Lisa Works Out David's Kinks
Lisa Works Out David’s Kinks

“This is the best part of my day by far,” says David Shaw (Boca Raton), as he wraps up his massage moments after being knocked out of Flight D.

Shaw says his downfall came when he hit a set of Queens on the turn, but it gave his opponent, who was holding 8d 5d, a flush. “That cost me 60k,” he says, “I had built up a pretty good stack.”

His consolation prize comes in a 2 1/2 hour massage from Lisa, one of Coconut Creek’s Massage Therapists. “I’m a machine,” she says while working out Shaw’s kinks.

Shaw is strictly a tournament player who comes to Stax Poker Lounge, “when they have a good series.”
