- Priscilla in a bikini
Doing an interview with a poker playing Poker Totty several thousand miles away does take a bit of planning but when that person is as sharp and as engaging as Priscilla it makes my task seem like a vocation from heaven.
Priscilla is from Costa Rica, which I am reliably informed is a beautiful country in Central America, and is a avid poker player as well as a national beauty – this interview will be instructive as well as enjoyable.
I am good how are you?
I am fine thank you.
As you know we are a poker website, do you play poker at all?
Yeah, I do. I started watching my boyfriend and his friends playing and I got curious and he coached me. I’m still learning, but I am good though.
Yeah a lot of guys think that because I am a woman I am a weak player, but they will get a surprise (giggles). Like I said I am still learning but I think I am good (the one thing you can say about Priscilla is that she is confident and knows her own mind).
What is your daytime job?
I used to work in a poker site in marketing, and I had the chance to play poker all day long (and getting paid for it, yay!); but management changed everything and I’m not there anymore.
Does this mean you can play more poker?
Yes, and I am learning to win more at poker which is all good. I also write for a blog and work in a bar down town.
Would you write for PokerKnave.com?
Sure why not.
How would you describe yourself physically?
I’m petite like most Latino girls. Brown hair, brown eyes… a complete brunette.
Which designer do you admire?
Honestly, I don’t admire any designer. I just admire people who can wear whatever they want and feel good and attractive with it, no matter what. I can say I like Dolce&Gabanna, but I don’t admire anyone.
When did you decide that modelling maybe a career for you?
Since I was a teenager, I knew I had to try it, at least. Models are mostly tall and I’m not, but hey! I’m a Latino!
So you would be a poker playing model?
Yeah that makes me perfect for your website (ha ha).
Who are your favourite models?
I don’t have any more favourite models than my good old friend Laura Torres.
Your friends with Ms Torres?
Yes and she has been an inspiration to me to try new things and look at things in a different way as well as being a great friend to have.
What sort of music and artist do you like?
I love music itself! I could just be sitting in a corner looking at the wall, and I would be fine just with music.
My favourite rhythm is reggaeton because you can dance with it and exercise and be “sexy” at the same time.
Yeah I love it! When me and the girls have a ladies night it is what we go for usually in the bar where I work.
Well, when you do start writing for PokerKnave.com you must upload a video of your night out?
Sure will (both interviewer and Priscilla are laughing).
Do you have any hobbies?
Oh, yeah! Poker!!!
What is your favourite entertainment?
Again, poker. Other than that, TV. If there’s poker on TV, even better!.
You really do love poker don’t you?
Oh yeah its so deep and intensive.
I have always said its chess for psychology?
I agree with you on that. That’s why I cant understand why some men would underestimate me, but hey who cares when I kick their butt (more laughter).
Which cuisine do you prefer?
I like Italian and Chinese, but my favourite meal could be chicken, pizza or hot dogs.
If you had a choice would it be a Prada handbag or a Jimmy Choo shoes?
I’m not a handbags lover, and I definitively know Jimmy Choo… The shoes without a second thought!
Which city would you like to be in?
Right now I’m in Central America. A great place if you’re looking for vacation, but I’ve never seen the snow…
OK Priscilla thank you for the interview and hopefully I will see you on pokerknave.com as a writer as well as a model?
Thank you for the opportunity and will see you on the tables soon (ha ha).
