Aussie cricketing legend turned wannabe poker star Shane Warne will be starting 2015 patchless after severing ties with long-time backer 888 Poker.

The leg-spin wizard confirmed the split via Twitter but added that he'll still be playing in this year's Aussie Millions and hopes to continue his poker dreams.
