As if on cue, Gambling911.com Senior International Correspondent, Jenny Susan Woo, has given birth to a beautiful healthy 7 lb, 6 oz girl just after 4 am EST April 15, 2012.  Her name:  Lily Christiana Woo.  The newborn will be given the last name of her mother as the child was born out of wedlock.  The father is Jud, a successful videographer.  Both reside in Pensacola, Florida where the sun was shining and the birds were chirping to honor this momentous occasion.  


The baby’s given name is derived from the Greek word “leiron,” (generally assumed to refer to the white Madonna lily), the lily was so revered by the Greeks that they believed it sprouted from the milk of Hera, the queen of the gods. Lilies are known to be the May birth flower, and the 30th wedding anniversary flower.  Jenny provided her newborn with the middle name “Christina” in honor of her boss.  Jenny revealed that she will provide natural breast feeding despite the fact that her breasts are not 100 percent natural, having had implants. 

This is the one year anniversary of “Black Friday”, the day the online poker community will never forget as one in which the US Justice Department forced three of the biggest Web card rooms to flee the States, leaving countless numbers of players essentially homeless and unemployed. 

Many of the pros have since relocated to countries outside of the USA.  Some sites such as Americas Cardroom, still cater to those individuals stateside.  In fact, Americas Cardroom was celebrating the occasion with a Liberty Quarter Million, a $250,000 Guaranteed No Limit Hold'em event.

With a few pushes and a little one willing to hold off a few extra days in a mother's warm womb, Ms. Woo has helped turn what was supposed to be a "dark" day into something we here at Gambling911.com, and across the online gambling spectrum for that matter, as a time of joy and celebration.
