I just want to point out Rocco is still around policing the tables, unlike most of the other players mentioned.

Go into any casino in America w/ hi limit games every 5 years and 99% of the "pro" lineup will have changed. The old super tight/semi agg guys who "don't know how to play poker" are the only ones who last. Lol.

Lol @ Boris. I see him playing $1/2 nowadays, and I think he's getting staked for it.

ya, they just progress back to slight winners.

no rich person can survive in a legit (uncapped 5-10nl++) game as a loser. they all go broke. at BJ or Baccarat your a slight loser and, if they decide to live at the casino, they all go broke. If you see someone around, day after day, for years, they win. it might be less than minimum wage, but they win.

Spoiler:



Spoiler:


in the com 10-20+ there is exactly one (1) rich loser who still shows up multiple times a week from 5 years ago. there was two (2) a month ago but the other got into a massive argument at the cage when his credit was cut. The rest are once a month (at best). almost all have disappeared.

that doesnt mean hes not a winner. in fact it almost assuredly means he is a small winner. (sans drinking)
