Shane Warne and 888 host golf and poker event

 | March 14, 2014


Online poker site 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 WarneyÂ'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.
