At 6’5″, people often called me The Poker Amazon, but I don’t really see myself clad in a short, leather toga carrying a bow and arrow. Rather, I see myself more like Poker’s Wonder Woman, decked out in that red, white and blue costume. Sure, the outfit is sexist, but, just think of the advantages of having cuff bracelets that deflect bullets (pocket aces) and a truth lasso that makes it impossible for another player to bluff you out of a big pot.
