Poker Winnings help Max Altergott travel the World

2014-07-06 20:53 by Olsdog

Many people who get into online poker dream of one day earning fame, fortune, and the financial freedom to do whatever they want. Germany's Max Altergott is one of the lucky players who've managed to spin their humble poker beginnings into a pretty sweet life.

Through a segment with PokerStars, Altergott discusses how his early poker days were spent staying in his hometown, sitting in front of his computer. However, this all changed last year when he won the EPT Grand Final Super High Roller along with €1,746,400 ($2,289,970).

Altergott still of course plays a lot of poker. But the $2.3 million score has allowed him to do more traveling and accumulate more life experiences. He now says that he's been to Las Vegas, Macau, Vancouver, the Caribbean and five different countries in Asia.

In addition to traveling, Altergott describes his new lease on poker by explaining how he sees it more as a fun card game. And while he still competes to win, he doesn't take losses so personally any more. See Max describe his personal journey below.
