Shannon Elizabeth is addicted to poker!

'American Pie' star Shannon Elizabeth's addiction of playing cards is beginning to take over her life, so much so that playing poker has become her 'second career'.

She recently revealed that she is so hooked on to poker that she travels to Las Vegas, Nevada almost three times a month to play with America's top card masters.

"I have become addicted to poker. I am in Las Vegas two or three times a month these days, playing every other night sometimes. Poker has become my second career", Contactmusic quoted her, as telling the Blender magazine.

Elizabeth who has become one of the leading celebrity poker players and has won few striking victories at the card table, once walked away from a card game with 57,747 dollars.

Her stunning looks seem to act as her lucky charm to win the game; for she admitted that sometimes she likes to use her feminine charm to distract the attention of the male players.

"A lot of men get lost in their cards if you introduce a decent distraction", she added.

I agree with the legislation which aims to ban credit cards as a payment method for online gambling of any sort... and i think it should be enforced worldwide – not just in America. In fact, gambling with a credit card should be banned full stop. Not just on the internet. It’s a no brainer when you consider you are placing backing the outcome of an uncertain event with somebody else’s money. Chance and credit do not mix well in my opinion, and continuing to allow it would only contribute further in negatively affecting the high levels of personal debt many citizens today find themselves in. I do however, think that the prohibition won't work; or at least it won’t be received well amongst gamblers - I mean what’s the point in banning a credit card payments made on an online poker game, for example, but not on other kinds of online sports betting? Slightly hypocritical no? I mean how can you allow someone to participate [with or without a credit card] in online horse racing betting, but not put any money on a hand of texas hold’em poker? both activities involve a large degree of chance, and neither are guaranteed to yield financial return.
What really infuriates me is that the minority of irresponsible gamblers [those paying with someone elses money!] have now ruined the fun of online betting for everyone else - those like me who pay with money they actually have in their bank!!
At least for the Americans there is always the free online poker games!
