The ring in the bathtub.
A rotten peach, desperate for air at the bottom of a bowl.
A hairy arse.
Scrabble tiles partying with a half-full glass of red, lipstick smeared around the rim.
It doesn’t matter who we are, what we look like, or what hellhole of a shack that we live in, we are social beings - desperate to not only belong to a tribe but to ensure that you choose a seat towards the top of the food chain.
Who gets to eat first?
Life is about status, and nobody knows this more than 888poker.
Enter Bros Vs Pros l
In December, while you were asking Amazon to choose your Christmas gifts, James Williams was beating Derek Lawless, heads-up, to bank the £121,000 first prize in the 888poker LIVE London Main Event, and three lads from Dundee, Scotland were having the time of their lives.
Life is a game of snakes and ladders, and the Dundonian, Richard Sim, found himself on the tallest ladder of all when he won the $1 Bros v Pros Promotion to book a trip to 888poker LIVE London for himself and two of his closest friends.
The three amigos got to play in the £1,100 Main Event (one of them, Blair Armstrong-Payne visited the cashier to collect £2,000). They sat down with the likes of Michael Mizrachi, Dominik Nitsche and Vivian Saliba to play a cash game, and were escorted to an Arsenal v Spurs match by the former World Series of Poker (WSOP) Main Event Champion, Scott Blumstein.
It’s safe to say that after a weekend like that it will be a long time before Sim finds himself standing on the head of a snake.
And now it’s your turn.
