The man who did more to terrorise English cricket in the 1990s and 2000s than anyone, Shane Warne, is expanding his business empire into poker.
In addition to the Advanced Hair Studio and numerous other endorsements the Aussie leg spinner will be opening a new branded Poker Room at the Crown Casino in Melbourne in association with James Packer, son of the late media mogul and notorious gambler Kerry Packer. Warnie is no stranger to poker though and is a sponsored player with 888.com. The man with the best tan this side of David Dickinson (and the whitest teeth) hinted at the new deal in an interview with Aussie website news.com.au saying, "We've got two or three that we are looking at at the moment, there's a business that I have with James Packer that we'll be launching next year. I'm not sure James would want me talking about that yet." The spin king had a deep run at last year's WSOP Main Event and pocketed AU$40,000 (about £24,000) for a third place finish in the High Roller event at the recent Victoria Championships.Keep up to date with all the news from the poker world by following us on Twitter and Facebook.
