Since then poker has enjoyed a growth in the states which has led to many more tournaments, bigger prize money, and televised events. Lots of players have even reached celebrity status.

Nice enough guy, but his wife was a real nit-picky beyotch ....Having to listen to her yap & complain every friggin day for 3 months was enough to make man go insane

    I like any player that isn't a fucking douchenozzle who thinks he's some kind of rockstar. Fuck your stupid gimmicky hats, clothing or sunglasses.

    Oh, and I don't like watching the gooks play.

    This was 20 years.. Is he even still actively playing ?? .. The dude had the life...He'd sleep until about 11am everyday & then leave to the Bicycle Club to play Poker every night around 6.... He had 7 bedroom home with an indoor swimming pool... And then we built him him a 3 bedroom "weekend" condo overlooking the ocean in Huntington Beach (that the wife complained incessantly about) ... ALL from playing cards for a living...
