  • Sad Story in the Poker Community

    I just played at the table next to this guy last month. I had no idea how sick he is.

        I just saw that. Super cool!
        Further down that thread I saw he had a GoFundMe page set up about 7 months. I hate to be skeptical but I find it hard to believe a young guy in his situation from the NYC Metro area was only able to raise a few hundred bucks. I have a feeling Joey along with his friends in the Poker community will be digging into their own pockets.

        Point of reference on the GFM. I know a guy the same age (36) that died last week from my area, born, raised and stayed in Philly. His wife raised over $185k in the 3 days.

          What a pity...
          Besides, there was an article about how gambling affects our health. I can't find the right page, but it was on this site https://healthworldwidetips.com/what-is-gambling/. And there was said that playing poker can really make our health better. If poker was a treatment from cancer, that would be great

            I tell you what. My short term memory had been getting really really bad starting in my late 40's. I started playing poker at about age 50.
            I'll be 55 in Sept and a few months ago I noticed how much better my memory as improved. It's truly an incredible turn around.

            Here is an example from yesterday. My grand daughter was dropped off at 6am so I can take her to camp at 730. She comes in lays on the couch, gets under the blanket and watches TV. I pay her little attention to her until it's time to go. At 730 I take her to camp which is a short 3 minute drive.

            A few hours later my daughter ask me if Pey changed out of her bathing suit. The weather was crappy in the morning. I told her I have no idea what she was wearing. I never notice that crap and really never have. Before I clicked reply to the message I recalled she had a pink T shirt on and she was wearing her new sneakers. My daughter said yeah, her bathing suit was on underneath of her top.

          This is a very sad story. I did watch the pod cast that Joey did with him on YouTube It's sad but true. I'm glad they got him in the main event
