Shana: The rush you feel when you know you have them beat.. It's enough to make you want to quit your job and play poker for a living!
Shana: Poker is a game of skill and luck. I am extremely impressed with the focus and determination the players display during these tournaments. Other than that, I am not sure that there is any rule of thumb for what makes a good poker player.
Shana: (On her favorite part of hosting the World Poker Tour) There are many things I love about it, but my favorite part is traveling to so many beautiful locations, including Paris, Aruba, Costa Rica, and the many casinos in the United States. Costa Rica offered the most diverse scenery of all of the locations we visited with its rainforests, stunning waterfalls, and a live volcano.
Shana: I like a real man. Not a pretty boy who looks in the mirror longer than me and who shaves his body.
