The Australian pokerist-millionaire has decided to play on Wimbledon
James Obst who is included in the top ten pokerist of Australia has decided to replace an occupation. Now he thinks only of tennis and wants to fulfill the dream. The known Australian pokerist James Obst who last year has won a champion bracelet of a World series in Las Vegas has decided to suspend for some time the poker career for the sake of a children's dream. According to James, he always wanted to participate in the Wimbledon tournament! He even seriously played tennis, but in 16 years because of problems with health with ambitions on court it was necessary to say goodbye. And now the Australian wants to give himself new chance. "I sincerely believe that I will be able to make it now — 27-year-old James says. — I have solved the majority of problems with health and is ready to fulfill the dream. Of course, so far I am very far from optimum physical shape, but I will work on it". Obst's post on Twitter was supported by very many known pokerist. Vanessa Selbst, for example, has offered the Australian joint trainings with professionals and fans. However, some with scepticism have treated this invention, having hinted that on court James will definitely not earn so much money, as at a poker table. The Australian became the poker millionaire, being still a teenager and having untwisted in online. Later achievements and in live tournaments have come — James has already earned nearly $3,000,000 in offline and on this indicator closes top-10 the most successful players of Australia. And WSOP he has won the first and still only bracelet last year in the championship across Razz from bay-other $10,000. By the way, this year in the Main event of the World Obst series I have taken quite high 46th place. How successful will be tennis career of the Australian — so far questionable. But if he is also purposeful and ambitious, then, perhaps, once will fulfill the dream and will appear on the main court of the Wimbledon tournament.
