Major League Soccer’s Brent Kallman wins big on the World Poker Tour

You gotta know when to hold ’em, know when to fold ’em, and know when to Brent Kallman.

Minnesota United defender Brent Kallman insists he is not contemplating a career change after a bumper payday at the World Poker Tour’s Seminole Rock ‘N Roll Open.

The 28-year-old won more than $62,000 in four days at the event — an amount just shy of his Major League Soccer salary of $85,000 per year.

Kallman finished two spots from the final table at the tournament, but says he has no plans to give up soccer and become a full-time poker player.

“Nobody has to worry about me; I’ll be back to business and back to training soon here,” he told the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

“That’s always a weird deal when you win that much money in four days, but nothing’s going to change for me.”
