Correction: Oops, I didn’t Suck Out on Olga

by , Jul 25, 2006 | 9:10 pm

LAS VEGAS–Last week I reported getting a lot of chips in the $1,500 NLH event by cracking Olga Varkonyi’s aces (and a flopped set of jacks) with my pocket 10s. Not the case. I probably misidentified her because I thought it would sound cooler. And I thought that TBR had knocked her out of last year’s main event, which I thus figured we could use to turn the Batfaces into her true nemeses. But upon checking facts with TBR, it turned out he didn’t knock her out either — he was just sitting at her table when that happened. Huh. Interesting.

So with Olga out of the equation, the lovely long-dark-hair lady whose dreams I presumably crushed on the turn was actually Michele Lewis, a pro from Houston. Michele was actually the first woman to make a final table in the 2006 WSOP. And she has cashed three times thus far. That’s better than I have done.

Here’s Olga. The main picture in this post is of Michele. (Did I mention she’s pretty and talented?)

Pokerati regrets the error. The misidentification one, not the bad play with my TT vs. her AA.

Thanks Sarah Bilney for setting the record straight!

    […] Now I’m not trying to say that the blogs that have always included non-poker content should draw our ire. A perfect example is Pauly, who got us to read his blog because of his great writing and goofy trials and travails as much as for any poker content. Hell, even this site has always had to feature a lot of non-poker content, mainly because the pokerati-in-chief rarely knows much about it or who the relevant players are, even going so far as to confuse the Fresh Princess with Olga Varkonyi.

    […] the poker hottie du jour. They didn’t have a box for write-in candidates, so I voted for Olga Varkonyi. Clonie apparently isn’t what she used to be back in the day when her primary […]
