Victoria Coren Mitchell - Writer, Broadcaster & Poker Player

Lincoln Green, Cardiff Blue and Monte Carlo Gold

Sunday, 1 April 2012

  Victoria will be kicking off April in Cardiff, filming a new series of Only Connect for broadcast in the summer (no dates yet, but they’ll be up here when we know them).

  On Tuesday April 10th, Victoria will be the bounty in a special TalkSport poker tournament on PokerStars (8.30pm UK time): £100 available for knocking her out, but you’d need to listen to TalkSport on the day to find out the passwords to play the tournament.

  After that, she’ll be off to Nottingham for the UKIPT event , which this year has a guaranteed £1m prize pool: if you’ve ever fancied playing a tournament in this series, that’s the one to play. £700 to buy in directly, but you can win your way through far more cheaply through satellites on the PokerStars website.

  On Monday April 16th, unless she’s in the final at Nottingham, Victoria will be appearing alongside Ed Miliband and Joanna Trollope on ITV’s topical debate show The Agenda.

  And at the end of the month, the 2011-12 EPT season ends with the grand final in Monte Carlo, where Victoria will be taking another shot at becoming the first ever two-time EPT champion…

  Update: Victoria won the €5,000 Heads Up event at the Monte Carlo EPT, for €58,900, and is very happy about that.
