Online Poker Site Hosts Sports Legends Challenge

Written By Janice Doughtrey

This is one promotion you don’t want to miss! This fall, online poker site will be offering players a chance to take part in the first ever Sports Legends Challenge in sunny Bahamas!

This tournament could pit you up against some of your favourite sporting heroes. There will be 25 iconic sports heroes taking part including Troy Aikman, Richard Petty, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and many more. Not only will you be playing poker with these guys, you’ll have a shot at winning a piece of the 10 million dollars in prize money!

Now the Bahamas is known for beautiful beaches and clear blue water but they are also known for the impressive Atlantis Paradise Resort and hotel, where the Sports Legends Challenge will take place. September 14th to 17th will be the start date for the tournament and will also be featuring 25 professional poker players as well. So not only will you have Sugar Ray Leonard on one side of you but you’ll have Chris Moneymaker and Annie Duke sitting on the other side!

To try your hand at winning a seat you can compete at The World Poker Store’s site in free, Texas Hold’em tournaments. The Tournament will be helping out a great cause as well: The Butch Kerzner Summit Foundation which helps Bahamian children and youths get active by funding official programs and building facilities.

But if you don’t manage to snag a seat you can still watch all the action on Fox Sports on Thanksgiving Day, when the event is set to be televised nationally.
