Sports Stars Love Poker
PGA golf star Sergio Garcia has just won $35,000 after finishing in 51st place at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) being held in the Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas.
This win has just come a mere few days after the former Amateur and World snooker champion Ken Doherty won €7,780 after finishing in 14th place at the World Poker Tour (WPT) Ireland.
It seems that poker is a hobby enjoyed by a lot of the world’s top sport stars. Also from the world of snooker we have the six-time former world champion Steve “Nugget” Davis who has $117,441 in live tournament earnings while Jimmy “The Whirlwind” White is a former Poker Million winner.
From the world of cricket Shane Warne is a sponsored 888.com pro with live tournament winnings of $46,101. Onto soccer and former Manchester United European Cup Winner Teddy Sheringham has $298,236 in live tournament earnings including a 5th place finish at EPT Vilamoura in 2010.
Fellow forward Tony Cascarino is another soccer player with some good results to his name as $589,429 in live tournament earnings testify. Even the legendary Francesco Totti once had a deal with PartyPoker.
The greatest ever darts player Phil “The Power” Taylor is also an avid poker player and is regularly playing the TV celebrity tournaments and cash games. In addition PokerStars have their own roster of sports stars who are team pros and they include Boris Becker, Fatima de Moreira de Melo, Gigo Buffon and Gualter Salles.
It seems that a little bit of gamble flows through the blood of all sports stars which is exactly what makes them that little bit special.
