Man, I am sorry

I want to apologize to BadBlood, Rebuy, TheMark, TheRick, and the rest of the human race for speaking like an idiot. I have deleted my last post entitled " R.E.S.P.E.C.T.". I wrote that while "steaming" off a loss and it was unprofessional. I will do my best for it not to happen again. I tried to express my views on the respect, I as a woman, get at the poker table and didn't give the same respect I was seeking when posting my blog. For that I cannot apologize enough. We all have moments that we regret and that was one of mine. So to set the record straight, it doesn't matter what I believe or what has been presented as a table image to me, I will fight the inner "brat" and keep specifics to myself. Most importantly, I would like to apologize to TheRick. I came down hard on him in my blog by using one hand we were in together, as an example that should most definitely have been part of a larger demographic . Using him or anyone else, specifically, in a negative or perhaps hurtful manner in the blog was not right and will not happen again. He didn't deserve to be scrutinized so deeply for his play, attitude, and thoughts. To be honest, I have no idea what his thoughts are on these issues. It was just an opinion based on not enough information. Have any of you done that before? I can only hope that he will let it roll off his back and we can move forward. I understand now that I have nothing to prove to anyone but myself. So, it doesn't matter what other people do or don't do at the poker table. If I respect myself than that is all that I need to get through the ups and downs of hands, tournaments, and life in general.

You don't owe me an apology, I think your views on the game of poker from the female perspective are very interesting. Even if you're venting, go ahead and post it. It's probably more insightful than you may think. At least to me.

It's all good.

The Rick Here! Those comments have rolled off my back. I'm not one to dwell on things. Anyway, this is your blog and you have the right to say anything you want. Don't try to hard to get respect at the poker table. The less respect you have, the more you will win. Guys just want to beat girls so badly that they will give them all their money trying. And when you beat them, they will make smart comments. You aren't going to get total respect from everyone, thats just the way it is in a mans world. Whether you believe it or not, poker is a mans world. That doesn't mean we don't want women in our world, we need you in our world. Just keep playing, improving and taking most of the guys money, of course you will have to put in overtime to take mine! It's all good! And don't make me get into this blogging thing!
