A POKER player from Bromsgrove will take part in a prestigious event in Las Vegas which could see him win up to £25,000 and a sponsorship deal.

After taking part in and winning a series of qualifiers, David Rennison will fly to Vegas in May next year for the Redtooth Pokers 13th VEGAS100 event.

David, of the Bromsgrove Unionist Club on Kidderminster Road, will join others to take on current champion Tim Osborn, with the aim of being crowned player of the year.

Martin Green, from Redtooth Poker, said: “We are delighted to finally secure our 100 players for the trip to Las Vegas.

“All have done remarkably well to reach this stage, progressing through from their local pubs to numerous regional and national tournaments.

“These are the best pub poker players in the UK, so they fully deserve this once in a lifetime trip to America.”
