Aussie poker playing grandpa wins millions

    A Jewish grandfather from Australia celebrated winning £1.2 million in an international poker competition by eating some fruit and going back to work.

    David Gorr, who is 68 and has five grandchildren, took the top prize at the Crown Aussie Millions Main Event tournament on Sunday.

    The computer-analyst from Melbourne even went straight back to work after his win. His prize, for which he beat 721 other players, also included a diamond-studded gold bracelet and a trophy.

    Mr Gorr began to play poker as a child when his parents organised charity competitions in the 1940s, and has played ever since.

    Mr Gorr follows another Jewish winner of the same competition last year, Tryon Krost from Sydeny.

    In December, James Bord, from Stanmore, north London picked up the top prize at the 2010 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Europe championship and went home £836,000 better off.
