Take on Shane Warne at Poker

Thursday, 13 November 2014

Shane Warne is one of the greatest cricketers the world has even seen but how does he shape up on the virtual poker felt?

Players will get the chance to find out at 888Poker this Saturday which is hosting a special $5,000 freeroll in honour of the great leg-spinner.

To be eligible to take part, all you have to do is make a deposit of at least $20 using the coupon code SHANE888. The tournament starts at 8am GMT on 15 November.

The prize pool is guaranteed at $4,750 with the player that manages to knock out Warney earning some signed memorabilia.

Warne's form in live poker has been pretty good of late. He booked a score of over $20,000 after a 22nd place finish in the WSOP Asia Pacific Main Event. It could have been even better as the 45-year-old who was on the wrong end of a pretty bad beat deep into the tournament.
