Jenny Woo Punta Cana Poker Classic

The gang from Gambling911.com, including Senior International Correspondent Jenny Woo, are on their way to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, for a one-week excursion to cover the much talked about Punta Cana Poker Classic.

The Punta Cana Poker Classic 2010 is a $100,000 Guaranteed Texas Hold’em event being held at one of the best resorts on the exclusive and heavenly beaches of Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.  Among those who will be in attendance:  Doyle Brunson and his entire family.  Woo voted Brunson “Most Sexiest Poker Player” two years straight and is referenced in his latest book “The Godfather of Poker”.

The Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, where the tournament will be held, just opened last week. 

En route to the Dominican Republic, Ms. Woo, a Miami Beach socialite who has “dated” the likes of Vin Diesel, Dennis Rodman and David Navarro, spent some time catching up with old friends in her old stomping grounds of Miami Beach, Florida (home of Gambling911.com).  She presently resides in Pensacola, Florida, or, as she likes to call it, LA (Lower Alabama).

“It’s been more than nine months since I left Miami Beach and is so great to be back,” Woo commented.

Of course her trip was not without incident. 

Her first night out was spent having dinner at Miami Beach’s fabulous new restaurant Eden, at 23rd Street and Collins Avenue. Behind the restaurant is a team that includes Kelley Jones, partner in Todd English's P.U.B. Las Vegas, and James Beard award-winning chef Christopher Lee of Charlie Palmer's Aureole in New York.  After a few bottles of win, our Jenny Woo christened the brand new bathrooms (we won’t get into the explicit details).  The lamb chops and ravioli appetizer were delicious by the way. 

Her second night out was spent chasing guys, of course.
