Competition heats up for tickets to Vegas as Sky Poker's Viva Las Vegas Promotion hits its final month!
The Sky Poker Viva Las Vegas promotion is now headed into its third and final month and things certainly look to be heating up as players play for those precious Vegas trips!
For 3 months, Sky Poker has held a Viva Las Vegas final, where 1 in every 10 players will win a Viva Las Vegas package. The dream gift for any online poker fan, the package offers winners a trip to the poker capital of the world, Las Vegas, with an all-expenses visit to the Nevada hot spot - worth up to £10,000!
April's final has just closed with a bang, making way for May's exciting final showdown. Lasting an astonishing 3 hours and 40 minutes and finishing just before 1 am on Monday morning, it was poker at its very best.
The outcomes were exciting, with 23 runners altogether. On the bubble for third place were MattBates and Kimpet. MattBates went all guns blazing with a pair of 8s, which trumped Kimpet's ace high, putting him through to the final 3. The bubble resulted in both RYAN1983 and JAKALLY going all in with Ryan1983 riding on his ace-seven, while JAKALLY held ace-queen. When the board ran out 2-2-K-J-T, it was JAKALLY who won the hand after making a straight to the ace.
JAKALLY and MattBates have both won their exclusive seat in the Vegas Grand Final, playing through a stellar field to secure their well-earned spot. However, there's still another month to go and a chance for players to get involved for the last part of this fantastic promotion!
