From the sale of his restaraunts and clubs he made between 5-10 Million (I would guess on the higher side of this).
So if he really is busto hes lost atleast 5 mill playing poker, which means I think its time for JRB to call it quits.
And hes not some young guy who has tons of time to learn, hes already 42. If he wants any shot at a normal life then he should probably call it quits pretty soon. I don't know the mentality of most pro poker players, but I highly doubt the majority believe that they are gonna play to support a family some day.
The time to call it quits isn't after you already went busto and lost the $5 million, that's like selling a stock that went from $100 to 1 cent. At that point, you might as well just hold on to the penny stock on the miracle chance that it rises from the dead. It's too late to cut your losses when you already lost 100%.
