The ladies event in the 2008 WSOP Circuit Event at Caesars Palace is on today at 11 a.m. John told Tiffany yesterday that I wouldn't be playing it. It's true, I hate playing women. But I had a good show this weekend and was playing well so I started to reconsider.
For some reason my husband knows me pretty well and articulated why I hate playing them better than I could've explained it. "You don't like playing women-only poker because you hate losing to women. You don't mind losing to men, but you hate losing to women. Every year you play a women's tourney and every year you swear you'll never do it again."
And then he said he'd stake me for half. Actually, he might've said that before his accurate spiel. So, I'm considering it.
I'm remembering the good run I had on Saturday. I'm remembering that the first time I ever played a poker tourney was at a LIPS tourney at Bay101 and I made it to #14 out of 150 or more. And I didn't even know how to play then. Maybe if I wear the same out fit I wore on Saturday when I won - especially my new lucky hat - maybe just maybe I won't go out first at my table like fucking last year. And that was just a weekly women's tourney.
Besides, if John is paying half....
BUT - maybe I only won on Saturday because I was playing with my own money. Which I said when I cashed out.
Oy, the dilemna. Either way - I'd have to get some work done and be showered and dressed and down there by 11am. That, I don't know if I can do.
