Shane Warne gambles big on new career path, by Luke Dennehy - 16th January 2008

He conquered the world of cricket and now Shane Warne is about to embark on a new career - as a professional poker player.

The Herald Sun can reveal that Warne has signed with poker giant 888.com to play poker around the world, including the prestigious World Series of Poker won famously by Aussie Joe Hachem in 2005.

Warne was excited yesterday at his new challenge, which will see him travel to the US, UK, New Zealand and possibly South Africa with 888.com this year with more dates possible around the world.

"Nothing will replace the 20 years of cricket in my life but there are a lot of similarities," he said.

"It's a game of skill that has a lot of analogies to cricket.

"You have to be very, very disciplined.

"I'm really excited. Hopefully this will replace the competitive spirit that I had with cricket."

Warne's interest in poker developed from playing with mates over the past five years to a professional career after becoming good friends with Joe Hachem and his brother Tony.

He sees the Hachem family every week.

"Joe and Tony have taught me a lot, and what excellent teachers to have," he said.

"But my attitude is I've got a lot more to learn about the game."

Warne, who quit cricket last year after two decades on tour, said part of the enjoyment of retirement was not being away from home and family and friends for months.

His poker career won't have the same travel demands.

"The travel is different. It's obviously not like a cricket tour and will be in small stages," Warne said.

As well as the poker, Warne said he has been kept busy by other sponsor commitments.

"It's been great, I've been enjoying doing lots of different things and it's been great to spend heaps of time with the kids," he said.

Warne's first hit-out with 888.com will be at the Aussie Millions at Crown today.

He expects to be a little nervous, but he is looking forward to playing more and heading overseas soon.
