It's been a while since we've heared anything from Brian Townsend, but apparently it's not because he's been chillin' out at some beach or something like that. Believe it or not, but the American high stakes poker pro has been training day and night for an upcoming Sahara Desert Race and therefore had very little time to spare for poker. Townsend is doing the race together with a friend who tried[...]   Read more » Brian Townsend to Run 156 Miles Through the Sahara Desert!

That's some extreme excercise / sports if I must say so myself especially for someone who is used to sitting around the felt to enjoy his time. It's good to know that there's guy's like this that are diversified enough to take on something totally out of the ordinary. At least it's unique to me!

These are good news for Brian Townsend, it can only mean that his job at the tables is going so well that even gives him time to stop and have fun with his friends in other events not related to poker. I’m sure something thrilling like a race in the desert also makes good to the brain, helping him releasing the pressure that he is used to, because of his main activity. Just hope he don’t get hurt, after all he’s one the future promises of poker.

Thats a pretty hard task if you ask me, always heat and cold are the biggest enemies when you are talking about a run.

I think now that full tilt poker will open again we will see him once again on the high stakes PLO tables Smile

It's so crazy that almost hard to imagine. Run 156 miles - it's almost impossible to do that! That's nice advertisement for him. And I'm sure that he will be more famous for doing that!
