Tags: charity, childrens hospice, football player, Max Kruse
Posted on Tuesday, April 28, 2015 by "T".
German football professional Max Kruse proved his poker skills last year when he took third in Event #36: $1,500 No-Limit 2-7 Draw Lowball at the World Series of Poker. He received $36,494 in prize money that time. A few weeks ago, he won €50,000 Euro in the German television show Pokernacht (Poker Night), where he competed against other celebrities.

Fair play to this guy for doing this and i really think that this is an outstanding gesture on his behalf. We all know footballers earn a fortune and this is just a drop in the ocean for him but he didnt have to do it so i say well done to him again

I don't think the wages in the German league are as crazy as the English premier league and I am sure he is very well paid but it is always good to hear that the money has gone to a good cause.
Also surprising that this was no limit 2-7 draw lo ball event as in these events you do see some very good players who specialise in these types of game,so he is obviously someone who can play well.

hands down for the lo ball pro max kruse Worship yeah wages in bundesliga are at least twice lower compared to premier league on average, but still most of the young dudes running on the field (as long as they play in top 10 teams or so) are millionaires. i always think that those same dudes would put in same effort if they were paid 10-100 times less, but that's the crazy world we're living in...

he is pro football player in germany
which means he get paid lot of money
so he really can afford to make this generous donation
good for him
i wish i can someday make a nice living that i can donate 50K easily
2-7 is nice and tricky game of poker
and he was able to finish high in a world event which means he has the skill
sport big names are getting involved in poker .. the biggest name is R.Nadal , i hear he plays in pokerstars

Hello my friends and fellow mobsters

What a nice gesture for Max Kruse and for me it does not matter the wage he gets from his football team
He made a donation to help those in need and that is at least by my book a very good action Worship Worship
How many people are that have earned more than him and not have donated nothing

Nice very nice Thumbs Up Thumbs Up

Don´t forget to be happy and enjoy life

What a fantastic gesture. We often comment that on events like comic relief or Red Nose Day that if every peemiership footballer just gave one day's pay to the charities, there would be a whole load more money available for those people who really need help and support.

This is a continuation of the poker world, because lot of players after a year or some big wins they donate a percentage to charitys or peoples, and help some persons that need, is a huge thing to do, when you have that kind amount of money, and this guy show that not being a poker pro, is ahear of the sitiuation on the poker community and their benefits and things that they do for people that is not rich or have that kind of money in bank accounts.
And after read all the news i see that is a germand person, and for what i see in the last years many of german players have this kind of things to other peoples, maybe is a thing that community in german have, the power of help, maybe because they can or not.

Yeah, but what about asking him to donate his one month's worth wage and keep this poker money. That made an even bigger difference IMO. This is just marketing.
