Earl Barron can multitask.
The journeyman center played the $1,111 buy-in World Series of Poker Little One for One Drop event today.
In between playing actual cards at the table Barron was busy playing virtual cards on the Open-Face Chinese Poker app on his iPad.
The 7"-tall Barron has history of playing poker (he picked it up while playing for the Miami Heat) and has cashed for over $70,000 in live tournaments.
We did a video interview with Barron at the WSOP in 2012 and he mentioned that he loved poker but had a hard time fitting it into his scheduling considering the amount of training he had to do for basketball.
Perhaps now that he’s not playing basketball (although he is still technically a free agent) he has a little more time to devote to poker.
He certainly looked comfortable at the WSOP considering he was playing two forms of poker at the same time.
