WATCH: Shane Warne hits the GC for World Poker Tour

Shane Warne is ready to show the Gold Coast his poker face.

The cricket legend is on the glitter strip to play in the World Poker Tour Australia Main Event, which is currently underway at The Star Gold Coast.

Speaking to myGC, Shane said his poker game is much like his cricket game.


“Strategy and tactics was huge part of my [cricket] game,” he said. “Poker is a great social game, it’s a great game of skill and for me, poker is a great synergy with my cricket because it is also all about strategy and tactics.

“It’s a world class field, but I back myself to do well in this event.

“I’ve just got to be a little bit more patient. I used all my patience on the cricket field.”
