I haven't yet so far. I would like to. It would be very interesting to say the least. I would love to meet Jennifer Harman. Jennifer is the woman player that I first saw on the WPT 4 years ago and got me started in this (damn her!LOL JUST KIDDING JEN!). I really admire her alot, they way she plays the game,her personality,and much more. One intersting story to tell you guys. I emailed a few poker pros and asked them for an autograph picture. One of them was Jennifer. It was weeks later, I actually forgot about the autograph pictures I asked for by them. One day,I was having a kind of rough day. I looked in the mailbox. There was a big cardboard enveloped. There was no return address on it. I was thinking,"WHO is this from?" It was post marked from Las Vegas. It didnt ring a bell at the time (STUPID ME,RIGHT?LOL) i open it up. AND, OMG! I big smile came across my face. IT WAS AN AUTOGRAPH PICTURE OF JENNIFER HARMAN! I actually couldn't believe my eyes. I was exstatic about it. I couldn't wait to get it framed. it reads " TO VICKIE GOOD LUCK WITH EVERYTHING JENNIFER HARMAN So now everytime, I am having it rough with a poker game especially, I look at it. In some way or another it gives me a peace . So I am very grateful for her. As for the other poker pro...............well,thats another story!LOL

One of the first big thrills of my career was my very first live tourney, at Cherokee casino in Okla., where i actually outlasted Amarillo Slim! That gave me the bug, and I've never been able to shake it. I love this game!

while i have never seen a pro at a live game (im only 19 so cant play at casinos just yet), it was really cool when i was sitting across the aisle from Phil Hellmuth at the USC vs Texas Rose Bowl in January. The funny thing was he was dressed just like he would at a poker game, complete with the all black clothing and headphones, lol. I shook his hand and said good luck in the world series this year.

I saw Greg Raymer at Foxwoods before he won the WSOP. He used to play big games down there beforehand, like 100/200 limit.

actually,i have talked to a few players online. 4 years ago when i got started with this, i was talking with Phil Hellmuth and just for the hell of it i asked him if he could play me heads up for playchips(YEAH RIGHT!LOL) he said he would,i am still waiting for him to play me!LoL. i hardly go on that site anymore anyhow. what was really the very first highlight for me was i was in a TEC tournament on that site where phil hellmuth plays. on my table was krazykunuck (heck,i cant think of his real name right now) alot of people on my table were asking him why he was playing in the tourny?he said he needed some practice(yeah,oklol). i was talking to him. well,one hand came up where i played only heads up aginst him and i busted him out of the tourny!i was sooooooooo proud of myself. :)

I met Harry Demetriou at the VCStudentPoker 2005 tournament, my mate was playing and i was enjoying the free drinks, was totally wasted by the time i met him but still chatted crap with him for like 30 mins about how his world series was going etc. also met Gary Jones at the UK Poker Open 2 where my buddy was playing $10k buy in that he got into online, also talked to Padraig Parkinson and had a drink with him here, played a little sit and go with some of the other players and came 3rd of 10 mostly pros, with my friend coming 2nd (shoulda had a 1 - 2 but got unlucky), no other names spring to mind as of yet

They say if you can't spot the sucker within 30 minutes, you're it. I saw 9 of them the second I sat down. -Vaughn
