Eva Longoria takes her poker very seriously. She is a skilled Texas hold’em player, a real competitor, and absolutely plays to win.
You should have seen her play poker against her husband, Tony, and his two brothers. What a war! In any case, about two hours into the tournament, with the blinds at 500-1,000, Player A, in middle position, opened for 3,000 with A-8. Eva, from the button, moved all in for her last 11,000, and Player B — in the small blind — called off his last 9,000 with A-J.
After a minute, Player A called the 11,000, and the hands were flipped up. Two queens for the queen! The board ran out 10-9-4-4-7, and Eva’s pocket queens scooped a big pot.
Eva continues to be included in lists of Hollywood’s Most Beautiful and was listed #1 in Maxim’s Hottest Female Stars#9 in the magazine’s Hot 100 of 2007 list of 2005 and 2006, becoming the first woman to top the list in two consecutive years. In honor of Maxim’s 100th issue in 2006, Longoria was featured on a 75-by-110-foot vinyl mesh replica of its January 2005 cover located in the Las Vegas desert.
