The correct winning answer is Clonie Gowen.
Cycalona “Clonie” Gowen is an American professional poker player. Her first name- Cycalona was inspired by the fact that she was born during a powerful storm.
At the age of 15 she won Miss Teen McAlester, Oklahoma. Then as a teenager she moved to Corsicana, Texas where she was a member of the varsity basketball team and placed seventh in the state high jump.
Clonie started playing poker while living in Dallas. Every weekend she drove to Shreveport, Louisiana to play cash games. She earned national recognition in 2003, when after finishing 10th at the WPT Costa Rica Classic, she won the WPT Ladies’ Night event (at the time the highest rated WPT show ever broadcast). She defeated some of the top female players in the world, including Annie Duke, Jennifer Harman and Kathy Liebert.
Clonie appeared on the NBC television program Poker After Dark, winning first place. She is one of only five players to win three or more Poker After Dark titles.
Her total live tournament winnings exceed $1,600,000.
She regularly writes for poker magazines and is a frequent host of poker tournaments and charity events.
