Diego Garcia Bello from Galicia, Spain, will be joining the superstar footballer and friends for his first ever live poker tournament after winning his place in the home game for free at PokerStars, an Amaya Inc. brand."I am more than happy and delighted with this opportunity," said Bello. "This is amazing! It will be my first time playing live and on top of that I will be sitting with Neymar. It is absolutely great!"

Among those joining Neymar Jr on the felt will be fellow members of Team PokerStars Olympic gold medal hockey player Fatima Moreira de Melo and WSOP bracelet winner Andre Akkari, and Brazilian actor Rafael Zulu.

The Facebook post has already amassed over 560,000 views to date. Fans will be able to see all the action from the star-studded home game in a video posted from noon tomorrow on Neymar Jr's Facebook page.
