Robbie Dodds will be betting on himself in Las Vegas to come home the best poker player in the country, which would see him walk away with a sum of the £25,000 prize and a £5,000 sponsorship deal lasting a year.
The private tutor, from Wellington, will travel to America to compete at the VEGAS100 event.
Now in its 13th year, the event sees 100 competitors from around the UK who have secured their place at various live qualification tournaments come together to compete.
The event is run by Redtooth Poker, the UK's largest live pub poker league, and is taking place in May next year.
Having already been named the England and Wales Nuts Poker League Champion earlier this year and competing in the UK Finals in Manchester, this will be Robbie's second stint in Las Vegas, having recently represented Team GB in the World League Poker Championships last month.
Martin Green, managing director of Redtooth Poker, said: "We are delighted to finally secure our 100 players for the trip to Las Vegas.
"All have done remarkably well to reach this stage, progressing through from their local pubs to numerous regional and national tournaments.
"These are the best pub poker players in the UK so they fully deserve this once in a lifetime trip to America.
"This year we are celebrating 13 years of the Redtooth Poker League. We continue to grow from strength to strength and have become the event for poker players to take part in.
"You never know, we may unearth the next UK poker star to hit the professional stage in the future."
Robbie will also have the opportunity to take part in an additional tournament in Las Vegas, with more than £4,700 worth of prizes on offer, including a return trip to Las Vegas and a seat into a world series of poker event in 2020.
The Telford card player will be competing against last year's VEGAS100 winner, Tim Osborn, who has taken part in multiple events around the country this year at Grosvenor Casinos as part of his sponsorship prize, with yearly winnings to date totalling £10,000.
