Annie Duke Returns to Chicago for the Chicago Poker Championships

Eagle Games announced today that world-class professional poker player Annie Duke will be playing in the DD Poker event of the Chicago Poker Championships (, to be held this Friday August 12th. The Chicago Poker Championships run from August 1-14th and are presented by Resorts East Chicago Casino, Q101 and the Loop. Duke will also be present at the Championship event held on Saturday August 13th.

Annie Duke is the leading money winner among women in World Series of Poker history. In August 2004 she successfully battled it out with the biggest names in poker to win the 2004 ESPN World Series of Poker Tournament of Champions(R) and the two million dollar first prize.

"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."

"DD Tournament Poker is a great game for introducing people to the world of Texas Hold'em poker," said Duke. "One of the biggest challenges for new players is to learn the game at their own pace without risking any money. DD Tournament Poker solves this problem by allowing novice and intermediate players to play against savvy computer opponents and to develop a solid understanding of the game before venturing into cash games."

DD Tournament Poker: No Limit Texas Hold'em Collector's Edition packaging featuring Annie Duke is available at fine retailers everywhere and from the Eagle Games website ( DD Poker 2006 is scheduled for release in September.
