SKY UK Poker Tour – Nottingham

Women poker pro Maria “Chili” Demetriou took first place in Event One of the The Sky Poker UK Tour and a seat into the Grande Finale Event. The inaugural Sky UK Poker Tour began last Saturday at the UK’s grandest card room, Dusk Till Dawn in Nottingham. Demetriou was among 120 players who qualified through online Satellites at as well as live Satellites held at Dusk Till Dawn.

A ton of action was seen by a large turnout of women poker players who showed their poker savoir-faire on the felt.

Maria told interviewers, “There were at least two women on each table which is something I have never seen before.” The UK native went on to say, “To have Sky Poker do a live event and have so many ladies come and play in it is a really great thing to see.”

The six venue tour will culminate with a televised event of The Grande Finale in June, 2009 with a £25,000.00 ($45,455,000 US dollars) Guaranteed Prize Pool.

Maria is slowly but surely making a name for herself on the poker circuit. Her main goal is to win a poker biggie like the European Poker Tour but also admits she “Can’t be too choosy.” She began playing poker professionally in 1997 and prefers playing No Limit and Pot Limit Hold’em.
