A woman's view of the male dominated poker world

Wednesday, June 13, 2007


Hello from Spain. In a little city called Lugo, not somewhere you would pick for your hols! My dad is slowly recovering, doctors said today that he will probably be able to go home at the end of next week which is great news. He will not be able to work for a few months so hopefully he will just take it easy! Feeling a bit homesick, nobody speaks english here and my spanish is terrible. Also not a great fan of the food, I could kill for a nice roast dinner!

Spent Saturday night in London. Decided to check out the new empire casino in Leicester Square. Only opened last week and they have spent over £12 million on it. Must say it was very nice. Decided to have a go at the poker, a £50 rebuy! Anyway, to cut a long story short, I bought in once and finished 7th of 35 making a small profit! Pleased with my live game, feel that is improving loads :-)

Got back to hotel earlier last night, nightlife here non-existent and just wanted to crash after being at hospital most of day. Played a few mtt's and ran terrible except for the $25k on Betfair. With 600 runners decided to go for it the 1st hour and was in the top ten at first break. Lost a huge chunk with AA vs KK but managed to get right back into it. With 60ish left made a howler of a mistake getting in a blind on blind battle with K6 vs KQ on a K high flop, finished in 62nd and kicked myself for the rest of the evening!!!

Adios all,
Mrs D xxxx
