On January 9 Wednesday evening, poker player Maria Ho returned to mainstream TV on the game show Deal or No Deal on CNBC.

Her appearance in the Deal or No Deal show was not as a contestant, but instead she came there to support the contestant.

It turns out that the contestant Shireen Mui who was set to play for the $1 million prize, is actually a huge poker fan. The Women in Poker Hall of Fame 2018 inductee just so happens to be one of her admired poker personalities and Maria is joining her on stage to guide in her decision-making.

The 35-year-old Maria Ho is considered one of the most recognizable female faces in today's poker world, with total live tournament earnings exceeding $2.7 million!

A well-established and successful poker player, ambassador, TV personality, host and commentator, Maria was the first female hired as a strategic commentator for a poker TV broadcast, was once a part of the broadcast team during the 2017 WSOP Main Event, and currently is a co-host at WPT's King of the Club on Fox Sports Net.

She also competed in shows like American Idol as well as the 15th season of the Amazing Race (along with fellow poker player and best friend Tiffany Michelle).

In total for now she has 45 WSOP cashes, 4 WSOP final tables, 1 WSOP Circuit final table, 6 WPT cashes, 1 WPT final table, and many other final tables on the pro poker circuit.

How much do you think the contestant won? Watch to find out!

Nice show with 105.000 dollars, won by this woman, in this contest Deal or No Deal.
I saw a suitcase with a million dollars missed by this woman who competed.
She could have won $ 300k but his options they were not too inspired.
Anyway, it's a very good prize.

I guess everybody will accept the deal at some time in this show. The risk of falling down gets to biig even for the biggest gamblers.
The deal is just a statistical calculation of the hidden prices.

So if your left with 4 prices like 500, 1000, 7500 and 100000 it s likely u accept an offer 30000.

and even if u would continue and got lucky what with an offer of 52000 whenonly the 100000 and 1000 are left.

Watched the whole video, and i think i can say that either she was there or not,
and i am talking about maria ho, the outcome would have been the same Smile
It went well for the player, with only one cent in the case, winning a little more than
100k USD after he deal.

Interesting event! What do you guys think of thè offer they made of Two thousand dollars plus a WSOP buy in and a training session with Maria ho and a few other goodies? Would you have taken that? I think she made the right decision to not accept that deal but made a good call accepting the one o five hundred thousand!

It was an inspired choice.
This woman could lose a lot of money but in final was good and he chose a good option.
Usually this prize is winning hard in this kind of shows.
Now she can have some fun with her boyfriend.
With these money, if they are spent properly, can visit all Europe. Cool
