VICTORIA'S PAIR OF ACES HAS ME IN A ROYAL FLUSH; RESULT WITH with sports betting's top tipster DEREK McGOVERN.

Byline: ADDITIONAL REPORTING BY JOHN SHAW DEREK, McGOVERN

IT drove me mad to read of Victoria Coren's triumph in the San Remo poker tournament because I wanted to avoid the result before I watch it on telly six months from now.

I've always said poker players are so Plug-ugly that you suspect they've pulled more royal flushes than women, but then along comes Coren (right).

The TV presenter and writer was born for the poker table - a great pair and ideally felt all over.

She's a good-looking, well-proportioned woman who plays poker. What's not to like? What's more, she's married to comedian David Mitchell, so has what men most look for in a woman - incredibly low standards.

When she's at a poker table, male opponents are preoccupied with her embonpoint - I'm not quite sure what that is, but I've heard it beats a flush.

bf wPn She's the first two-time winner on the European Poker Tour, although she's never mentioned anything to Mitchell about two-timing.

tt hmp Coren says she hopes her victory will inspire millions more Britons to play poker - I bet she does.

More easy pickings for her, you see.
