Before he starts for England in the third Ashes test on Thursday, England spinner Graeme Swann (pictured) was spotted dabbling in a game of poker at the Ritz in Mayfair last week. Among the competitive crowd of players including cricketers James Anderson and Steve Finn and rugby players Danny Care and Ugo Monye, were some faces from the Square Mile – traders from spread betting firm Spreadex. The firm’s senior trader Will Daniels managed to fend off the sporting heroes, making it through to the final hand against Swanny himself. However, unfortunately for our trader, The Capitalist hears that Swann took the trophy with some clever play right at the very end.
