November’s Guest – Terry King – Nov 15th, 2018 5:30PM PST
Terry moved to Vegas right after graduation. Her roommate taught her how to play poker. Terry’s first game was .25 ante, $1-5, 5-card draw at the Golden Nugget. She eventually quit her legal secretary job to play $1-3 stud at the Dunes every day. When she FINALLY turned 21,she went to work dealing at Silver City. First game she dealt was $3,000-6,000, with Major Riddle and Shoeshine Nick. It was the wild, wild West! and had a gun pulled at the table – Had a gun put to her head, mid-pot, while dealing!
Terry won a WSOP bracelet in 78, and was one of the first women to deal main event that year. She dated Chip Reese right after that. She has played poker at every level and has also dealt, run tournaments, run shifts, and hosted games. She moved back home to Oklahoma 7 years ago to help her ailing for Mom. Sadly, she passed away a few months ago and Terry has returned to Vegas!
Terry is an admin for the Real Grinders Facebook poker group and posts vintage pictures every day. She’s looking forward to revisiting some of these places!

– Dealing “back in the day”
