Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) January 15, 2008
Lisa Tenner has been tapped by Global Gaming Business Magazine as one of the "25 People To Watch" in 2008. The January issue of the international magazine cited her as "The Poker Queen Maker" for her role in creating the "Queen of Hearts" Team at the World Series of Poker, a charitable program that has become the hottest ticket in women's poker.
Tenner, a branding impresario, stands in illustrious company along with Kazuo Okada, Chairman Azure Co., Vice President of Wynn Resorts Ltd.; Keith Smith, President and CEO of Boyd Gaming; Bruce Rowe, SVP of Strategy and Business Development for Bally Technologies; Kathleen McLaughlin-Harris, Managing Director, Global Slot Marketing and Operations for Las Vegas Sands Corp.; Dan D'Arrigo, Exec VP and CFO of MGM Mirage, and Rosalind Krause, General Manager of Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort, among others.

Players contribute part of their winnings to the American Heart Association and the Nevada Cancer Institute. Celebrities that have played and co-captained the team with Tenner are Jennifer Tilly and Mimi Rogers. Recent pros have included J.J.
