What amazes me, is the fact that these two players from the football club Fc Barcelona, they occupied good places and made good money with professional poker players. Buy-in of 25k euro is not a problem for Gerard Pique or Arturo Vidal because they earn this money in a few days at the club. Their poker game impresses me and they are better at poker.

This is not the first time I've heard that football players win any kind of money .... moreover, good money in poker tournaments .... I don’t know what it is connected with .... maybe the mentality of football players is somewhat similar to the mentality poker players .... I can’t find another explanation ... on the other hand, there is an option that they have a lot of money and a lot of entries in the tournament

Another tournament that you can not see a single player from the usa
in the winners list.
It seems they are losing their touch Smile
No matter what has happened the late years in the poker world, with all the restrictions, bans, etc. i believe that the game is still gaining grounds.
A good thing to see.

didnt expect that football players can have so much time to play poker,when season already started and they have many things to do in club,from training to other stuffs!even its was not big event,only 44 players,still you dont know how much time you will spend!but probably in barcelona everything work just fine!

The season is just beginning and Barcelona lost in the first stage. I sit and i wonder if these two players, played well on the field then. However, they took poker lessons from someone because is not too easy to occupy those very good positions, when you are not a professional player.
