The Pink Posse Debuts
Last Saturday, Doralee Rae aka. Lady Pink got to live step one of a multi-step dream. She always wears a pink cowboy hat in poker competition. In living the Secret, several months ago, she decided to buy a dozen pink cowboy hats in a variety of sizes. When I heard about her pink hat purchase, I asked if I could buy one. "Sorry," she explained, "these hats are for my Pink Posse, but you are invited to be on my posse and wear one of the hats at the appropriate time." She went on to tell me that when she makes a final table at a big poker tournament, she would have her pink posse in pink cowboy hats rooting her on. Doralee did make a final ten, but not of a major poker tournament - with the Nevada Poker League. Though not a major accomplishment, it is certainly a great conquest to continuously win out of hundreds of players. Sort of a warm up to the majors. She happened to have some friends in from out of town so she had a Pink Posse dress rehearsal at Bootleg's Bennys in Las Vegas. One of those friends, who knew little about poker competition brought Doralee a pink wrist corsage! Like she was going to a poker prom! Very thoughtful, very sweet, and the first time I have ever seen a poker player compete, wearing a pink wrist corsage!
When we arrived and met her friends, I asked Doralee what the grand prize was. "Oh I think it's an inflatable kayak and some money," she answered. We all laughed as we thought she was making a joke. As it turned out, that was the second prize, first was a weekend at Belligo and cash. And the winners were:
1st – Denis McManus
2nd – Judy Rothnagel
Lady Pink's Pink Posse dress rehearsal was great fun. For the "real thing" (a major tournament) I hope not to be available. I plan to be at that final table with her!
In case you live in Las Vegas, check out the NV Poker League. It is a lot of fun, nice folks, and you can win a lot for a little. I will be attending many of these events and will happen to have my books and other poker stuff on sale.
I gave "The Tenacious Ten" (the top scorers from the first NV Poker League series) a copy of my tournament book, MsPoker, I'm Not Bluffing, Book Two. I told them, you can exchange this for another of my books, if you already have this one, or if you know all there is to know about tournament poker - but you cannot return it for a refund!
