Win a VIP Lads Night In with Jake Cody


So you don't normally need an excuse on a Friday to have a lads' night in. But if you do, we may have one you can use. What's more you can raise some money for a good cause at the same time.

PokerStars has joined forces with Prostate Cancer UK, to give you and some friends a chance to win an exclusive VIP Lads Night In with Team Pro Jake Cody. You don't even have to bring chips or dip.

It all takes place on September 25, 2015 and is aimed at encouraging thousands of men across the UK to gather together in their own homes to play cards and, well, do as men do.

The proceeds of the home game then go to Prostate Cancer UK and help tens of thousands of men from all across the country have a better quality of life.

So how do you play a part?

We're running a promotion open to UK residents who have registered for Lads Night In at

As Jake explains:

"Lads Night In is a really fun way to raise money and awareness for an amazing cause. If you want to be in with a chance to win a VIP Lads Night In experience in London, including travel and accommodation, sign up to Lads Night In then tweet using #JCLadsNightIn explaining who is your dream opponent(s) and why. I'll then pick my favourite, based upon the most meaningful, witty or creative! For the record, my dream table isn't made up of historic greats. It's a mix of people I look up to and who would make it the most fun"

Seat 1: David Beckham-- I grew up supporting United and have always been a huge fan
Seat 2: Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson-- He was literally my idol when I used to watch WWF/E
Seat 3: Phil Hellmuth-- My favourite poker player when I first got into poker and he's still hilarious to play and interact with
Seat 4: Adriana Lima-- To help put up with Phil
Seat 5: John Duthie-- Legend of UK poker and great fun for the game"

Obviously saying "Jake Cody" will get you brownie points but won't necessarily swing it your way. If you don't want to tweet it you can email your answer to

The winner, along with four friends, will play a VIP home game hosted by Jake Cody in central London. As Jake mentioned we'll pay your travel expenses to London and see that you have a night's accommodation as well. And hey, if it runs late then at least you can go straight to breakfast.

Funds raised from the home games across the country will go towards vital services that men with prostate cancer desperately need and ground-breaking research that could lead to earlier diagnosis and better treatments.

A great cause, and a great night for you and your friends.

So you'll be raising money for a great cause, and having a great night in the process. So start telling us who you'd like at your poker table.

Seriously, stop saying "Jake Cody".
