EPT10 London: John Carew on the transition from soccer to poker star

Laura Cornelius of PokerStars.tv has never looked shorter than she does in this latest video. It's chat with John Carew, the Norwegian footballer, who is playing his second EPT main event, a few years after terrorising Premier League defences for Aston Villa and West Ham.

Carew is only one of many former sportsmen who have turned to poker as a way of getting their competitive fix, although as Carew explains, he is not exactly lacking in projects. He is also acting in a couple of films, working with a betting site and all sorts.
