|What's her story?|
Kerry joined the poker group when she founded it in January 2004. Kerry rarely misses a poker group event (except for when she's out of town on poker trips!). She maintains this website, as you can probably guess from the KerryLeanne part of KerryLeanne.com. She clearly enjoys going on poker trips and has organized most of the details for each poker group excursion. She's always with her camera on these trips as you can clearly see from the abundance of photos on this website. Most of all, Kerry enjoys referring to herself in the third person.
|What does she do when she's not playing poker?|
The answer to this question can be easily found by browsing the rest of this website. Her day job is as a software developer for a large software company. In her spare time, she hangs out with friends and family, plays board games and video games, travels, scrapbooks, reads books, attends concerts and movies, and works on this website.
|Casino Poker Games of Choice|
Kerry enjoys playing $1-2 NL Hold'em cash games and has recently added $2-4 NL to her repertoire. On the longer trips, she enjoys tournaments typically with buy-ins lower than $300. She prefers the freeze out structure. She's not a big fan of single table satellites as the blind structures are usually insane.
Kerry will occassionally throw her money away in other parts of the casino (and sometimes random prop bets). She has participated in Blackjack, Craps, Pai Gow Poker, Three Card Poker, random slot machines, sportsbetting, horse racing, roulette, video poker, and more. She has only placed a few sports bets and is retired from that business after placing all the wrong bets on the basketball games in the 2005 NCAA Final Four Semifinals. She played Three Card Poker on exactly one trip (way before she started playing real poker), and that will be the last time she ever plays that game, unless she wants to lose her money very quickly again. She still plays an occassional round of Craps (Poops!) and Pai Gow Poker. Her biggest leak would be Wheel of Fortune slot machines, found almost everywhere (except apparently Foxwoods)...but she's a lifetime winner with the good ol' Wheel. She did take one for the team on the July 2005 trip to Vegas (Vegas 4) when she "let it ride" on a $1 Wheel of Fortune machine (thanks to MrBigStacks). She will also throw her money into the Tropicana junket "money bags" in hopes that one day it will pay off big.
