Michael Phelps Wants to Try World Series of Poker Event
Olympian Would Join Long List of Poker-Playing Athletes
Michael Phelps, the darling of the 2008 Summer Olympics, recently told his hometown newspaper that after things at the pool wind down, he’d like to play in a World Series of Poker event.
“I think it would be cool to play in the World Series of Poker,” Phelps told the Baltimore Sun’s Kevin Van Valkenburg. “My game is a little off right now, so I'll have to start improving it a little bit. But I think that would be cool, and it would be cool to meet some of those poker guys.”
