888 Poker latest: New video series featuring Football legends, XL Series in January

Football Legends Paul Ince and Wayne Bridge in the 888 new video series #HEADSUP

888Poker have been busy lining up promotions, a tournament series, and a new TV Show with former England international footballers. Paul Ince, and Wayne Bridge are the new names on the roster, and they immediately take on roles as co presenters for a new video series called “#HEADSUP.” Ultimately, the series simply boils down to two ex footballers sat round a poker table chatting, while playing a friendly game of poker. There isn't much in the way of strategic insight, but for those who like football and enjoy seeing two good players talking about the old days, it could be entertaining.
