  • Xbox Series S
  • PlayStation 5
  • gaming laptop
  • $500 cash

From the pitch to partypoker

The bounty on Terry becomes the largest amount ever offered in the Community Knockout. During his playing career, Terry won five Premier League titles, the UEFA Champions League, the UEFA Europa League, five FA Cups, and three League Cups with Chelsea.

He also represented England at four major international tournaments, earning 78 caps for his country.

After retiring from playing in 2018, Terry became an assistant coach at Aston Villa. His efforts helped the club win promotion back to the Premier League in 2019.

Terry hopes to bring the same intensity as he played with to the poker felt.

“I will be staunchly defending my bounty, but with a massive $1,000 in tournament dollars up for grabs, feel free to try and beat me and land yourself a big score,” he said.

More football players heading to the tables

Beyond Terry, players will have a shot at eliminating other well-known football players as well.

Gabby Agbonlahor, a former member of Aston Villa, will play for the SPORF community. He represented the Villains almost 400 times, scoring 86 goals.

Former player Kevin Stephens, a social media sensation known as “StevoTheMadMan,” will also participate. He’ll play on behalf of JOE.co.uk and has earned some popularity by filming himself in everyday situations.

Team partypoker’s Patrick Leonard will carry the special bounty for players in the partypoker community.

Any player can enter, but to win the special prizes, players must sign up with any of the participating communities. The bounty prizes can only be claimed on social media by:

  • taking a screenshot of the winning hand
  • sharing it with the community on social media
  • tagging partypoker in the post
