The biggest poker game ever
I am probably one of the biggest fans of Al Alvarez on the planet. His book, "The Biggest Game in Town" is living history and written expertly. That said, it may be time for him to write a sequel, or at least a postscript.
See, as much as we've always believed that size doesn't matter, we've just been handed video proof of the biggest poker game ever played. It's a heads-up match between two members of the England Rugby Team.
There aren't many punches pulled during the match. My favorite moment is when one looks across the pitch/baize/whatver and says, "You're a child."
Here, just have a look for yourself.
With degenerates like these among us, it's hard to tell what they will come up with next (I'm formally putting in a suggestion for putting numbers and suits on their fellow players jerseys--make your best five card hand out of the first five guys you can incapacitate).
In any case, you'd best keep up with it all over at the PokerStars UK You Tube channel.
