If it wasn't poker/gambling, it would be something else.

It's a sad story. I hope he can sort out his issues.

However, if you take away the "lost $60k and has 3 kids", it pretty much sums up the story of most aspiring pros these days. Certainly most aspiring online pros anyway. Can't speak for live.

8% of people are genetically predisposed to be addicted to gambling, but not all those people gamble. This is why casinos exist.

Conversely x% of people are genetically predisposed to be alcoholics.

Etc, genes are a mother****er

yeah, although its worth mentioning that the average young(ish) person is spending a lot more time living with parents anyway than in the past, regardless of what they do for a living/what career they are pursuing or aiming to pursue.

Maybe he should have moved up limits, where they would have respected his raises?

mmmasherdog was talking about on stream how he spent 2019 in his mom's basement just grinding all the time. Won $1.2mm on stars....jnandez too talks about how it's better to grind in dark without outside stimulation like an isolated office (there was a study on this that showed sunlight while working makes you think less rationally).

Think if you are trying to come up online now though it's really hard and the difference is mmmasherdog was streaming from Malta heh.

Sorry, but your conclusion about "why casinos exist" is complete and utter Horse Sh**.

Strip casinos gross less than 1/2 of their revenue from gambling for starters. Do you have some source that examines what % of Casino customers gamble for entertainment, not compulsively ? Or, did you just pull that conclusion out of some orifice somewhere ?

Do not worry guys, Dr. Phil is going to fix it. He is amazing and doesn't care about the views at all.

studies have shown that 50% of the gambling industry's revenue comes from a small % of problem gamblers
