What Am I Going to Wear?!

That is what everyone is asking me. Except for Jay Greenspan of course. I ran into him at the parking lot yesterday and though we only had time for a hug and a hey, the first thing after his congrats was "What's your strategy going to be?" He quickly took it back as he knew we didn't have time for a full on discussion, but I just laughed? "Strategy?! Jay, I need to worry about what I'm going to wear first!"

Still, I love that his mind was on winning. I'm reading his book Hunting Fish: A Cross-Country Search for America's Worst Poker Players right now and it's awesome. We get to see Jay's raw reactions and emotions as he goes on a cross country poker road trip. He takes us into private clubs, casino cash games, and big tourneys. And, we get to see what poker means to him in terms of his relationship with his girlfriend (soon to be wife), and his family. I love how vulnerable he is with his writing. This is great storytelling, not a collection of bad beat stories.

Anyway, back to what I'm going to wear. I have no idea! They want me to wear a dress or a business suit. I want something on my arms, but not a restrictive blazer. We want to show a little shadow of some cleavage (now that I have some), but we don't want my boobs hanging out trying to reach for my chips. The image I'd like to have before the masses, is that I'm fun and easy going. Because I am. And if I have my serious, thinking about my cards, trying to concentrate face on -- they might not see it! Yes, I am slightly concerned that I won't get to smile enough.

I watched some of the one with Cory Ann where Marissa Chien won and damn if that table wasn't so serious. Holy cow. Hopefully I'll add a little life to the program and show them that it's fun to play poker.

So, if you have any ideas on what I should wear, or which designers I should approach for sponsorship, let me know! Thanks.

Current: Las Vegas
Next: The Pokerdome on July 9th at the Tropicana!

I'm sure you'll have no problems looking hot no matter what you wear. That should distract the boys a little. And make sure you flash that smile as often as you can! :-D

I think a wrap dress might fit the bill. It a) is a dress, b) will cover your arms, and c) will hug and highlight the girls perfectly without an obscene amount of cleavage.

Oh how I wish I was there to go shopping with you. I am normally a solo shopper but I can't think of a more fun event to shop for!

I agree with you about how serious the table is. I like to have fun when I'm playing!! There is no doubt in my mind that you'll add some life and fun to that table. I am definitely rooting for you girl and remember... cleavage is NEVER a bad thing :)

Thanks, Everybody! I appreciate your encouragement. And Joe, I'll see you at caesars.

Last night I met the 3rd place guy in the tourney I played. Lucky Tony. Sweet young kid with a little bit of stubble, wears linen, and has a porsche emblem for a card holder.
