Can't get enough Ksino?

And so it begins...

To say the past few months after the WSOP have been a whirlwind would be an understatement. Looking back things have always been quite busy, but this is the first time the momentum has doubled if not tripled. Quite possibly this is due to letting go of all the things that hurt or brought me down. I had to completely change my lifestyle and even my surroundings, if only for little while. Focusing solely on me may seem selfish at this point when all I've ever done is bend over backwards for others, but one can only give so much.

With that said I can say you are now seeing the next chapter of my life that I began to speak about previously on my blog. So many amazing things have happened over the past few months and these next up coming ones are going to be even better. I apologize for the lack of updates, but I've documented everything and I can promise they'll be entertaining. In regards to what's going on moving forward I can happily say I've signed with Ksino (a company that will change the gaming lifestyle forever) and our launch is right around the corner! Check out this video from the 2nd of 3 trips to New York over the past few weeks. I'm head over heels in love with that city!!

Some other big things are about to happen too... verrrry soon. Hold tight at it'll be worth the wait. What I can say is that this year I'll be doing the bust out interviews again for the WSOP's November 9. I'm more excited to see what will happen with this table more than any other I've ever watched for some reason. After that I'm off to Costa Rica to host Ksino's party for the World Poker Showdown. A future post on that event will be up soon and the videos alone will be off the hook! Straight from CR I head to my favorite city in the whole world, Vancouver, BC!! Yep it's that time again for the BC Poker Championships. My inner gut tells me this one will rock. I'll be hosting and doing the vo again for the final table...only let's hope I'll be a bad girl and not do it because I'm playing at the ft! Long shot? When I let the cat out of the bag next week... you might change your mind.

That's it for the moment as I'm rushing off to meet my sister for her Hen Party tonight. Her wedding is this Sunday and I don't think I've ever been this excited about anything before. There will be fun photos and videos and of course i'll be tweeting away as I always do.

In all amazing things are happening and I want to say thank you for all the support you all have given me. I could never be at this point in my life with out all of you.

Peace and Love,

Table is set!

Last night Borgata's Poker Open played down to the WPT TV table and we have our players!
Olivier Busquet - 10,350,000
Yanick Brodeur - 6,655,000
Ivan Mamuzic - 5,780,000
Jeremy Brown - 5,480,000
Keith Crowder - 2,750,000
Kenny "SuperTuan1" Nguyen - 600,000

Both Kenny and Ivan were at my table day two and had a great table presence, since I don't know the other guys, I'm rooting for them. Ivan is also from Toronto so there's an added bonus. Looks like I might head down to watch the action although I've been dealing with creepy guy issues over the past week and not sure about going alone.

Today I'm feeling 100% and planning out this next week ahead before I'm off to Aruba. I have three options and need to see which will be most beneficial and what can wait till I get back in mid October. Let's cross our fingers I make the right decision. Also I'm still working on getting the sound to match up with the videos and all of last night was spent swearing at my laptop. Well, not all of it. I did manage to get the funniest one up and since you don't see anyone talking it works out perfectly.

If you want a good laugh all you need to do is listen to my little sister. Maybe it's just me since I love her so much, but the first time I watched it I was in tears from laughing so hard. Here's the lead up: As some of you know my sister is getting married November 1st and is living in England now. I went to visit after the WSOP for 3 weeks and had the most amazing trip. We spent 10 days in Spain on the island of Mallorca and everyday was either spent on the beach or on the boat.
Once all the videos are up I'll post the full blogs and photos which will make for a great post. So here goes... Enjoy!

On the home stretch

Today I finally take a sick day and have time to finish up some business and hopefully get my video blogs up and working. Actually I'm feeling much better after eating soup and drinking tons of water. It's not the flu (thank goodness), but most likely a mixture of dehydration, cabin fever and too many Coors lts with Gavin Smith and the boys. LOL. Now that the main event is getting down to their final 6 by tonight most players are heading home or onto London to try their luck at the WSOPE. It's always the same towards the end of a tournament. Every one's hopes of "The Big Win" shattered and all you hear is the non stop chatter of how bad someone played a hand or how they busted with a two outer. Only hanging out with Gavin and his buddies is different. Mostly what you hear from him is how hot the waitress is and funny stories that keep you laughing all night. Not to mention how he mocks other players as they tell them their bad beats and needles them to say it was their own fault to get them to let it go.

Last night was the last night most players were staying here at Borgata, if they haven't already left. I decided not to stay cooped up in my room and go spend some time with good friends. I met Gavin and Matt Brady down at the Old Homestead and afterwards we headed to BBar. This is the main spot you'll find everyone at some point in the night. And if you remember... the place where the infamous "Hooker - No Hooker" game was born. Ahhhhh, what fun memories! So sad to see everyone leave, but the best thing about poker is that you know you'll see them at the next tournament. I'm personally getting very excited for Aruba, but I really love being here at Borgata. No one can believe I come here at least twice a year for almost a month each visit and never get tired of this place. Indeed everyone here treats me like a princess, but there is more to it than that. I have so many fond memories of coming here ever since 2007 and know that there will be so many more to come. I've written a few blogs in the past on how much I love this place and it deserves to be looked at by people that have never visited.
