Autism to some degree with narcissistic tendencies. Poor education and parental guidance over many years. Low intelligence and deficient lifestructure. You should seek the help of a professional before it's too late.

Too late for what? To be cured? Any pro would know talking therapy is never going to cure the patient. I have had some transpersonal LSD sessions with Stanislav Grof.

Re: Tom Dwan - the missing man

Nothing to do with triads. Rumoured to have won a bunch last year in the 1province/2province game against the ruling oligarchs. Now secretly owns ~2/3 of China. Chinese govt were furious; hence the recent crackdown on Macau. Ongoing currency wars with China can be interpreted as US govt challenging Dwan to HU. You need to understand the geopolitical context.

Re: Tom Dwan - the missing man

threads and comments like this really make me laugh.
Wan Kuok-koi? are you kidding me? this guy was jailed in 1998, 1 year before macau was transferred back to china. triad was fading in HK&macau ,I think you could easily figure out the reason. the nosebleed game in macau isn't underground, you actually could watch them play in a distance if you were there, the ups&downs in the table is no secret, some chinese poker player posted it on weibo sometimes.

BTW,according to winfred yu who runs the poker king club,Dwan has a strong backer(malaysia billionaire businessman) and doing very well in the big game.

Not to mention the infamous wet willy, or nipple cripple. Sometimes they even just repeat everything you say immediately after you say it, or try to get you in to a long lasting 'I know you are, but what am I' routines til it breaks you. They are brutal, don't underestimate them.

Re: Tom Dwan - the missing man

Has the thought ever crossed anyone's mind that when you're a young dude with millions of dollars and no obligations it's pretty easy to just **** off for a few years and only be at big events with the media when you feel like it?
