So I guess most of you know who XJOHN2204X is on poker - the guy who beat Helmuth.

I've just seen on his Facebook page that Betfair are considering using his face as the King of clubs on the cards - don't know if this will be a one off game or on all games.

Anyway, I was asking about this on the poker chat and --MAGGIE-- said if this is going to happen she's going to demand to be one of the Queens.

I think this is a good idea and would like to know when it is going to happen and whether there will be a vote.

Also can we all apply?

Here is the link to the card:

In a running vote on the chat box in poker, --MAGGIE-- has been voted most for Queen of spades.

Chipfire has been voted for Queen of hearts.

Joker has been voted as a Joker (I don't know how that'll work), with XJOHN2204X been voted as King of clubs.

I'll keep a running total from when I see it - please add your own recommendations/applications.

King CLUBS - XXJOHN2204X
Queen HEARTS - Chipfire
Queen SPADES - --MAGGIE--

It has also been mentioned that like the ipad competition, there should be a competition to win signed packs of these playing cards.

Betfair will do this I'm sure

I have downloaded the card for you to see - I guess this is just an example of how it will look

TBH i dont think this will happen.

i read that john has just signed a deal with the wsop where hes gonna b the face of the wsope next year.
due to this, i really dont think betfair will be able to afford someone with such a high profile!

and with helmuth winning both main events this year means johns just gotten better without even doing anything!

i actually feel sorry for helmuth,... hes been in poker since john was playing abacus, and after 13 bracelets he still cant forget that life destroying day when he met the undisputed world champ.

in a 2011 report on john, ladbrokes casino stated "without a doubt this man stares destruction right in the face, and makes a solution out of the peices of rubble!"

in 2010 (dec 19th) it is roumered that john was forced to resign playing at genting casinos because his income from poker in each casino was so high it was pushing him way over the 40% tax bracket per week!!! ....now incase u dont kno...thats 50grand a week!!!

without a question of a doubt this man is the one weve all been waiting for!!

he looks just like some average builder, maybe even a milk man..... but make no mistake.... the only cow is the tables, and john sure is milking it!!!

That sounds like bad news Shlimpy. Is this deal confirmed or just a rumour?

Maybe this card idea is as a goodbye and thank you to everyone that he's won money off?

Is John funding this 'King of clubs' card game himself and bringing in his own technicians to oversee it?

I wonder if he's also putting a bounty on his head in the game, along with adding to the pot from the start.

Either way I'm looking forward to this game - any ideas of a date or is it still at the ideas stage?

How come Betfair never announce things like this? It's great publicity and it would be and bring the punters flocking in I'm sure

I've just looked on the Facebook page for more information. It doesn't say any more but now there's this card on.

I don't know who it is but I'm assuming it's --MAGGIE--. Does anyone know?

i did some reading and saw john is in talks about appearing on skypoker tv as a presenter...it seems all these companys are trying to hire john with the clause that he wont play on the sites and therefore wont cause controversy with his endless winning streak! ...and as much as it sounds like a joke.....this is fact!!

i managed to get to talk with daniel negranu at the wsope after helmuth won, and after some conversation he muttered in a disclosed voice..."wheres john wen u need him"... it was quite amusing. if you see the video interview of helmuth after his win, you can see he is upset about something before he starts to talk.... well thats because someone handed him a leaflet about a heads up game john was planning. ...of course he turned down the offer.....

probably wasnt the best feeling winning the wsope and then seeing a full face image of the guy who made u just another average player!!!
