Inside the Mind of a Pro - Davidi Kitai - WSOP 2016
You can take the fan out of football, but you can't take football out of the fan. Even in the middle of the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas (arguably not a location where what Americans call soccer is a major concern), Davidi Kitai couldn't resist the sirens of the UEFA European Championship, taking place an ocean away in France. Having failed to fall back to sleep after waking up at an ungodly hour to watch a game between Poland and Switzerland on TV, our hero is feeling a bit tired upon showing up at the Rio with a long.y. Not the best timing to be lacking in sleep: today is kind of a big day for our hero, who has successfully gone through two long days in the $10,000 6-max event of the World Series of Poker, and is now embarking on the third and last day of the competition with only 20 players standing between him and a fourth career bracelet. Oh well: no rest for the wicked, that's what they say, right? He knows it and we know it: Davidi is gonna have to double his efforts to stay concentrated and accumulate chips.
