April 3, 2009 — The second top sporting event on the Magic Moments of Poker tour took place in Milan from 26 to 30 March. Although Carsten Henning was the eventual winner at the poker table, all seven winners of the online qualifiers had a good reason to celebrate — winning a “Train and Meet” weekend with AC Milan. The poker players took part in a training session with the AC Milan squad and got the chance to experience the 2007 Champions League winners up close and personal.
And it’s already full throttle in the online qualifiers for the next stop on the Magic Moments of Poker tour — up for grabs is a racing weekend at the MotoGP in Jerez.
The seven winners of the online qualifiers will never forget the days they spent with AC Milan: an exclusive poker session with host Franco Baresi in the bwin lounge at the San Siro stadium and training with the AC Milan players at the Milanello training center, followed by a game. Not only did the 26 years old German Carsten Henning get to show off his football skills on the pitch, he also won at the televised poker table and will now take part in the MMOP final.
The bwin Magic Moments of Poker tour will be stopping off at some of the biggest football clubs and top sporting events in Europe: Real Madrid, AC Milan and FC Bayern Munich, FIBA, a MotoGP race weekend in Jerez and even an action-packed stay on PokerIsland. Qualifiers for the next stop on the Magic Moments of Poker Tour are already underway.
