Lady Gaga invited to Irish Poker Festival

Lady Gaga invited to Irish Poker Festival

Wednesday, 30 September 2009

Lady Gaga is proving to be very much in demand in the poker world. After being invited to Macau to play in the Asian Poker Tour the “Poker Face” singer has been offered a trip to Killarney to try her luck in this week’s Ladbrokes Irish Poker Festival.

The singer is currently on a break on her tour with hip-hop star Kanye West and organisers in Ireland hope that she will fill that gap by playing in their €550 main event beginning on 2nd October.

Ladbrokes’ Head of Poker Kate McClennan said, “It would be great if she could come and we'll even make room for Kanye. The question everyone wants to know is if Lady Gaga can make sweet music on the green baize.”

There seems to be a wide misconception that, because one of her songs has 'poker' in the title, she is a mad-keen poker player wanting to attend poker tournaments worldwide. Everyone knows the song 'Poker Face' is about her bisexual experiences.

Unsurprisingly, there has been no response from the Gaga camp. One person who has confirmed he will be playing is Boyzone singer and serial reality TV star Shane Lynch.

The event takes place at the Irish National Events Centre with players competing for a guaranteed prize pool of at least €250,000.
