Sir Alan Sugar tops the list of celebrities gamers would least like to face
A study by an online games casino has found that Sir Alan Sugar is the person gamers would least like to play casino games against.
The survey saw the English entrepreneur and star of BBC1's The Apprentice voted in at first place. The list also included Scottish businessman Duncan Bannatyne, academic Steven Hawking, TV chef Gordon Ramsay and newsreader Sir Trevor McDonald.
Sugar, the former Amstrad chairman, was given 22 per cent of the vote. Duncan Bannatyne, owner of Bannatyne's Health Clubs was tied in second place with theoretical physicist Steven Hawking, each having received 20 per cent of online gaming votes. Sharp-tongued chef Ramsey, famous for his controversial cooking show 'The F Word,' took the votes of 19 per cent of online gamers polled, while 12 per cent of players said they would least like to face ITV News At Ten host, Sir Trevor McDonald.
The survey also revealed that online gamers would least like to play online casino games against actors. The players surveyed suggested that, because of their bluffing skills, film and television actors would be difficult to read.
There are a number of film directors and actors who play poker. In 2006, Hollywood director Jamie Gold won $12 million at the World Series Of Poker, while actors Matt Damon and Ben Affleck have played in a number of international tournaments.
Due to their skills in gambling and speculating, stockbrokers were listed as the second group of people gamers would least like to play. Politicians, accountants and public speakers made up the rest of the list.
