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!”
