Neymar wins seat at World Series of Poker in two-table satellite

Brazil might have crashed out of the Copa America early, but at least Neymar went home a winner this weekend.

The Barcelona star, who is sitting out the Copa in favour of the Olympics later this summer, earned himself a seat at the World Series of Poker after winning a PokerStars event in Las Vegas.

While his Brazil teammates were preparing for Sunday's game against Peru in Massachusetts -- a game which they shockingly lost 1-0 -- Neymar was the last man standing in a two-table satellite event.

The prize was a spot at July's main event, which features a $10,000 entry fee, but Neymar's busy football schedule won't allow him to return for a chance at the multimillion-dollar tournament.

While in Vegas, Neymar also attended a pool party, where he met up with tennis star Serena Williams.
