A BROMSGROVE poker player has won a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Las Vegas where he will compete in a £25,000 cash tournament.
David Rennison from Bromsgrove Unionist Club, on Kidderminster Road, qualified for the ‘VEGAS100’ competition along with 100 other pub-poker players from around the UK.
They were chosen after winning a series of qualifiers, and will now compete for the cash prize as well as a £5,000 sponsorship deal.
Sponsors of the event Redtooth Poker will also be offering prizes for guests, including a return trip to Las Vegas.
Martin Green, managing director of Redtooth Poker, said: “We are delighted to finally secure our 100 players for the trip to Las Vegas in May 2019.
“All have done remarkably well to reach this stage, progressing through from their local pubs to numerous regional and national tournaments.
“These are the best pub-poker players in the UK, so they fully deserve this fantastic trip to America.”
