Following the success of the first two Virgin Poker Festivals whic were held Birmingham and Newcastle respectively, Virgin Poker held its third event at the largest poker room in Europe, Dusk Till Dawn Poker Room in Nottingham, on Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th June 2008. 259 poker players turned up for the weekend and took part in a two-day live poker tournament all battling for a share of Virgin Poker's £ 32,000 prize pot!
There was no direct buy-in all players had to qulaify through VirginPoker.com, the main tournament saw 259 poker players compete in the 3rd Virgin Poker Festival, . Stephen 'Scarmoosh' Docherty from Carlisle walked away with the £ 10,800 first prize after beating Malcolm Muskett, who took down the £ 6,115 runner-up prize.
Stephen 'Scarmoosh' Docherty won the third Virgin Poker Festival when he hit a six on the river, giving him a pair of tens and sixes with a Queen kicker, which put out Malcolm Muskett's two pair of tens and fives.
To add a Virgin kick to the tournament, players in the main event were given the chance to knock-out key opponents whose heads carried bounties of fantastic Virgin giveaways. For those not lucky enough to win a seat at the main tournament table - or those players who suffered an early exit - side events ran over the weekend giving everyone the opportunity to get involved and be in with the chance of winning 50,000 Virgin Atlantic Flying Club Miles courtesy of Virgin.
Practice tables offered 'live play classes' for less experienced players, while Wii bowling was called back by popular demand.
