This is Maria Ho. She's 33-years-old and is considered as one of the best female poker players in the world. She's already raked in $2.6 million in earnings and one of her many talents is the ability to tell when someone is lying.
She gets it because she's been lied to a lot.
She puts that strong intuition to use in the game.
Born in Taiwan, her family emigrated to the U.S.when she was 5-years-old.
She's got a degree in communication studies, and though she intended to be a lawyer, she decided to choose to be a professional poker player.

Also, it doesn't help that she's quite the looker!
