“For American Pool, English Pool or Snooker, think Rileys. With top quality tables at 129 clubs and the best in food and drink, you can be sure of great play and a warm welcome at the bar,” their website – truthfully – claims.

Rileys offers poker tournaments presently but these are set to be revolutionised and revamped in the wake of a deal signed with Redtooth, who stake their claim as the world’s largest live pub poker organisation. Already poker is popular at Rileys snooker club, attracting upwards of 3,000 players a week.

Rileys Chief Executive Maurice Kelly said: “Redtooth have a proven record of bringing poker players into pubs across the UK.

“Poker is already very successful in our clubs. We hope the introduction of Redtooth will develop our poker offering.”

Redtooth currently boasts 58,000 players registered in over 1,000 pubs nationwide. It is also the partner of Carlsberg – well, if Carlsberg made pub poker organizations…

Redtooth Director Steve Saul said: "We are delighted to be working with Rileys. Redtooth are pleased that another top leisure operator has joined our long list of clients.”

The agreement takes effect from September 2009.
