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. She was ranked . In honor of Maxim’s 100th issue in 2006, Longoria was featured on a 75-by-110-foot vinyl mesh replica of its January 2005 cover located in the Las Vegas desert. 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.
