Paddy Power Dial A Bet sponsors charity poker tournament in aid of Erskine Hospital

Paddy Power Dial A Bet today announces details of the Paddy Power Charity Poker Open, Scotland’s largest ever poker tournament, which will raise money on behalf of Erskine Hospital.  The tournament will be made up for four heats of up to 500 players and one grand final of 40 players, to be held on Saturday 30th May.
