Pikes Peak Historical Society invites you to see Liz Duckworth as Poker Alice!
Liz Morton Duckworth’s new book, Poker Alice Tubbs: The Straight Story was recently released by Filter Press.
Liz performs as Poker Alice in a costume reflecting the Victorian era in which Alice made her living as a professional gambler–a woman in a man’s world.
Renowned for smoking big, black cigars, she determined she would never cheat, but was able to win on her own terms.
A true adventurer, she traveled to boom towns throughout the West, including Creede, Buena Vista, Leadville, and Central City, Colorado.
