Final Ladbrokes Poker Million IV Seat Awarded

Final Ladbrokes Poker Million IV Seat Awarded

Wednesday, 3 December 2008

To many poker players, this news makes them feel like every other little kid in Roald Dahl’s universe when they heard that Charlie Bucket had found the last Golden Ticket to Willy Wonka’s factory. “Jammy git,” they thought.

A Norwegian player known only as GoNuts (and we know how well the Scandinavians have been doing in tournament poker lately) will take on such names as Tony G and the Hendon Mob to try and claim a $1m first prize.

Having beaten 120 other freeroll winners to his semi-final seat, GoNuts will have to face off against Tony G, Marty Smyth and the Devilfish to try and reach the final. We’re not sure if that’s a reward or a punishment.

Edward Ihre, MD of Ladbrokes Poker, said:" The way GoNuts's luck is running he could do really well and before he knows it could find himself in the final although he'll have to fight his way through a very tough field. We'll be running a number of markets as of today on our site including the outcome of the final. The line-up is brilliant and with the two final players bringing an unknown element to proceedings that is sure to produce two of the most exciting semi's we've ever had!"
