Got a connection to a poker celeb? Share it with us to win!

By RTR Dennis

My dear old Grandma – who does an uncanny impersonation of the Queen by the way! – was lucky enough to play a swift game of poker with legendary pro Phil Hellmuth at RakeTheRake’s English Poker Open. I’m not entirely sure if Phil Hellmuth thought he’d had the pleasure of taking tea with her real royal highness but he was certainly on his best behaviour and managed to keep a lid firmly on those infamous 'Brat blowouts'.

If you have some tenuous, funny, or even downright brilliant connection to a poker celebrity then we’d love to hear about it - picture evidence is even better! Tell us about your connection to a poker pro or celebrity on this RakeTheRake forum thread. There will be prizes for the five best ones – including RakeTheRake long-sleeves, polo shirts, and hoodies!

The competition runs from now until Friday 13th July. Winners will be announced the following Friday (20th July), and all prizes will be dispatched within 28 days of winners being announced.

And if you'd like the chance to rub shoulders with some serious poker pros and celebs in 2012 (and take a shot at grabbing a share of the $250,000 guaranteed prize pool) then secure your seat for this year's English Poker Open now! Visit the English Poker Open 2012 site for more details.
