Gravesite of Poker Alice Tubbs in Sturgis, South Dakota, St. Aloysius Cemetery. She’s gone but not forgotten!

Poker Alice may have passed away in 1930, but she lives on in the lives of fans like me. I just love the true story of her life, and even lots of the not-so-true tales that have grown up around her legend.

If you are a fan or want to know more about her, keep visiting for new blogs and keep an eye out for a new book about the life of Poker Alice Tubbs. Filter Press will release Poker Alice Tubbs: the Straight Story later in 2018.

Anyone who is fascinated by the history of the Wild West will enjoy getting a detailed look at this lady gambler who played it her way—all across the West!
