“We are delighted to have Annie Duke back in Chicago. The last time she was here she participated in an event that raised over $5000 for local charities. It was a wonderful time, but several attendees wanted the opportunity to play for real against Annie. This time, thanks to our friends at Q101, the Loop and Resorts East Chicago Casino, they get their wish” said Glenn Drover, president and founder of Eagle Games.

“Annie is one of the reasons that DD Tournament Poker 2005 was the number one selling poker software over the past year. We are very pleased to be continuing our relationship with her and are excited about the launch of DD Poker 2006. Poker continues to be immensely popular and the DD Tournament Poker software product line fills the huge demand for a software title that allows players to practice what they have learned from television and books.”
