This athlete finished 8th place at the World Poker Tour Seminole Rock ‘n' Roll Poker Open.
Minnesota United FC defender Brent Kallman missed what could have been his first-ever final table at a major poker tournament.
The 28-year-old soccer pro is making his 2018 offseason quite productive, as he won $62,110 for finishing 8th place out of 898 contenders at the WPT Seminole Rock ‘n' Roll Poker Open.
For the 2018 Major League Season, Kallman earned a total of $85,791.67. A few weeks ago he earned a contract renewal (the terms are not yet publicly revealed).
After he won Kallman said, "I'm having a lot of fun. This is the biggest buy-in I've ever played, so I had a bit of nerves in the beginning, but got off to a pretty good start on Day 1. I kind of settled in and just been trying to have fun and play my game."
When asked who among his teammates also play poker, he said, "We don't have many card players on the team. They're not very good."
