Paddy Power Poker: Play our Legends of Football Tournament this Sunday

Not a bad way to spend a Sunday evening, knocking Paul Ince out with a 7,2 unsuited.


Tough football trivia question for you: what do Keith Andrews, Razor Ruddock, Paul Ince, Teddy Sheringham, David May, Micheal Ball, Norman Whiteside, Ray Parlour, John O’Shea, Charlie Adam, Jonathan Walters and Stephen Hunt all have in common?

Answer: absolutely sweet f*ck all. Other than the fact they’re all playing in our Legends of Football poker game this Sunday at 8pm.

Yep, you heard it; these ‘legends’ (loosely termed for some – not naming names, Keith, Stephen, Michael) have all signed up to try to take home the cash in a No-Limit game of Texas Holdem  – and you can too.

‘How do I get involved?’, I hear you say. Well, it’s piss easy. The buy-in is €10 and anyone can enter. Yes, anyone.

And, if that’s not enough for you we are going to make it more interesting. Not only would it give you serious bragging rights to say you knocked out Paul Ince (or any of the other ‘legends’), we’ve also put a €100 bounty on each of their heads so if you knock one (or more) out, and don’t win the tournament, you still walk away with enough cash for at least five Deliveroos.

Oh, and one more bonus: we’ve added €2,000 to the prize pool. I mean, come on. What more could you want?

All you have to do is login if you’re already a Paddy Power Poker customer and search the tournament lobby for the ‘Legends of Football’ tournament (7th June). If you’re not, then just sign up to Paddy Power Poker right here:

As always, our traders have entertained themselves by opening a market for which ‘legend’ will last the longest in the tournament. FYI, I’ve heard Ince is decent.

Which player will last the longest?

Paul Ince @ 5/1
Teddy Sheringham @ 5/1
Norman Whiteside @ 6/1
Ray Parlour @ 6/1
David May @ 7/1
John O’Shea @ 7/1

Michael Ball @ 8/1
Charlie Adam @ 8/1
Jonathan Walters @ 9/1
