We welcome a new poker room to our family of affiliate card rooms here at UK Pokernews, one which all of you punters in the UK will be familiar with. Racing Post Poker is the new card room from the flagship sports betting newspaper and we all think it was a long time coming. The card room will be on the 888 network and we think they will be very good for the game, as they will surely attract plenty of fishy sports betting punters to the tables.
This Saturday at 8pm, they will be hosting the inaugural Derby Day Poker Tournament. Players competing in the $25 plus $2.50 entry event will have a chance of scooping a sizable pot, and also of earning a $50 bounty for knocking out a Racing Post expert with a price on his head.
The Racing Post team consists of Mr Pricewise, Tom Segal, the greatest racing tipster in the world, Jim Cremin, the doyen of Greyhound journalism, football guru Ian Wilkerson, tennis and internet wizard Dave Hogan, and the man in the know, racing columnist Steve Dennis.
If that and the almost guaranteed influx of fish wasn't enough to persuade you to have a punt on Racing Post Poker, then how about $3500 in first depositor free rolls and an impressing £200 sign up bonus when you join via our Pokernews affiliate links.
