Success in Poker But Not in Love at Ladbrokes

Kevin Quinlan Heads For Paris Leaving Heads-Up Opponent Behind


Looking for love at Ladbrokes PokerLadbrokes Poker’s first ever Valentine’s Day poker tournament attracted hundreds of players and was a complete success. Although, same could not be said of any much hoped for matches made in poker heaven.

Kevin Quinlan from Portsmouth beat 2,000 opponents and was named the highest male scorer. He then had to face the highest female scorer in the final, 71-year-old Pauline from Scotland.

In the end Quinlan was the one preparing for an all expenses paid trip to Paris for two, plus €500 spending money, and despite being asked by Ladbrokes Poker if he’d like to take Pauline with him, he decided to go his own way.

Quinlan said, “I’m really excited about the trip to Paris. They say it’s the city of love, so who knows, maybe I’ll play my cards right there too.”

Kate McLennan of Ladbrokes said, “We wanted to help play Cupid this Valentine’s Day at Ladbrokes Poker. Sadly it didn’t work with our opponents, but we look forward to attempting a little more matchmaking next Valentine’s.”
