Ha yeah, would be funny if he turned up to play in his LIDL uniform instead of the usual kind of sponsors.

Anyone know how he got on, I'm guessing not well as there has been no follow up story. Tried Google but couldn't find anything, maybe someone here from Sweden might know?

He was the first one to get eliminated at the final table: 10th place hNz
He won around €5000. A couple of months work at LIDL :oP

This must have been a dificult decision. Ok, so having a job in Lidl can be a not very good thing, but that means he probably hadnt had a chance to get a better one. If he had the idea that getting better than 10th place would be a almost impossible job, than that way he made a wrong joice. But if he thinks he can do something good out of that tourney and he already have enough chips in the hand to achieve his objective, than it was a reasonable choice. If he wins this, all media will be puting him in heaven, and maybe he can even manage to get a better job! If not, at least he has a story to tell in the future...

Haha he was unlucky to finish 10th, but obviously the experience gained is invaluable so he made the right decision, and at least he got some money from it, i was surprised when someone said in another post that he would only get paid if he was placed 1-3.

damn thats a real fanatic- wonder how many of us would do that...i understand him though if the job was not of his liking...that was just a great excuse then, but if he liked his job- was that really worth it?
