Our colleagues at Winamax caught up with former Reading and Lens footballer [Removed:30] earlier today.

After retiring from the game three years ago after eight years of football, including five at Reading, Kebe has now turned his hand to poker. Since 2014 he has earned $128,000 in live poker tournaments.

"Until recently I did not know much about poker when I was playing in a tournament," he said. "But recently for the last few months I've gotten more interested so I'm trying to play more and more. That's why I came here.

According to Kebe he used to predominantly play cash games but now has switched to tournaments.

"Tournaments are completely different but I like the competitive side. It's my character, just like it was in football."

And perhaps a new professional career in poker looms?

"We'll see in the future!"

For now Kebe says that he just wants to get through the day without any problems "and just put chis in the bag at the end of the day."
