Shane Warne and 888 host golf and poker event
Online poker site 888poker.com and their brand ambassador Shane Warne recently joined forces to present the first ever Shane Warne Golf and Poker Classic.
A group of 100 golfers and over 60 poker players gathered at the Grove Luxury Resort on Saturday 8 March for a day of sporting action.
The golf event saw Warney’s Warriors – including cricket icons Ian Ward, Michael Vaughan, and Darren Gough – defeat another celebrity team of Kevin Pietersen, Shaun Udal, Ian Harvey and Jeremy Snape as well as golfers from all over the UK.
Next on the agenda was a dinner and charity auction for the Shane Warne Foundation which raised over £25,000.
After that came the poker, hosted by the Grosvenor G Casino in Luton, which saw bounties placed on the heads of the sporting legends in attendance.
The tournament was won by Thomas Gill, who claimed £2,780 for seeing off a final table consisting of Dragos Laslo, Kevin Lanceley, Ritchie Gray, Robert Leng, Steve Dent, Mark Gray, Chris Lamb, James Grogan and Stephen Turk.
