The Connection Between Sports & Poker

However, this is not the first time that sports and poker have been linked and a number of current and former sportspeople have also taken up the card game.

Among these is former tennis pro Boris Becker, who is now a professional poker player, while several hockey players - including Alex Ovechkin of the Washington Capitals and Roberto Luongo of the Vancouver Canucks - took part in a charity poker tournament during the 2009 NHL Awards ceremony in Las Vegas.
