ACE PLAYER WINS PALACE CASINO POKER TOURNAMENT

Vegas is calling for Dan Fargher after he won the Palace Casino Poker Tournament.

Mr Fargher, 34, who lives in Ramsey, beat the nine other top players from the 12-week league to win the prize of an all-expenses-paid trip to this year's World Series of Poker in Las Vegas.

He said: ‘I've been playing poker for about nine yeas now, and when I entered the tournament the plan was to win it, so I'm really pleased that I did. I won the final hand in the space of just a couple of minutes and then suddenly everyone started cheering. I went to Vegas a couple of years but was ill for most of the time so hardly got a chance to play, so it's great that I'll be returning. I've only ever watched the World Series before; winning this great prize means that this time I won't be a spectator, I'll be a player.'

Casino director Adrian Brockhouse said: ‘With such a fantastic prize at stake this poker tournament attracted exceptional interest and some very skilled players. All 10 finalists played immaculately but it was Dan Fargher who emerged triumphant. We wish him well for a great time in Las Vegas and every success at the tables.'
