Fist things first genocide is the deliberate and systematic destruction, in whole or in part, of an ethnic, racial, religious, or national group and Jennicide is the hot poker babe with the long blond hair, a chest to keep you warm through an Alaskan winter, legs that just don’t quit and poker skills to impress your pop.
Is she any good on the felt? Well Jenifer quickly mastered the online game tapping into her childhood video skills. She then read up on the subject and devoured (so legend has it) six books on poker in one week and began studying hand histories to better her chances. Within a year Jennifer became one of the highest ranked females in online poker tournaments and was invited in July 2005 by GSN to play Poker Royales’ Battle of the Ages along with such pros as Dan Harrington, Barbara Enright and T.J. Cloutier, where she won two preliminary heats and went on to finish 5th in the Grand Final.
At just 21, Jennifer upped the ante and started playing the highest stakes online at the 100/200 level and in September 2005, placed 9th in the World Championship of Online Poker pocketing another $10,000 in the $1,000.00 limit hold`em event. Then at the World Poker Tour Poker Stars Caribbean Adventure in January 2006, she placed 42nd out of 724 for a (not to be sniffed at) $13,500. If that doesn’t sound like a lot, lovely Jennifer has amassed way over £100,000 from poker to date.
Now I don’t want to sound critical of the young lady or damage my (already tiny) changes with this hottie but Ms. Leigh isn’t a high limit pro or a major tournament winner, but there are two reasons why she got famous and they were both caught on camera in 2005. Jennifer’s underwear (bra and pants) where seen online on NWP and (thank you Jesus) Jennifer was in them and playing like a devil woman at the time.
Who (apart from Paris Hilton) would have thought that some saucy snaps leaked online would do wonders for a young beauty’s internet popularity. Jenny didn’t see the positive to start with and threatened to sue Micon for leaking the photos on NWP, which kept the story in the news which kept Jenny in the news (bless her). And then the penny (poker chip) dropped and Jennifer Leigh decided that no publicity was bad publicity and transform herself from girl next door to super hot, hard-body model, she (allegedly) got a little plastic surgery and started working out with a personal trainer. Then she started modelling in professional photo shoots, getting her pictures in magazines, then that serious journalistic tome Playboy was mentioned and Leigh appeared in the May 2008 edition, and pulses throughout the land raced as Jennifer promise to play in the WSOP in Lingerie (but the little tease never did).
Jennifer Leigh was born on August the 10th 1983, and still dwells in her home-sweet-home town of Wilmington, Delaware but she loves to go a wandering travelling around the world pursuing her passion for poker. Her other life passion is her Maltese dog “Icey” and this poker babe would fold trip Jacks on the flop for a date with Ireland’s favourite misbehaving movie star Collin Farrell. CURSE YOU FARRELL!
