Ladbrokes Launch Pub Poker
Jason Flemyng and Dexter Fletcher are both well known as high profile stars of the popular movie "Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels". They are now hoping to earn a name as winners of Ladbrokes five week long online pub poker tournament that begins on Sunday the 28th of October.
Flemyng and Fletcher will be representing "The Duchess", a pub part owned by Flemyng. The two stars will lead a group of players in the Sunday tournaments. They will be attempting to win one of twenty seats available for the live Ladbrokes Paddington Casino Final on December the 9th. There will be cash won, as well as a poker cruise and an all expenses paid celebrity poker party and the winning pub. Many more prizes will be won, making this event a fun tournament for all involved.
To take part in the tournament you will need to get your local landlord to sign up. As an added bonus, if you can get a minimum of fifteen players keen to play, Ladbrokes will send you all you need to run your own tournament at the pub. The free poker kit will include tables, chips and cards.
Jason part owner of south London pub, The Duchess says, "I love playing poker and it's about time I can play with my mates in my pub. The Ladbrokes Pub Poker Championship gives people the opportunity to represent their pub and I can't wait to get involved with Dexter and the boys. Enter the tournament and take on The Duchess if you think you're up to it."
Samantha Alleyne, PR Manager of Ladbrokes Poker commented. "The Duchess was one of the first pubs to sign-up to play. We're really pleased to have them on board as I think they will really add to the Sunday game. To play costs a fiver and the prizes on offer make it well worth the small buy-in. Over 400 pubs have signed up so far to play and 15 of those, via the points they accumulate, will be brought to London to play in the final. A further five players will be wild-carded in to make up a 20 MTT."
This tournament will be a lot of fun for all involved. Which pub will earn bragging rights and the pub party of a lifetime? We will find out on December the 9th. One thing is for sure, Flemyng and Fletcher will be taking time out of their busy acting schedule to try and win it for "The Duchess".
