UB.com's Annie Duke Launches Poker Tutorial App for iPhone & iPad

Bracelet-Winning Poker Pro and Popular TV Personality Creates App to Give Players an Edge at the Tables

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - April 20, 2010) -  Annie Duke has already conquered television with a recent win on NBC's Heads-Up Championship. She already dominates laptops with her involvement on UB.com's Team UB. And today, you can add the iPhone to her list of technological conquests. The world's best female pro has just launched her own poker app. Annie Duke Poker Tutor is available immediately for free from the App Store and is compatible with the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.

"In poker, odds are everything," says Annie Duke, UB.com's Cardroom Consultant. "If you're not taking odds into consideration, you're only playing part of the game and that's not a winning strategy. My new iPhone app really puts a significant advantage into the palm of your hand and it's free to use." 

The free iPhone app features an easy to use Texas Hold'em odds calculator, poker tips written by Annie delivered daily and easily shareable with friends, official rules of poker, and links to learn more from Annie through her blog, on Twitter and at the tables.

Another 'significant advantage' is a monthly $250 freeroll that the iPhone app will connect users with. Details on how to access the free online poker tournament are available within the application.

Annie Duke is UB's Cardroom Consultant and a member of Team UB. With a number of impressive wins under her belt, she holds the title of the world's best female poker player. Annie's first WSOP bracelet win came in 2004 after she beat out 234 players in the $2,000 buy-in Omaha Hi/Lo Split event.

That same year, Annie also took a seat in the invitation-only WSOP Tournament of Champions and knocked out eight of the world's best poker legends to claim the top prize of $2 million. Duke has made 15 final tables at the WSOP alone and has cashed 37 times heading into 2010. In addition to the respect she's gained in the world of poker, Annie is also revered for her humanitarian work.

Annie Duke Poker Tutorial can be downloaded from iTunes or directly through the App Store on the iPhone, iPod touch or iPad.
