ABCNEWS.com Takes a Look Behind the Game of High Stakes Gambling

5 February 2001

NEW YORK--(Press Release)--Feb. 5, 2001-- Learn from experts how to win at one of the riskiest and most exciting card games played - poker. Much more than a card game, poker is a life-style, and the fifth installment of ABCNEWS.com's Internet -only series, ``Chris Wallace's Internet Expose,'' delves into the world of high-stakes poker, introducing users to the legends and prodigies of this dicey diversion.

``Chris Wallace's Internet Expose: Poker Kings - Life at the High Stakes Table'' premieres Thursday, February 8. The Webcast will be archived so users can view it on demand.

As part of the expose, Wallace spoke with poker experts, including 72 year-old legend Amarillo Slim, and Phil Helmuth, the youngest winner ever of the World Series of Poker. During the Webcast, these two kings of poker offer tricks of the trade, tips on spotting bluffs and ways to know what cards someone is holding. Slim talks about past wagers, like the time he bet $50,000 that a fly would land on a particular sugar cube or the time he claims that Pablo Escobar kidnapped him. Helmuth discusses how he got stuck with the nickname ``the poker brat'' since winning the World Series of Poker at age 24.

This interactive Webcast on ABCNEWS.com is the fifth installment of a regularly scheduled series and is accompanied by an interactive poker game, culture quiz, timeline, poker terminology, ballots, tips on the game of poker, and links to related sites.
