Michael van Gerwen was not playing the UK Open Qualifiers last weekend because he decided to prove his luck at a professional poker tournament. He played the Partypoker Big Game with professional players like Dust Till Dawn, Rob Yong, Sam Trickett, Viktor Blom, Philipp Gruissem and Yair Bitouin (also known as ‘The Wolf’). It is a 36 hours tournament with a buy-in between 20.000 and 40.000 euro.
Van Gerwen already proved he can play poker pretty well as he did win a hand between all these professionals. You can see Van Gerwen’s win in the video below and if you scroll down even further you will see he even has a fan at the table.
