Good point in a young man which he apparently was. In the aging it is BPH that is the prime suspect, but that isn't scarring it's just overgrowth obstruction.

OG poster on here DGAF has been saying it for over decade but ok.

i would say people coming from money using that as a crutch to keep failing until they make it is a modern phenomena. Dorks actually tell their parents they are playing poker "and crushing" now. When i started professional poker wasn't a thing, televised poker pros weren't a thing, online poker grinders from around the world weren't a thing, middle class (or upper) parents letting their kids "try poker as a career for a while" was like parents letting their kids try "robbing banks as a career for a while" it literally didn't exist. everyone who tried to make a living playing poker pre 2004 was willing to be seen as a semi criminal misfit and NEVER told their parents under any circumstances unless they wanted all help/money cut off and maybe an intervention. the one thing all OG pros have in common is this: we all ran like god at the beginning. its the only way anyone had a chance because there was ZERO family help for any of us and you couldn't "grind your way up" because the rake at the low levels of live poker is usury. you had to have no "bankroll management", run like god, play as big as possible, and figure it out as you went. We all built the plane while it was in the air.

The running like god thing is true for most people who needed to turn pro who started out playing in any era, but the games would’ve been so insane soft pre 2004 did you really need to run like god? if you knew what you were doing? I suppose your sentence about not grinding your way up as it was all in or nothing might relate to having to run like god but I’m sure it was piss easy to win in any event, variance couldn’t have been like it was today except if your whole roll was in the table (was that a thing?)
