In lue of..
As I wait in the lull, no bad beats this morning, because I did not play, and waiting for this weekend which is packed full of Tourneys that I either won my way into or got entered into for free, I figured I would try my hand at some commentary. I know, you come for the train factor, but lets try something different every once in a while, kay? I promise I will be back with some tales of my Video Poker adventures soon enough..
So I read this Haiku on High On Poker and was inspired to write down some comments.
After ten minutes,
Tiffany Williamsen folds.
What a dumb ass bitch.
I finally saw the amazing KJh laydown by Tiffany. I admit I chuckled when she went for her cell phone. I think ESPN did a great job of making her a hated character.. and yes she is not a great player.
I admit I felt that loathing when I first saw her at the WSOP, however.. I do not think any one of us can say how we would react in our first major television exposure. The woman has been playing Poker for just seven months. That is a newbie thrust upon the world stage of Poker. I might be nervous. I might make bad calls not wanting to look stupid for being bluffed. I sure as hell would take my time before committing my chips to a pot. A LOT of money is riding on every little decision.
I think it is great that she scored 400K. In every tourney I have played online there is the lucky fishy player. The one who forces things to happen so they can chip up and have a good shot at the final table. Why should she not be the lucky one to walk away with some cash. Also, how many times was Fossilman in deep shit with bad calls in last years WSOP. I am not saying Tiffany is as good of a player as Fossilman, I actually have a lot of respect for Greg, but I did not see a whole hell of a lot of smacking down of him for his win.
Anyway.. she was polite through most of the coverage, which is more than I can say for a lot of those players. Hell, a lot of the “Professionals” are total assholes. I wish her the best and I suspect we will see her in next years event.. and then we will see if lightning can strike twice..
