IF YOU play your cards right you can go from Sheffield to Las Vegas.
That’s just what 10 pub poker players from across the UK did when they won an all-expenses paid trip to Vegas after competing in a national semi-final at Sheffield’s Genting Club.
More than 200 of the best pub poker players in the country took part in the first national semi-final, with the top 10 securing their place and joining 42 other players, who are already heading for America after winning their regional tournaments.
Vegas 100, organised by Redtooth Poker, is offering 100 places to travel to Las Vegas in May.
The tournament is the UK’s largest live pub poker league with more than 1,000 venues and 145,000 players registered with the event since it was launched in 2007.
Martin Green, managing director of Redtooth Poker, said: “This is the first time we’ll be taking 100 of the UK’s best pub poker players to Las Vegas as part of the national league.
