Record Attempt At Strip Poker Championship Could Lose Losers Their Shirt

DUBLIN, Ireland (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – It’s easy to lose your shirt playing high-stakes poker, but losing is more fun when you’re playing in the biggest strip poker party ever staged.

It’s scheduled to take place on August 19 in London and tournament spokesman Paddy Power admitted the whole thing started out as a “prank.”

Power says the tournament will have 200 players and the person who has the most clothes on at the end will win $10,000 in cash and prizes.

Sadly for Power, his company was “not allowed to ask for photos during players registration,” which took place online.

He’s hoping a few models from the bikini magazines will be playing – but so far, he’s only recognized some of the top online poker players’ names.

But, he adds: “One of those guys already told us, ‘This is gonna be the easiest 10 grand I ever win.”’
