They’re normally poker-faced, but a lucky bunch of lads were all smiles as they won a dream trip.

A group of 10 amateur card players are set to go up against the USA team after scooping the top prize in a competition in Sheffield.

The city centre’s Genting Club played host to hundreds of poker enthusiasts from across the UK for the national finals of Redtooth’s Vegas 100 competition.

After a long battle it was Dave Ryan, Paul Saunders, Martin Connelly, Colin Clayton, Julian Varney, Alan White, Greg Shiels, Sam Snape, Lee Hall and Mick Lear who came out on top.

Now they are set to compete with 10 pub poker players from across the pond during an all-expenses-paid trip to the spiritual home of gambling - Las Vegas.

Martin Green, managing director of Redtooth Poker, said: “We are delighted to add 10 more names to the list of 100 pub poker players who will be travelling to Las Vegas with us.

“We look forward to more exciting competitions across the country over the coming months to determine the remaining group of players who will win the chance to experience the home of poker – Las Vegas.

“Vegas 100 continues to grow year on year, as the best UK-based pub poker players come together to compete.”
