They are yet to erect a statue but Gambling911.com's Jenny Woo might very well be the most famous resident of Pensacola, Florida.  Over the years, Ms. Woo has resided in Miami Beach.  But now it is time to go home.

"Too many distractions in Miami Beach," Woo admitted upon her final decision to move back to Pensacola. 

Woo's interviews with poker pros have turned Gambling911.com into the "must read" web site in poker circles the world over.  She has already secured interviews with some of the 2009 WSOP finalists. 

"After a few glasses of red wine I finally built up enough guts to tell my boss my decision to move back to Pensacola and was shocked by his response, which was basically along the lines of ‘that's a great idea'.  He even let me drive his BMW with Joe Brennan, Jr. of iMEGA.org in the back seat."

In Miami Beach there are too many distractions. 

Woo has resided in Pensacola over the past two months, celebrating her younger brother's return from Iraq.  He will be serving in Afghanistan in during the Christmas holidays. 

Pensacola is the westernmost city in the Florida Panhandle and the county seat of Escambia County.  Jenny Woo is among the city's most famous residents.

For travel purposes Ms. Woo would fly out of Atlanta, approximately 6 hours away.
