I am probably the last person you would expect to know the first thing about gambling, but I actually have quite an interest in the game. There is something so exciting about throwing your chips on the table without knowing whether or not they will be coming back multiplied or not at all.

Gus Hansen, a sexy, accented gentleman from Denmark, should be reason enough to pick up a few chips, even if it’s just to let him win! He has an incredibly reckless style now referred to as “New School” for its daring irreverence. Playing hands that most pros would fold at first glance, he has been crowned several titles with his more than believable bluffs and undeniably adorable smile.

Vanessa Selbst
If that’s not enough for you, girl power comes in the form of Vanessa Selbst. Listed as one of The Advocate‘s “Top 40 Under 40,” this Tegan and Sarah look-alike is known to shuffle her chips while everyone waits in prolonged suspense. Her stern aggression makes boys fold while she holds a hand worth next to nothing and keeps a stone-cold face.

Poker is growing exceedingly popular amongst our fabulous community, and with Las Vegas GayDays just around the corner, there is no reason not to join in on the fun.
