Some American professionals from the most diverse areas really knew how to relax and enjoy life and distress from their regular daily job. Playing real poker was a great option. Now we have online, it's not the same, although nice in the same. I guess he must have taken almost all he wanted from this life. And as things are today, he can dream with a new day tomorrow.

Big fan of The Simpsons here,.... been watching pretty much right from the start back in the early '90s.

I had no clue that buddy was a fairly established and accomplished poker player.

It would be interesting to see an episode about poker complete with the cast of poker clowns like Phil Hellmuth, Tony G, Phil Laak, Esfandiari, Negraneau,.....maybe that Tilly chick too because she's a nut, etc....

They could all play in a tourney at Moe's Bar....or Homer's garage....

I've never watched one episode of the Simpson's nor any other animated prime time show. Just don't watch much tube at all unless it's documentaries or maybe a movie once in great while.

Still, wish him the best and hopefully he'll pull through to keep up his entertainment for a lot of folks.

Well I never like the Simpson's but was a fan of Cheer's.
Still I wish him all the best with his recovery.
Lets hope he gets to play another WSOP soon and makes the money.
Be cool amigos and best of luck to us all.

I'm sorry to hear about Sam, more than he is a poker player and the creator of the Simpsons he is also a great guy.

Not sure if you know but over the years he donated millions and millions of dollars to different child help and wildlife foundations!
