A journalist with experience in writing for a wide range of print publications on business, gaming, and legal affairs, Wendeen Eolis takes special pleasure in chronicling her adventures in the poker world in her collection of stories Power Poker Dame and in her manual People Reading Secrets. Updates to both works are currently in progress.
"Poker is a mind bending game
of bets, calls, raises and folds....
that is only sometimes played with cards"
Wendeen H. Eolis

Power Poker Dame
Ms. Eolis is also the author of Power Poker Dame, a high-voltage collection of adventures of a business-savvy, politically connected CEO who happens to play No-Limit Texas Hold 'em at the toughest tables on the planet, in conference rooms and card rooms alike, including the likes of Phil Hellmuth, Doyle Brunson, Bertrand Grospelier, David Williams, Chris Moneymaker, and Howard Lederer, among others.
From legally prohibited underground card rooms to upscale glittering poker palaces, her stories unfold amid a grand mosaic of colorful, cunning, eccentric, adrenaline-hooked characters on a quest for cash, power, and perks. In the process, she learned much about how to succeed in poker games that extend far beyond the felt.
Power Poker Dame chronicles an ambitious woman's unusual path through the converging worlds of business, politics, and poker. Wendeen tells her story not merely through interviews and observations as a reporter, but more personally as a longtime player, with a sometimes heart-wrenching, often humorous, and always thought-provoking look at the people who navigate through a wild variety of poker situations with varying degrees of grace.
