Just a year ago, Mats Sundin joined PokerStars as its international celebrity ambassador. In the beginning he didn't have much time to play in many of the major tournaments because he was busy being the captain for the NHL team, Toronto Maple Leafs. One year later he decided to retire from hockey and instead focus more on his job as ambassador for PokerStars.
One of the first major tournaments Mats played for PokerStars was in 2009 WSOP Main Event. He was doing very well in the beginning of the tournament and everyone were really impressed that he wasn't only a good hockey player, but also a decent poker player. However, when the first break started, he made a mistake that could have sent him packing.
When the first break in the tournament started and everyone started leaving their tables, Mats took his poker chips and walked away. What Mats didn't know was that it's against the rules and that many players through WSOP history had to leave the tournament empty handed because of this. Luckily for Mats, one of the PokerStars employees noticed straight away what he did and went up to him explaining that it was against the rules. Thanks to this he could continue the tournament after the break.
