Alexandra"I read cards, not minds." That's what I used to say to people as a fortune teller reading tarot cards, when they would ask me if I thought I had omniscient psychic powers. From tarot reader to poker player, I suppose I've always liked cards. My dad told me to play Blackjack in a Reno casino hotel room when I was a child, but I didn't fall in love with poker until adulthood. I survived cancer as a mom with two young children three years ago and found equal doses of peace and excitement through the Stoic philosophy that goes hand in hand with poker playing. Now you can find me streaming Poker on Twitch as QueenOfDiamonds, or hosting home games with the ladies and gentlemen in my quiet, Canadian neighbourhood.
