God Check-Raise the Queen

The WSOP-E gets underway today … and as part of the celebratory ti-doo, they’re unveiling celebrated Lego artist James Fentiman’s latest work at the Casino at The Empire, Leicester Square … an image of the Queen constructed out of £1 million worth of poker chips. (2,000 checks in total.)

Umm, OK … pardon my Yankeeness, but I don’t see it!

Really? Really? There’s a queen in there, LOL? I guess that’s just how fine art works.

The Mary Lou Retton of Poker?

Righteous kill indeed!
