After a deep run the annual Ante Up For Africa event yesterday, where he made it down to the final three tables, spin king Shane Warne is back on the felt today for the opening flight of the 2009 World Series of Poker Main Event.
Representing 888 Poker once again, Warney is keen for another big showing after his deep run last year saw him come very close to reaching the money.
888 Poker kicked off the WSOP series two nights ago with the official 888 Poker launch party held in the Kingpin Suite at the Palms Casino. Featuring an open bar and a two lane bowling alley, Warney was in the middle of the action as the Sheik of Tweak let a few leggies down the bowling alleys.
He was joined in the launch party by sponsored player and boxing legend Jeff Fenech, who also dragged along another good friend, ex-heavyweight champion of the world, and baddest man on the planet, Mike Tyson.
Incredibly Warne will take to the felt today, before jet-setting back to London to play in an exhibition 20/20 cricket match for the Queen and Prince Charles. With barely enough time to shake off the jetlag, Warne will fly back for Day 2 of the Main Event on Tuesday if he makes it through the opening flight.
