Poker and beer aren't usually natural bedfellows (just ask Scotty Nguyen) but one Danish player has shown that combining both can sometimes be a profitable venture.
Soren Eriksen, who is now based in New Zealand, took $120,000 of his poker tournament winnings and ploughed it into a new business venture brewing his own beer. His 8-Wired Brewing label has proved very successful, winning a gold award at a respected beer industry awards ceremony.Speaking to the New Zealand Herald newspaper Eriksen explained why he didn't try to expand his bankroll via the conventional manner, “I never wanted to be a professional poker player because it's not a very nice environment," he said. “Sure, I could probably make good money grinding the games in Vegas, but I would go nuts within weeks.”Judging by the his success it looks like he made the right decision.Keep up to date with all the news from the poker world by following us on Twitter and Facebook.
