From bunkers to big blindsNegreanu and Sheringham don their golfing attire for the Fairways And Felts event in Portugal, a combined test of golfing and poker prowess
Away from the tables at the recent EPT Vilamoura poker event in Portugal, PokerStars staged a special golf-and-poker event at the Pinhai Golf Course. The events was, fittingly, called Fairways And Felts.
The €1,100 buy-in event attracted ex-England football legend Teddy Sheringham, as well as top PokerStars pros Daniel Negreanu (playing off a decent 11.5 handicap), John Duthie, Pieter de Korver and JP Kelly.
As you can see from these pictures, while Sheringham played safe in white shirt and black shorts, Negreanu was sporting some loud golf apparel that even Ian Poulter would be proud of!
Once they’d got through their 18 holes, it was time for the poker event at the Solverde Casino in Vilamoura. The overall winner of the combined event was Negreanu, who saw off De Korver heads-up in the poker.
