Annie Duke (on left) has been getting a lot of attention lately with the approval of HR 2267.

New episode of This Week in Poker broadcasting live online tomorrow at 4pm PT / 7pm ET.

We have another solid episode of This Week In Poker lined up for tomorrow. Our main topic will be the House Finance Committee’s approval of Barney Frank’s Internet Gambling bill, H.R. 2267, and what we can expect over the coming months and year both in Congress and in the U.S. online poker market.

Guests will include Annie Duke, a woman, who testified in support of the bill, and John Pappas, the exec. director of the Poker Players Alliance. Also joining us will be Pokerati‘s Dan Michalski, who followed the mark up proceedings every step of the way.

Finally, we’re introducing a new “Poker Headlines” segment with our new favorite ginger Jess Welman, a ginger (sorry Lance Bradley, a ginger).

As always, we want to work in your questions for our guests as much as possible (fyi – we’ll be talking with Annie about things besides the legislation). Post them in the comments below or ask them live during the show in the Ustream chat box, on Twitter of via Facebook. We’ll once again be giving away sets of Skull Candy headphones today to those who ask the best questions.

In related news, check out some of the arguments for and against legalizing Internet Gambling made in a “Room for Debate” discussion on NYTimes.com. Annie Duke’s post here.

Watch Tuesday at 4pm PT / 7pm ET here.
