'World Championship Poker 2' (PSP) - 18 New Screens

by Rainier on Dec. 5, 2005 @ 2:22 a.m. PST

World Championship Poker 2 features a much more detailed one player game, where you now have to work your way up the ranks, starting in your mom's basement. Once you start winning and accumulating money, you can spend your winnings on increasingly better pads, and furnishings. Hit a losing streak, and you may have to hock your stuff to stay in the game.

Ante up with World Championship Poker 2: Featuring Howard Lederer! WCP2, the sequel to the best-selling World Championship Poker, will put players at the high stakes table, bluffing and trying to steal the pot from some of the world’s toughest professional poker players, including Howard Lederer, Annie Duke and more!

Clonie Gowen is considered one of the rising female players. She started playing poker while living in Dallas and driving to Shreveport on weekends and making a few hundred dollars each week. She placed 10th on the World Poker Tour tournament in Costa Rica and then ended up winning the WPT Ladies Night Invitational by beating more experienced players like Annie Duke and Jennifer Harman.

Formerly a travel agent, she now solely relies on her poker income. She takes breaks when she is doing bad and approaches her professional cautiously (her single biggest tournament win is $25,000) - she has made a profit each of the 9 years she has played (her longest losing streak lasted a month). She has recently signed up with Full Tilt to promote that site. She also has an 11-year old daughter and 2-year old son so she has to work playing poker around her family life.
