GACKT Casually Enters Championship Poker Tournament, Ends in 7th Place

In the continued adventures of legendary visual kei superstar GACKT, he has casually entered into a championship poker tournament known as the Asian Poker Tour.

Outside of being a wildly successful Japanese musician and revolutionizing the visual kei genre over nearly 20 years in the business, GACKT had also recently begun his own Youtube gaming channel where he would play video games mostly in silence while surrounded by a selection of expensive vehicles. That said, it still comes as a surprise that GACKT has suddenly revealed himself as a world class poker player entering this tournament without warning or fanfare, for reasons only known to him.

Perhaps more interesting to note is that out of 96 entrants he placed 7th, winding up in the top 10 poker players in all of Asia. It is crazy to think that along with the many of projects that GACKT is working on, he still manages to find the time to engage in a high-stakes poker tournament, because that is the kind of thing he just does.

In my mind I like to imagine he would have rocked up to this event in his vintage Lamborghini Gellardo, double parked across two disabled parking spaces, exited the vehicle with a steely look on his face, wearing sunglasses and a bizarrely designed leather jacket only to mount a nearby motorcycle, drive through a revolving door into the building, proceed up to the poker table and play through the entire championship tournament on the back of his stolen motorcycle. But hey, that is just my thoughts on how this whole thing played out.

The truth of the matter though is that GACKT simply decided to play some high-stakes poker and did pretty damn well. Good on you GACKT, keep on doing what you do mate.
