An avid fan of poker and a passionate poker player, Kelly Hu. Her Chinese-Haiwan and American features made her deserving to be one of the hottest girls on poker on the list.

Kelly Hu was born on February 13, 1968 in Hawaii by her mother Juanita, who was a state engineering drafter. While her father, a salesman and an exotic bird feeder, Herbert. But unfortunately, her parents went divorced during Kelly's childhood.

Hu has held a lifelong interest in singing and dancing and has also been interested in martial arts since her early childhood, when her older brother would arrange for her to fight neighborhood boys. Hu's cousin was a successful model in Japan and Hu decided to follow her example. To gain publicity, Kelly won the Miss Hawaii Teen USA 1985 title and competed in the Miss Teen USA 1985 pageant, becoming the third Miss Teen USA titleholder.

Kelly has mentioned in interviews that her mother had told her America was not ready for an Asian as such a prominent role model. However, she became the first Asian American to win the title. Ironically enough, she discovered after winning that she was prohibited from appearing in non-contest related activities for the year of her reign, this rule soon changed later on the coming years.

Kelly Hu has frequently taken part in World Series of Poker and World Poker Tour competitions, most recently taking part in the WPT Celebrity Charity on March 3, 2008. She has taken part in HollywoodPoker.com's "Celebrity Poker Night" (May 30, 2006), and in July 2006 she placed in the top 200 in the World Series of Poker Ladies Tournament, besting nearly a thousand other competitors. Her celebrity teammates included Mimi Rogers, Victoria Pratt, Anne Heche, Mena Suvari, Jean Smart, and Ricki Lake.

Despite having a very pretty face and great assets and talents, it is very hard to believe that this hot poker girl Kelly Hu was not yet married.
