Huck SeedThis spring, professional poker players Howard Lederer, Annie Duke, Tom Dwan, Phil Hellmuth, and Huck Seed will travel to the Middle East to spend time with America’s troops as part of the first-ever USO and Armed Forces Entertainment poker tour.

Designed to bring some entertainment and fun to the soldiers, the five pros will spend one week answering questions and giving poker strategy tips. The group will also sign autographs, pose for photos, and teach military personnel how to play cards.

Due to security reasons, the countries and tour dates cannot be released at this time, according to an April 7 press release.
