The World Poker Tour Seminole Rock ‘N Roll Poker Open saw its field whittle down from 52 players to just 14 on the third day of play with tour regular James Rann grabbing the chip lead. Heading into the fourth day of play on Tuesday, however, a lot of eyes will be on MLS player Brent Kallman who represents his Minnesota United FC both at the poker tables and on the pitch.
Don’t miss the final table of this event live on PokerGO on Wednesday at 12:30 pm ET with live commentary provided by Dave Farra and Jamie Kerstetter.
While Rann’s chip lead with 5.8 million chips is still a while away for Kallman, his 1.5 million chips puts him comfortably in the middle of the pack. According to an interview on WPT.com, Kallman enjoys a game of poker in the off-season and this is his largest buy-in tournament to date. Kallman has played for Minnesota United FC since its inaugural season in 2016 and extended his contract last week.
