(KTVI)- Lady Gaga's hit song 'Poker Face' was not written about Maria Ho but she knows poker! She is currently ranked in the top 3 of the best female poker players in the world and she  just took this year's world series of poker "Last Woman Standing" title.

Maria tells us more.

Born in Taiwan, Maria moved to LA with her parents and sister at the age of four. She attended the University of California at San Diego and received a degree in Communication Studies with a minor in Law.

It was then  that she picked up poker, playing occasionally for fun with friends.

After graduating, Maria moved back to Los Angeles and built enough confidence and skill set to pursue poker professionally.

When Maria isn't beating the boys at the poker table, she enjoys performing music, traveling the world and also devotes her time to charity.
