There is a magnificent scene in Cinderella II:   Dreams Come True  where the newly crowned   princess realizes she's in over her head. Literally!   Her beautiful blonde locks  may be able to  swoon the   prince, but they certainly can't balance books!

Married and ready to begin her happily ever after,   Cinderella realizes it's not so fast. The palace has rules.   Lots of rules.  (Should  napkins be cream or eggshell?? Or, as they say in Cinderella's native French,  écrue?!) And in  one of the most memorable movie scenes from  my childhood, the princess becomes overwhelmed.

Your kingdom awaits.

Testimonials

 

 

"Poker is so much better than spending my free time scrolling through Instagram! I got to use my mind in ways I didn't expect, and explore a new side of myself." 

- Megan C., 25

"I hated poker before. But when I learned to look at it as telling a story, all of a sudden it seemed less random, more fun, and Amanda's style actually gave me an affinity for the game. We had a guys' poker night and I placed 2nd in the first tourney and 1st in the second one!."

- Jake I., 30

 

"I've been playing poker for decades, but began falling behind the times. I was too 'old school'. But thanks to Amanda's Aces, at age 63 I can now play like the young guns!"

- D.B., 63
