There’s at least one pro who’s decided to skip the potentially lucrative games, however:
3) Neymar and Ronaldo Raise it Again
PokerStars’ Raise It campaign continues to generate some pretty great viral content from Neymar Jr. and Ronaldo.
Here are the latest contributions (that last egg trick by Neymar is pretty slick):
