GROSVENOR Casinos Dealer Pete Sweet successfully defended his title as TCS JOHN HUXLEY’s ”Dealer of the Year” at ICE 2005. The final took place at ICE yesterday where onlookers watched Mr. Sweet, from Rank Group’s London Gloucester casino, overshadow dealers from around the world and win himself a trip to Las Vegas.
The competition this year aimed to find the world’s top dealers, stepping up a level from last year’s European event. Organisers brought together 12 dealers from around the UK, Europe, Latin America, Australasia and South Africa to find the world’s best. Grosvenor Casinos had two entries in the event.
Twice winner Pete Sweet, an inspector at the London Gloucester said: ”To win the competition last year was a complete surprise for me but to win twice is fantastic. The competition this year was a lot tougher but I really enjoyed the challenge and will be more than happy to take part again next year.”
