Challenge England rugby players with PokerStars
Online poker site PokerStars are offering players in the UK and Ireland the opportunity to go up against English rugby legends in a special poker tournament. Mike Tindall, Dylan Hartley and David Strettle are participating in a private bounty tournament on 7 March, giving poker and rugby fans the chance to combine the two together. The main prize is an England rugby shirt signed by the entire team, as well as an assortment of ‘goodies’ from PokerStars.
In order to qualify for the tournament, players must take part in a special freeroll at 7pm GMT on 6 March; the top three will be awarded a seat in the England Rugby Home Game Bounty event. Players who miss out on the three topspots will have another chance to qualify; an additional ten seats will be given away via a special satellite set, which will commence 30 minutes later, costing £0.10 plus rebuys.
A statement from PokerStars reads: “This is your chance to play and chat with three England rugby stars at the world's largest poker site. So if you’ve never played poker before but are big on rugby, this is the perfect opportunity to get the ball rolling on your poker career and take a shot at some fantastic prizes.”
