UK Poker Pro Gives Away WSOP Main Event Package To Opponent
Lukas Robinson and Ryan Osman were two of the players taking part in a 2021 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Main Event satellite that took place recently at the Aspers Casino in London, England.
The 2021 WSOP Main Event satellite was giving away a $15,000 package that included a ticket to the $10,000 Main Event and an additional $5,000 that was to be used in travel expenses.
The 2021 WSOP decided to extend its Day1 flights for the WSOP Main Event after the White House announced that it would lift the international travel ban on Nov 08, giving international players a chance to make it just in time for the WSOP Main Event.
GGPoker and LADbible came together to host this WSOP Main Event satellite event. LADbible put together a OnlyHands Community Facebook group live event meet-up in October that gave four qualifiers an opportunity to play against new UFC star Paddy Pimblett and Lukas “RobinPoker” Robinson.
The heads up battle came down to Robinson and Ryan Osman who has played poker on and off for the last few years. Osman was recently laid off from his IT job where he has worked for the last 9 years. He was keen on winning the WSOP Main Event package and going to Las Vegas to see if he can have a good run at the Main Event.
It did not work out for Osman as he ended up going down to Robinson who took the first place and the WSOP Main Event package.
Osman Moved To Tears
Osman received a very pleasant surprise when he found out that Robinson had decided to give him the WSOP Main Event package worth $15,000. Robinson told him that he already had a booking to Vegas and was planning to play the WSOP Main Event and felt like giving it to him.
Osman who collected £1,000 for his second place finish was moved to tears with Robinson’s kind gesture as he knows that if he ends up having a good run at the 2021 WSOP Main Event he could end up with a lot more than £1,000.
Robinson said he knew that Osman had lost his job and wanted to do something that would help the former IT professional and he though giving away his WSOP Main Event package would be a nice gesture.
