Annie Duke is a gambler and, as such, she knows a thing or two about odds.  The good news for Duke heading into the Celebrity Apprentice mind-numbing three hour finale against comedian Joan Rivers is that she's not too far behind in viewer voting.

A survey conducted by Zap2It had Joan Rivers getting 40 percent of the 680 votes and Annie Duke getting 32 percent.

"Annie Duke is playing the game great," says Payton O'Brien of Gambling911.com.  "Based on ability to play the game, I would have to say that she will win this season's Celebrity Apprentice.  But there is another mindset that Rivers might get the sympathy vote being she's in her 70's and Donald Trump is obviously respects her."

This season's finale of Celebrity Apprentice is more about who is going to win.  We'll also be watching to see if either women kill each other.  The two have been embroiled in a nasty war of words since the second episode.  Rivers has even lashed out at the poker community on a number of occasions, prompting another professional player, Doyle Brunson, to demand an apology.  Brunson has been mocking Rivers on his Twitter page.

"Joan Rivers has a concussion. She was getting a drink and the toilet seat fell on her head," Brunson posted. 

Both women are playing for their favorite charities.  The show airs at 8 pm EST on NBC.  It has also been renewed for another season by the network.
