Canadian Kara Scott only recently arrived in Las Vegas for the World Series of Poker – but has struggled in her first two events at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino.
The television personality, journalist and poker player – who is a PartyPoker Pro – was full of confidence before signing up to her first two tournaments in Sin City, saying she couldn’t “wait to see what this summer brings”, only to exit on Day 1 without cashing in both the $1,500 buy-in No-Limit Hold’em event #31 and $1,000 buy-in No-Limit Hold’em event #33.
Still, the 34-year-old beauty – who spent 10 years working in London before relocating to California in 2009 – was happy to be back in the USA “after a month spent rambling around Europe” when she had to lug
a pile of enormous and heavy bags through security time and again.
Travelling Light Suits Kara
However, before even making it to Vegas, Scott wrote on her PartyPoker blog that she was
desperately trying to sort out my suitcases and get ready for the World Series of Poker.
But Scott – who will again return to her role as ESPN’s sideline reporter once her competitive days are over at the series – always enjoys her time in Vegas as she can pack far fewer clothes “when I’m just playing poker”.
The Alberta native is also thrilled that she is allowed to
indulge in both sides of my poker split-personality by first playing in some events over the next few weeks as she goes “bracelet hunting” before returning to her day job with ESPN in July.
TV Star Keen To Resume Role
Thankfully, with the way her luck has been going, Scott says that she loves “this gig and is stoked to get back behind a microphone” – particularly as she works “with a really incredible production company and some fantastic producers at ESPN.
Scott – who always makes sure she has
a lot of fun while working, even though there are “a lot of long hours and hard work” involved – believes there is
something really satisfying about working hard and stretching into a role.
Well, no matter how it pans out for Kara, we at PokerNewsReport.com hope she can add to her five cashes at the card tables of the Rio.
