Football and poker together
The connection between poker and football is definitely new, as there are many stars from both fields that enjoy the pleasures of both games.
The most recent example came from top Brazilian football stars from the past – Ronaldo and Bebeto, who met at a poker table, thanks to PokerStars, which initiated the game, while promoting its poker mobile application in Brazil.
The two Brazilian stars that helped their team bring the 1994 World Cup trophy home played against each other, and as Bebeto explained he wanted to play Texas hold’em hands in heads up against Ronaldo, in order to see for himself that poker is really as amazing as his former teammate insists.
He said: “He [Ronaldo] tells me that [poker] is a sport based not on luck, but on a lot of strategic thinking, so it makes me curious to understand the game more.”
On the other hand, Ronaldo already knows the virtues of poker, as he is member of Team PokerStars SportStar and proves that he’s a virtuoso not only on the football field, but also at the poker table.
He commented: “I play poker almost daily. I have been travelling around the world playing poker, visiting lots of countries and taking part in some important tournaments.”
It is very interesting that Ronaldo was not aware of the fact that he’ll play against Bebeto, as PokerStars organized the event in a way the opponents stayed mysterious, hidden behind a dark curtain, therefore the surprise was complete and very successful.
