Re: What happened to Alex Jacob?

Saw him in the last episode of the WSOP main event actually when he busted out. He looks skinnier and more pale than I remember, so I'm guessing yeah he still plays poker.

While it's true, it's kinda harsh. Jacobs is the only MTT pro I can clearly remembering constantly admitting that he's running hot. The others that you refer to have always been delusional.
