With two stops on the Tour behind them and six more to go, The Mob have already accumulated over $140,000US in prize money, played in 14 final table finishes and already have taken home four trophies. The Tour’s next stop is The Irish Winter Tournament commencing on October 23rd and culminating on October 26th at the Merrion Card Casino in Dublin, Ireland.
“We are very pleased with our performance so far and hope that we can continue our winning streak. Our corporate sponsorship from Prima Poker makes a difference not only by allowing us to compete in more tournaments, but by getting the general public supporting our success,” said Mob member Joe “The Elegance” Beevers.
“We believe The Hendon Mob represent the sport well: they’re smart, competitive, successful and like Prima Poker, see the combination of online and offline poker as the most exciting sport today and into the future,” comments a Prima Poker representative.
The Prima Poker Tour (www.PrimaPoker.com) is taking The Hendon Mob on an unprecedented global tour to play in over 60 events, in eight venues, in three continents in an effort to demonstrate that online and terrestrial poker go hand-in-hand. The Tour represents the first major sponsorship in online poker and has elevated its status by introducing it to the media as a mainstream sport.
