It is not the first time that we have talked about this New York poker player in Kelbet , and in terms of poker terms, Stu Ungar is a clear reference .
Since childhood, “The child” pointed ways. With only 15 years he won $ 10,000 in a great tournament held in New York.
Many years would pass until the whopping $ 100,000 was pocketed – in a 10 against 1 game – to millionaire Bob Stupak.
With three wins at the WSOP, Stu Ungar was always a great player, so much that he turned against him. It was impossible for him to win, and not because he had worsened his way of playing, but because in most cases no one wanted to face him. The fear spread in such a way that some casinos came to ban entry for life.
The bad life that the player led caused him to die in November 1988 in Las Vegas.
American from the state of Texas is considered, along with Amarillo Slim, one of the parents of modern poker . When poker was still banned and was considered a game of thugs, Brunson and Slim formed a society to travel and be able to play together in different places.
With countless prizes – and money – behind him, the American has always led to chivalry and good behavior in this world of cards.
Always with his hat and a smile on his face, we hope he still gives us a lot to talk about.
