When organisers of this year's Poker in the Park said there would be some big hitters at this year's event we didn't think they were talking literally. Hitters don't come much bigger than current WBF World Champion Evander Holyfield who will be appearing at Europe's biggest poker festival with best casino bonuses.
As the man on the receiving end of the Mike Tyson's infamous ear bite Holyfield knows all about the importance of fair play, and he'll be taking that attitude onto the virtual poker felt.
Holyfield stated, “Why didn’t someone think of this sooner? If I’m playing poker, I like to know I am playing with real cards and not just a computer. RealDealPoker.com is a poker room I’m very proud to be associated with.”
Poker in the Park takes place in London's Leicester Square on Thursday 2nd and Friday 3rd September 2010 and will feature poker lectures, poker tuition, video poker league ,poker events, and of course, the chance to meet some of the biggest names in poker, and world sport.
