Tony Cascarino ponders another hand at Dusk Till Dawn on Day 1 of the Grand Prix UK Main Event

Tony Cascarino has been taking on the best in the business at poker for many years now, and the former Millwall, Aston Villa and Chelsea man did the same during today's Grand Prix Day 1a Main Event.

Sadly for Cascarino, his efforts did not land him a Day 2 place as he busted a short while ago. He told us exactly how.

"I was busted in exactly the same way I was during the partypoker MILLIONS Main Event. I was all-in with pocket jacks called by pocket nines and he rivered a nine. It's not great, but it's poker, you know?"

Cascarino wasn't going to let busting the Grand Prix end his day at Dusk Till Dawn and he's currently winning in a cash game and as we found out, pleased as punch that his former club Millwall were promoted back to the Championship by winning at Wembley last month.

"I'm absolutely delighted for them, it's great."
