Albert Riera tries his hand at Poker [divider]
Former Galatasaray player Albert Riera entered a poker tournament in Italy and emerged the winner, taking home £182,000 in prize money.
Riera joined the 46 man tournament at the Perla di Nova Gorica casino and finished in first place.
The Udinese player has yet to make a start for the Serie A outfit this season but the Zebrette will be hoping Riera’s luck rubs off on them on the field.
The 32-year-old joined Galatasaray on a €3 million move from Olympiacos in 2011 and went onto make 80 appearances for the Lions.
The experienced winger later joined Udinese and enjoyed a loan spell at Watford.
