Ellen DeGeneres: Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
Her love of poker has remained a secret for a long time, but now more and more is coming out about Ellen DeGeneres as a poker player. In various reports, for example, it is stated that Ellen not only likes to play poker, but also really goes for it. It is described as Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde: someone with two personalities. On television a friendly woman who laughs a lot, at the poker table a serious lady.
For example, a celebrity who played poker with Ellen stated that she had even become angry.
