Sports Legends Challenge

“Sports Legends Challenge” intriguing! Poker = sport …I bet DC Examiner Matt Pusateri “what is — and isn’t — a sport” has a different definition for sport “a competitive human athletic endeavor in which winners and losers are determined by objective scoring or time.” Should it really matter whether poker should be viewed as a sport game? All I know is that I really love playing poker, be it online or offline 40% luck and 60% game of skill or not, I am really looking forward to a nice vacation and enjoy to the fullest the upcoming “Sports Legends Challenge” tournament to be held in the Bahamas next month, sponsored by no less than one of the biggest poker rooms online, Absolute Poker.

25 of each kind

This is where 25 sports legends and 25 poker professionals, including Sugar Ray Leonard, Kareem Abdul Jabbar and Bobby Hull … poker pros Antonio Esfandiari, Johnny Chan and Jamie Gold participate. A 10k buy-in will probably have you sitting in the same table with some of the pros at some point, be it luck or skill! I wish you both in this 2,200 seat tournament that not only will give us lovers of the game something to talk and write about, especially if someone unknown in the media makes it big taking the top price along with the bragging rights in kicking some ass on the way to the final table. Hey! This is just my dream vacation, poker, sunny beaches, and a whole lot of after party clubbing!
