If a guy doesn't know when to fold, that's a turn off for me.

The World Poker Tour has released it's promo video for the Season IX TV series...and it looks like poker is about to get a whole let wetter, sorry, better.

The WPT has unveiled a series of improvements for the coming season, including a new soundtrack, enhanced graphics and feistier analysis from Tony Dunst, aka bond18.

Kim Lansing will also be presenting the action, with more interviews from top poker pros around the world.

But by far the most exciting development for WPT Season IX is the introduction of the Royal Flush Girls to the TV show - with the promise of non-stop bikini-packed action.

In this tantalising preview vid (just skip straight to 03.05min) the girls, not famed for their wit and repartee, show us what poker would be like like if played in a swimming pool, semi-naked. 

And there some absolute corking quotes from them too.

For example Melanie Iglesias reveals that poker can tell her a lot about men.

"If I'm dating a guy I would love to play poker one-on-one with him, find out what kind of tricks he has up his sleeve," she drools.

"If a guy doesn't know when to fold, that's a turn off for me.

"If a guy is bluffing in a game, that's ok, as long as he doesn't do it too often.

"But if he's bluffing on me...I'll cut him off."

We're hoping that's a metaphor Melanie, rather than a threat.

Steve Heller, CEO of WPT said: "This season promises to be unlike any previous incarnations of the WPT.

"The shows will be faster-paced and edgier, featuring the biggest names in poker mixing it up with more up-and-coming stars, pre-final table action and, as always, poker’s greatest and most recognizable play-by-play commentary team of Mike Sexton and Vince Van Patten."

WPT’s Season 9 will premiere with its 179th episode in January 2011.
