April Facey – Canada’s Most Fun Female Player

March 2 Sandra Wong

I accidentally met April during a rant of how her aces got cracked for the third time in an all-ladies tournament about a decade ago. I couldn’t help but smile nervously as it was my first live tournament ever, and literally knew no one in the room. I listened to her story and was just glad someone talked to me. After her rant, April was joined by many of her poker girlfriends, and left without saying much else.

Since then, April has become a regular familiar face I am always  so happy to see when I walk into a poker room. And no, not because she is a fish, but because she is full of life. I have played many fun nights of cash with April, from Vancouver to Las Vegas and not once had a dull time. She is probably the most fun person to play poker with, not just with her maniac style, but her infectious personality. Over the years I have really come to respect her natural ability for the game, and without a doubt she is one of the scariest female players to come out of Canada. She is so capable of value bet-bluffing rivers with an A-high that it’s annoying. 

Here is April Facey and I at EdgeWater Poker room taken before they reduced down all the tables which makes me so sad about the ever declining state of Poker in Vancouver 2015. 🙁

If you are a female looking to play in the Vancouver area, you are in better luck than the boys however. Be sure to check out the Vancouver Ladies Poker league, created and organized by Jenn Assu & Lisa Lan, this league is truly a league of her own. Hands down, this is the strongest and tightest group of women poker players in the poker world. Don’t  believe me? then put your money where your mouth is and challenge them to a heads-up battle?! 😉


So let’s get to know this hot blond poker chick named April Facey!

April Facey is a well recognized poker player in Vancouver. Playing since 2006, April debuted on Fox’s Calvin Ayre’s wildcard poker. Her aggressive poker style has awarded her with several final tables and wins throughout the years.
