It all started as an April Fools joke a few months back, Paddy Power Poker announced a world record strip poker attempt. Many were fooled into believing the press release from the Irish jokers. Naturally, we at UK Poker News spotted the joke straight away... no, really!
In a bizarre twist, Paddy Power have turned their gag into a serious event! On August 19th, poker players attending the Café Royal in London will be able to register for the Paddy Power World Strip Poker Championship. This will be a world record attempt for the largest strip poker tournament.
Entry is totally free and, as if getting naked in front of complete strangers wasn't enough incentive to come along and play, Paddy Power have guaranteed a £10,000 - winner takes all - prize pool. The lucky winner will also gain free entry to the 2007 Paddy Power Irish Poker Open with a prize fund in excess of £1,000,000.
Paddy Power Poker promise "free money, fine food, fantastic freebies for all and most importantly fun, fun, fun!"
