker

An anonymous fan bet that she would win the World Series of Poker, fronted her entry, and challenged her to test her skills with the cards. And did she ever! By entering the 2005 W.S.O.P with just under a month of training, she gained nationwide respect by lasting until the end of the third day. She beat out 1200 other players and shocked the poker professionals that gathered to watch her.

Anna caught the poker playing bug and the poker world will never be the same. Besides occasional tournament play, she has recently moved on to $10-$20 no-limit cash games. Watch out boys… poker is not just a man’s game anymore.
