Sleepless in Fulham: Rambling and gambling by David Young
Friday, 4 July 2008
Victoria Coren online.
Topic: Poker

Victoria Coren has kindly informed me that she now has a website featuring her work. It has archives of her Guardian and Observer columns (if you can find them) and its own blog. Check the latter now to learn of her progress in the $1,500 HORSE event.

She's asked me for my thoughts on the site. The content is impeccable of course, but I find the text rather small. The presentation may change in due course.

Wishing her all the best in the main event.

She has looney political views and she is possibly the worst poker player is history.

I've written to Vicky and suggested that she uses this as a tag-line for the site. Strangely she's not keen on the idea. I think it's brilliant.

Anyone who writes for The Guardian is bound to be a nutcase.


She did get lucky to win the London EPT. Now all we have to do is to see how many more big tournaments she will win.

Please do me the courtesy and elaborate. Did you see her in the EPT? Did you see the hands she hit, 88 v aa all in pre flop as an example. It is well know around the poker circuit.


Now please anonymous, enlighten us as to your profound knowledge.

It's not hard to find examples of hands she played well online. Her site links to a couple of them. Everyone gets a bit of luck eventually. Witness this hand in the 1989 WSOP where Phil Hellmuth knocks out two opponents to get heads up with Johnny Chan.

You have to feel a bit sorry for Don Zewin.
