Team 888’s Shane Warne Finally Becomes A True Poker Player

Team 888 Captain complains about cards and waiting on players.

You may know Australian Team 888 Poker captain Shane Warne as one of history’s most famous cricketeers. If you are from the US, you probably don’t know him at all. That’s ok, after seeing this video you’ll think of him as just another poker player, a real one-of-the-guys, as Warne has his off-the-felt poker talk as good as any seasoned grinder.

Here he talks about how much fun it was to partake in the $25k Aussie Millions Challenge…it would have been better “if he could catch a hand.” Sure he had AJ vs. 66 for the bustout but before that it was rags over rags, really, you’ve never seen such awful hands. Can he win a race one time? Geez. Seriously, he never had any chips to make a move. And then there’s time it takes some of these guys to make a decision..c’mon, man! Get on with it! Just bad luck.

But, hey, there’s always the Main Event and we’re sure his luck will turn around.
