Newcastle 2009

On the weekend that 100-1 shot Mon Mome won the National and Shearer returned to the Toon the Virgin Poker Festival took a trip back north to the Aspers Casino in Newcastle.

A capacity field of 200 were primed at the tables by 2pm and by 2.15pm many were already back at the bar as monster hands (AA v AA v KK and AA v KK v QQ were two of many) smashed in to each other from the off. The chips were flying for all of Day 1 and by the end there were just 44 battle weary riders left with Emma Warke leading the field. Day 2 started with another avalanche of all-ins and once the bubble was past we were soon down to the final table with Ross Jarvis now chip leader. By the time we were 4 handed Kris McLackland had the chip lead and he went in to heads up against Ross with a 2 to 1 lead. With both players hitting the 5 on the 10 10 5 flop Ross’ Ace kicker played and from there he closed the tourney out for a £7000 payday.

Elsewhere Team Virgin retained our Heads Up crown but didn’t fare quite so well (8th!!) in our maiden attempt at the forum challenge, in which Live Pub Poker League scored a comfortable victory.

Virgin Poker 


Virgin Poker is all about value. Apologies for the marketing speak but we've tried to pack as much extra value into the great game of poker as possible.

That naturally means freerolls and decent guaranteed tournaments (without the whole world in them) but it also means V*POINTS.

V*POINTS are unique to Virgin Poker and players earn them for every cash hand played on both tournament and cash tables. Whether you win or lose you, every time you play a hand you earn V*POINTS. Simple. Players can then exchange V*POINTS for lots of Virgin extras. That's Virgin Atlantic Flying Club miles, Virgin Vouchers that can be spent on a variety of things from mobile top-ups to digital downloads, and of course Virgin Poker cash for the tables.

You'll find plenty of action day or night from a range of games including Texas Hold'em, Omaha, Stud and 5 Card Draw. The call centre is 24/7 and there's manager chat for any queries players might have.

Tournaments run regularly and new players will find a daily $50 freeroll as well as a 100,000 V*POINT freeroll every Sunday. There's a full selection of Multi Table tournaments including a weekly $25,000 guaranteed, a monthly $100,000 guaranteed tournament and satellites for all major events including the EPT and WPT.

Naturally there's also free play on offer at Virgin Poker but with games starting from 5 cents and a weekly 100,000 V*POINTS freeroll we think you'll get a taste for the real thing pretty quickly.
