World Championship Poker 2

Player Profile: Clonie Gowen

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.
