Naked Record in the Cards.jpg

Myself, I'm not much of a gambling man. A couple bucks on lottery tickets is about the biggest loss I can handle and believe me, I seldom if ever win when it comes to games of chance. I think I've played cards once for money and I was so upset at losing that someone else offered to share her winnings and eventually the whole game got called off since I was such a poor loser.

Nevertheless, I might be able to handle a game of strip poker at least, even if I can be a shy guy otherwise. I'd only have my pride to lose rather than my hard-earned cash and there's much less of that to squander anyway.

Besides being somewhat forced to overcome my inhibitions and expose myself in front of a crowd always liberates me from my usual self-conscious manner and erases those haunting, uncomfortable memories of being a young man regularly huddled in a corner suffering unfortunate wedgies of my tighty whities after boy's gym class.

Speaking of high school pranks, that's how plans for the biggest strip poker championship ever, got started.

An Irish bookmaker with an online betting site, decided as an April Fool's joke to post plans for it. However, when the folks at Paddy Power experienced overwhelming demands by visitors wanting to participate in the tournament, they decided to make it the real deal as well as attempting to set a new Guinness World Record for the most participants.

Next month, as the original Reuters article (07/28/06) cleverly states, "200 poker buffs" will compete in the World Strip Poker Champion to win a "Gold Fig Leaf trophy and 10,000 pounds (approximately, $18,642 US).

"This will be the most fun you can have with your clothes on -- or off!" Paddy Power stated in a press release confirming the tournament date set for August 19 in London.

In this high stakes game, the website clearly states that preference will be given to female participants, mixed duos or those playing for charity. I hope that some of hotties will be unlucky since when lose their shirts the rest of us come off winners!
