|March 12, 2008 (Antiqua) -- An avid online poker player who’s active at popular poker forum, FlopTurnRiver.com, is poised to win PlayersOnlyVIP.com’s $10,000 video contest on YouTube. His rivals at FTR – or any other online poker community for that matter – have until March 31st to enter their own video clip in the contest. The video that best shows what it means to be a “player” will win $10,000 and a night out with PO hostess (and Playboy/FHM model) Carrie Stroup.|
Known as “GiveMeMyLeg” at FlopTurnRiver.com where he’s active in online poker discussions, and at YouTube where he’s posted seven other videos, the Michigan contestant’s clip is about a “Pretend Player”.
“Sometimes you feel like a bit of a player,” he said. “Then reality kicks in.”
In his clip, a wannabe player may blow his nose and wipe his butt with twenty-dollar bills – but when it comes to wheels his old beater shows he’s definitely not player material.
“Being a player means different things to different people,” said Stroup. “Most people agree a real player’s gotta have confidence. And style. A Rolex and a Ferrari sure help. But using money for toilet paper might be going a bit far!”
“Who wouldn't want to be a player? (or 'baller' as some of my friends call it),” admits GiveMeMyLeg. “I'm pretty far off from it right now, but I know if I were to win the 10k and a night out with Carrie, it would definitely change a lot of things!”
