More proof that Kenny Hallaert loves the game perhaps more than any previous November Niner.

Usually after making the WSOP Main Event final table your attention turns towards quitting your job, spending your winnings and trying to find a sponsor. 

November Niner Kenny Hallaert has proven he is perhaps the biggest poker fan ever with how he plans to spend the four-month break. 

He currently sits 4th in chips at the WSOP Main Event final table, a position which would earn him $2,574,808 if he held onto it. However, he has just announced that he is joining Unibet....as a tournament director. 

Giving something back

In a press release he stated:

I’m very happy to be part of the Unibet Open team. I have already played some of these events in the past and always had a good experience. Now I want to give that same experience to the players.

This is not the first time Hallaert has given back to the poker community. He is already well known for compiling a free spreadsheet every year during the WSOP giving grinders a complete overview of all the tournaments in and around Vegas during the series. 

He is guaranteed at least $1 million in November when he returns to the WSOP Main Event final table, but will be playing for a first prize of $8 million.
