    Default CBS thinking about broadcasting new professional poker league?

    Variety's Stuart Levine's inside sources report that CBS is in talks with the professional poker league that Annie Duke and Jeffrey Pollack are looking to run. A broadcast network deal would be huge for the league, especially since some in the poker community have cast doubts on the future success of the league.

    I'll be watching out this four tournaments. I really admire Annie Duke in her poker gaming. I heard before that she's also the one who taught Ben Affleck on how to be a good poker player. Though she didn't become that successful in the show business industry, in the world of poker, she's the queen.

    Better to check out with the new pros poker league. I also do admire Annie Duke when it comes to her poker skills. Actually, I'm a fan and a follower in her poker career. So, does these mean that a new trend of career will Annie Duke and many pros are engaging in?

    That's interesting! Although there are still political issues surrounding gambling online at homes, it's nice to have some TV programs that are active in producing poker tournaments like this. Well I think poker is slowly becoming a sport, don't you think?

    What a great family of poker players! Annie Duke and Howard Lederer.

    Both very similar styles and composed at the tables.
