I will preface my comments by saying that I have been an avid reader of this site for many a year and have enjoyed Vicky's contributions. ( i even bought ya book, V.C !!! ) .

I was shocked to read the following in a poker article in Australian Penthouse Magazine, December 2006 issue ( the article was about Young Aussie Guns in Poker - Joe Hachem, Emad Tahtouh and Mark Vos :

and i quote :

........( re : Emad Tahtouh .. ) " in September, he came second at the 2006 European Poker Championships No Limit Hold'Em event in London. He may have even won, but the rumour is he threw his hand to 'shake off' the woman player he went head-to-head with,who Joe ( Hachem ) swears,wanted to sleep with him more than win the pot "


Now, Vicky, I realize that this may well have been tongue-in-cheek , but my question to you is, 'were you aware of this' article ?

If not, I would be happy to fax it to you asap ( i have no idea how to scan this stuff ).

My e-mail address is 'pokerguyoz@hotmail.com' - and if you are able to furnish me with a fax number, I will do so directly.

Your fan from 'down under'.......

Of course it's not true. Vicky's predilection isn't for xxxxxxxxxxxxx but blonde schoolboys. Dressed as chimney-sweeps.

That wasn't remotely funny and is at a minimum slightly offensive.

I reccomend you edit this.

!! The pot was 500,000. Even if I was heads up with Johnny Depp, I think I'd sooner take the money...
I must admit, I don't really understand the part of the story where Emad throws the tournament in order to avoid having sex with me. I don't think I gave him the impression that I wanted to, so perhaps it was simply part of the small print - I'm very lazy about reading those EPT pre-match contracts. I never realized the winner of the tournament had to sleep with me. (Mind you, I did go to bed with the winner that night. And I have to say, she was magnificent.)
All round, a very curious tale. Probably just a joke from Joe H that the eavesdropping journalist misunderstood or wrote up badly. But yes, thank you, it would be kind if you could please fax the article to the Hendon Mob office (+44 208 457 2978). I've got to spend the half mill on something; might as well be lawyers.
Happy Christmas!

Ah, and there was me worrying about Vicky. Nearly forgot she's more than capable of handling herself!

Excellent response Razz

Aw.. Embarassed but thanks for worrying, Ron, I like that. If only sexual discrimination extended just far enough that men wanted to defend women's honour - but not so far that they couldn't imagine a woman winning a poker tournament unless her Male Opponent had decided for some reason to throw it - what a lovely world it would be.
Funny; who would have expected such sexism from an Australian porn mag... ?

Excellent idea. Then I could say I busted out of the WSOP in 6528 place. What a line that would be, cheers Vicky!

Not being funny, but I think Vicky should do an autobiography.
It would certainly be a lot better than the fare going round nowadays, Jordan, Bet Lynch, Westlife, Robbie Williams etc, I mean who wants to read about those no marks.
Give me a book on Vicky anyday, I`m sure it would be excellent.
Ron and me would definitely purchase it, and would read it during these long winter nights

Hi Vicky.

Article in its entirety, faxed.

the magazine itself was not worthy of the $12.95 I paid for it !!

Enjoy.

Vicky is a star in poker circles in Oz since the Late Night Poker Days...

We were proud of her win.

She deserved better than that article 'slur' on her character me thinks.
