Annie Duke has made a resurgence lately in terms of getting herself back in the spotlight. The World Series of Poker bracelet winner appeared on the Fox Business Network last week to talk about the gambling industry sector in the United States.

Duke, who was introduced as a “former professional poker player,” largely defended gambling as a legal and regulated enterprise after questions from host John Stossel.

The 47-year-old Duke has not been as prominent of a face in the poker and gambling world since her Epic Poker League folded last year in bankruptcy.

Duke and her co-guest vocalized some of the classic arguments in defense of gambling as a legitimate business. Check out the video below.

In addition to the Fox Business appearance, Duke recently sat down with The Young Turks to talk about a similar topic.

If you legalize it, it's better regulated. I'm all for legalizing gambling... good stuff Duke and Basham.
