Ladbrokes completed its เเทงหวยออนไลน์ Millions tournament at the Hilton Hotel in London, recently. It turned out to be the largest televised event in the history of European Poker. This was primarily due to the big payout of $1,000,000. Tony Jones came out as the winner of this tournament. Many people think, his win was way above that of Chris Moneymaker in the year 2003, at the World Series of Poker main events. Both these players have similar stories as both outlasted large online fields to make it to these prestigious tournaments. Both went on to beat a number of professional players to get the first prize. Presently Ladbrokes accepts bets all over Europe though it remains one of the few sites to avoid all the cash from the online U.S. industry. Pokernews.com reprots:
If poker in Europe follows the United States poker community’s response to Moneymaker beating the odds, European action will explode into almost every facet of its culture, not that it already hasn’t considering Europe’s position on the legality of online poker. If the success and scope of this tournament says anything about online poker in Europe, it says that it is here to stay and it will only continue to grow thanks to a non-poker pro winning this event.
