Leading the way into Day 2 is Ole Schemion who bagged up 393,600 thanks to some big pots during the last stages of the day.

I guess from a purely sychophantic perspective, its all about doing your best to be the best at whatever it is you choose to do. You guys chose not to be footballers and probably also not very good poker players! (I could be wrong though!)

This is quite of surprise actually, i never heard before that he also plays poker.

It's interesting to see that more and more sport players also explore the poker action Smile

so i guess he is "seriously injured" since he doesn't have to show up in training and travel with team to matches...if that's really the case, then i don't see anything wrong here, i think he earns ~100K a week, so that buy-in of 10K looks really funny to him...and when you play relaxed, with no stress over the money matter- you usually do a lot better huh?

Why the f**k not I guess.

When failing to defend well, and tired from banging Shakira in the sound booth - why the f**k not.

Plenty sports people love poker - and in Spain in think poker is pretty popular.

It's been a rough year for the footballer, but at least he has his millions of dollars to ease the pain.
26-year-old Gerard Piqué has taken the No. 1 spot on People With Money’s top 10 highest-paid footballers for 2013 with an estimated $82 million in combined earnings.

In 2011 it looked like the footballer’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Sunday (September 8) that Piqué is the highest-paid footballer in the world, pulling in an astonishing $82 million between August 2012 and August 2013, a nearly $50 million lead over his closest competition.

So, it looks like that 10 K Euro buy-in is his 1 hour income. Agree

This guy has got it all. Plays football for the best team in the world, has got a drop dead gorgeous girlfriend and plays high roller poker in his spare time. We call this High Roller but to him its one mornings pay!
