Go head up with Boris Becker thanks to Poker Stars

Tuesday, 2 June 2009

Decent British tennis performances at Wimbledon are usually in very short supply. Now Poker Stars is giving us Brits the opportunity to see if we´re any better at poker by offering a heads-up challenge match with tennis legend Boris Becker.

The winner of a series of qualifiers will face the German ace, who is now sponsored by Poker Stars, in a heads up game of battleship poker where prize money of $5,000 is up for grabs. In addition, the lucky qualifiers will also get a pair of tickets for the opening day of this year´s Wimbledon.

Free qualifiers are running on Poker Stars.net every day until 15 June at 1pm and 7pm UK time. There are also $1 and $5 multi table qualifiers every day at 8pm and 2pm respectively. Qualifiers from these daily events will go forward to a weekly final at 7.30pm on the 2nd, 9th and 16th June. Winners of each weekly final will then go on to face the German legend in a game of poker battleships in London on 21 June before heading to SW19 for the start of Wimbledon.

To find the tournament select Tourney and Regional in the Poker Stars lobby or simply type in Becker Battleship in the tourney filter.
