Blond hair, then pink, then shaved head again. Eclectic, talented, almost spoiled. He recently appeared in the stands as a 21st Century Best in white fur. Among the latest statements made, he said that he does not know if it is more difficult to bluff at the green table or to take a penalty. His name? Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior, known as O’Ney. One of those in love with poker. One of those who also knows how to do very well at the Counter-Strike: GO shooter.

In short, it could happen that you find yourself at the same table as you, in one of the many online poker tournaments and stand up to the soccer star without even knowing it. But only after his retirement. In fact, the PSG forward, former cultural ambassador of a well-known brand in the sector, would have declared that he wanted to make a fortune and a career at the green table when he stopped playing football. From passion to passion, always with an eye on the wallet, in short. Because if you know how to do it, you can also make money at poker tournaments. The Brazilian claims to have started in 2014, during the World Cup played at home in Rio, but also in Barcelona he perfected the technique together with teammate Piquè while in Paris Navas and Paredes keep him company at the green table. Anyone who still has doubts about Neymar’s visceral love for cards can be safely denied by another sensational personal anecdote: his dog is called none other than Poker. But to become an ace amateur players are not enough, professionalism is needed. For this Neymar befriended Andrè Akkari, Brazilian, green-gold poker champion, in the top ten carioca players of all time with over 90 appearances at the final tables and earnings over $ 500,000 in the largest tournaments in the world. Watch out then, to play against Neymar remotely.

But Neymar, in addition to being a star of the e-sports played, including the Counter-Strike: GO shooter, has also become one of the protagonists of the multi-platform Fortnite which recently churned out new skins including the garden gnome Grimbles, Tender Fender , Peely Bone, Meowscles, Lil Whip, Fishstick, Beef Boss and even things like The 80s Jumpsuit and Bunny Costume. Neymar’s skin, also released in April 2021, comes with a variant. No football, no European clubs, no PSG. In its place, a colorful version of Marvel’s Black Panther that already inflames video game and football fans. Speaking of football, sports and video games, O’Ney – which by assonance obviously recalls the legend O’Rey Pele – is not the only one to fly from the green rectangle to the green table. To keep him company there are also other big names in world football, especially from past decades. For example, Ronaldo, not that of the TOTY of Fifa 2021, but the first, the original Luis Nazario de Lima who made the fortunes of Inter: just think that instead of viewing the 2015 Golden Ball ceremony he chose the tournament of poker in the Bahamas. Not bad as found, considering the final proceeds he brought home: $ 42,000. Among the legendary names of the sport are those of the tennis player Boris Becker, the footballer Teddy Sheringham, the boxer Audley Herrison, the MMA athlete Martin Kampamm, the NFL football player Richard Seymour and the very blonde Dutch field hockey Fatima Moreira de Apple tree.
In short, watch out for playing the green table remotely because you could find some celebrities with a bankroll that is really difficult to equalize. Also watch out for multiplayer like Fortnite, because maybe you could find Neymar’s skin as a battlemate, led by him: O’Ney in flesh and blood behind the console!
