World Series of Poker bracelet winner Barny Boatman, his brother Ross and “Mr Elegant” Joe Beevers have found new sponsors in the shape of British firm Grosvenor Casinos. The trio, who with Ram Vaswani made up the Hendon Mob, will now be known as the Pokermob and have launched a website bearing the same name.
As part of their exclusive deal with Grosvenor Casinos, the Pokermob will relaunch their popular online poker league, which is to be held at Grosvenor Poker at 8:00pm UK time every Tuesday from April 1 through to May 20. The eight-week league ends in a special playoff that is scheduled for May 27.

In addition to receiving one point for entering a leg, points are awarded as follows:
The outright winner of the Pokermob online poker league bags themselves a £550 Grosvenor UK Poker Tour (GUKPT) seat and £200 in cash, while the rest of the top 10 on the leaderboard win a tournament ticket ranging from £5 in value and increasing up to £50.
