You mean EPL? No, I mean EPT … the European Poker Tour. Apparently Inter’s Christian Vieri has got the Texas Hold’em bug … and plans to play in the EPT’s Championship at Monte Carlo. That’s the big-boy across the pond, and you can only imagine the sharks are happy to add some Serie-A money to the prize pool. At the same time, every so often a world-class competitor on another field surprises the poker-peeps and shows he can play.
Anyhow, Go Poker, Go Soccer, and Go Christian Vieri.
You can pretty much rest assured, with Poker Stars, at a minimum he’ll get a nifty sponsorship deal out of it.
