Reports have just surfaced that an 84-year old man from Canada has qualified for the upcoming PokerStars tournament set to be held in the Bahamas.
The man, Morris Dadoun, has been playing poker for over 40 years, and will join a group of over 250 people from 10 different countries whom also qualified for this exciting poker tournament.
Dadoun commented on his recent qualification, and credits his “risk taking” for allowing him to advance into the tournament. “I have taken chances in business, and it worked. I do the same in anything I do.” He told CBC News.
“I never even thought about the age of the other players,” said Dadoun, “What I think I can do, I will do it. It doesn’t matter how old I am.”
That’s the right attitude to have. It remains to be seen whether the senior player can win, but his playing in the tournament is an achievement in and of itself. The tournament will begin on January 6th and ends on January 14th.
