He is playing in a team. So that amount he has won probably isnt something important. Probably he entered just for the fun of the game. If the prize was a couple of millions, then we could say, that it did really meant something for him also.
This is quite interesting ..... When a player involved in game sports makes more success in poker ..... It seems that he is doing well with concentration .... and he can try to achieve more in the game of poker .... maybe .... but maybe this is his highest achievement

Yes very interesting situation i too the no, but he pay 3.500 for buyin and he say it is biggest buyin he pay for poker game, but to him professional soccer player i personally think it is very small money so he not feel any stress to lose money
HA! He is a professional athlete even though there is not a truckload of money in MLS like in NFL or NBA I still cannot believe that a decent poker player like him did not play a tourney with a buyin bigger than 3k before. At least he could've try the WSOP ME for 10k once.

Brent Kallman has not been registered in this tournament just to have fun. He specified that: he had some nerves at the beginning of the game. In the next day he relaxed and played ,,in his own style''. If he played stressed in the next day, he probably will not be able to advance too much in this tournament. Relaxation and abilities gave him a $ 62 k prize. Not bad.
