The Golden State Warriors point guard was photographed at Remington Bar & Casino in Whitefish, Montana by TwoPlusTwo members.
There’s no word on what stakes or poker variant Curry was playing. But just the fact that he was seen on the tables was enough to get the TwoPlusTwo crowd going. Here are a few interesting comments:
- “driller” – If the dude can play, it is really unfair. One of the best basketball players on the planet, scratch golfer and now this.
- “philfan05” – I heard he blew a 3-1 chip lead.
- “jfound” – yep and he stack the deck the following year.
- “TrustySam” – It seems like some huge stars have been seen playing poker recently – Kevin Hart, Bruno Mars, (Bieber), Steph Curry.
Has Curry Played in the Famed Silicon Valley Game?
Phil Hellmuth loves discussing how he rubs elbows with celebrities. And one of Hellmuth’s frequent topics of conversations is how he plays poker with Warriors minority owner Chamath Palihapitiya along with several Golden State players.
Hellmuth has name-dropped Klay Thompson, Andrew Bogut (former), David Lee (former), Draymond Green, and Andre Iguodala.
We haven’t heard Curry’s name included in this mix, but it’s very possible that he’s stopped by the big game in the past. That said, maybe the 2-time NBA MVP was sharpening his skills for another private game in the Bay Area.
More on Montana Poker Scene
Again, Big Sky Country isn’t the first place that celebrities and poker pros think of when they want to hit the tables. But Montana does offer a thriving charity gambling scene, which has spawned numerous charity casinos and poker rooms.
Perhaps Curry is on a vacation and decided to hit one of the many charity gambling establishments in Montana. Or maybe he just wanted to go somewhere that was more quiet than the average California casino.
