1. Where do you live?

Manitoba, Canada.

2. Who’s your sports team?

I don’t have a sports team, but I am pretty sure that my wedding vows included 'love in sickness and in health, and we will always root for the Steelers and the Canadiens! 😂

3. How long have you been playing poker and what’s your earliest or fondest poker memory?

I have been playing for about 10 years. For me it’s not a fondest memory, but rather, it has been a life changer for me, providing motivation to push to be the best version of myself on and off the felts. Also, it gives me focus and provides distraction when dealing with chronic health issues. And many enjoyable moments when hubby and I are both playing and having fun competing.

4. How long have you been playing on Global Poker?

Probably around 4 years.

5. How did you hear about Global Poker?

Through theLango, he would talk about the site on his streams, I was a little slow to join, it took me a bit to understand the GC/SC. 😂

6. What’s your biggest win, either on Global Poker, or in live play?

My biggest win has been winning an SC Snake trophy. :)😁

7. Tell us about your worst poker moment.

Power going out deep in a tourney and I had no internet data on the phone.

8. What’s your worst bad beat story?

Idk, I think I have experienced pretty much all the scenarios. They usually only bother me for a fairly short time; a little longer though, if going through some health issues combined with negative variance for an extended period of time.

9. When you’re not playing poker, what’s your passion?

Hanging out with hubby and kitties, esp. drinking coffee on the front steps or doing a bit of gardening.

10. If you could rename a GP tournament, which tournament would it be, what would you call it and why?

The bounty tourneys that really don't have a name, like the Daily SC 1k gtd PKO and the Sunday SC 2k gtd PKO. The names are long and unwieldy if you ever try to Tweet out a final table finish in them lol. And, of course, would name A BoobsGirl Fav 😁or idk, something fun, maybe The Kangaroo or Booty Palooza!
