Kalidou wasn't dealt the best hand in his early adult life. His childhood dream was to become a professional basketball player however an injury picked up in a game ruled him out of a career in that. What was even more brutal was a car accident in which he suffered severe burns and life-threatening injuries which thankfully he was able to overcome. Now he's living his other dream of becoming a Team PokerStars player. What this video to see what it means to him.
"To become an ambassador for PokerStars, it's a dream for me," the 38-year-old from Paris, France, said. "Amazing, amazing."
Kalidou plays as "KalidouSow" on PokerStars where you'll be able to rail him regularly online as well as at live events across the world, including a new series of PokerStars-sponsored live events throughout his native France where he will compete and socialise with fans and players.
