The game I play in on Thursdays... when the guy who organises it entered it on the UK Private Poker Registry (which will be relaunching in wonderful fully interactive mode shortly, I actually got round to writing some of the Perl required), he called it The Victoria Coren Supporters Club.
I've been meaning to ask her, or get him to ask her, if she minds. It's only a ickle game (10p blinds). Check it out at http://130.88.201.129

You can have your name added by coming up and playing with us sometime: the site is for our game.
I suspect not many people will consider it worth the trip for a game with a five quid buy-in!

!!!!! Of course I don't mind. In fact, I appreciate the irony: in my own Tuesday night game, I just get shouted at the whole time. And told off. And called horrible nicknames. And these "jokers" are some of my favourite people in the whole world! At least there's a game *somewhere* where I've got some supporters, even if they're people I've never actually met... maybe there's a lesson for me here... I should get out less.

All I would say is, where in God's name did you find that REVOLTING photograph? I look like someone's strange old aunt.

If you HAPPENED to want to change it, there is a marginally less hideous photo (not great, but it couldn't be worse than the one you've got) here:

http://www.hangingday.co.uk/archives/000327.shtml

- you'd have to scroll down to the bottom of the page and click "view image"

(and ignore the bit about being a fan of Greg Rusedski. That's just my friend Charlie being silly. We both despise that incompetent lantern-jawed Canadian.)

Hi - heard a bit about your legendary Tuesday night game. Barney Boatman describes getting an invite to it on this site as 'poker's equivalent of getting into Studio 54'! What do you play and what are the stakes? Who plays? I take it getting an invite is nigh on impossible then?!

Mostly we stick to very simple games - just Holdem. And Omaha. And Super Wiggly Pips & Flushes Six Card Replace. Except without the Omaha. And Holdem only one hand an hour. One reason why it's almost impossible to invite new people is that we've customized the games to such an extreme degree, nobody else can ever get the hang of it.

The players are a pretty bedraggled useless bunch of sleepy second-hand book dealers, musical IT consultants, ratty Frenchmen, cute marketing directors, exasperating voiceover agents, and cheeky chimney sweeps.

We're open to new players, but Barny is correct in pointing out that the rules are very strict. You need to know a lot of general knowledge trivia, palindromes and old pop songs; you must be habitually late and prone to mood swings; you should build your entire life around poker while whinging constantly about how much you hate the game; and (perhaps most important) you must NEVER complete a hand in less than half an hour, know when it's your turn to act, or hold a glass of red wine without spilling it on my carpet.
Hey, it's the best game in town!

Vicky forgot to mention that she cooks a fantastic dinner, doesn't charge a rake and always tells you whether she's made a hand or not...you just have to ask. The first lady of poker - we are not worthy. Enough crawling, I think that guarantees my seat for the next 10 years!

Hey VC

Although I am a bit upset that you were so rude about me you seem to have a couple of redeeming features

Fancy a knock up?

Room for a top 750 ranked tennis player - I should warn you, my poker's nearly as strong as my tennis

Don't play North Africans at Omaha though!

Chris has had email with you about your book about your film. Or just about your film. I forget. I expect you do too.

I suppose I might have found something better if I'd put more effort into the search, but I'm not some weird stalker - it took about 5 pages of Google to find that one, and I'm easily bored.
But anyway, if you want to contrib a bit for the "who the hell is this woman you've named your game after" page, bung it at my email and I'll whack it on.
