It gets to a point in some people's life in which the thrill of being radical can pass by enjoying handling the reality of being sit at a table with eight other guys playing cards doing the best to beat them. This is the reality of many experienced (i.e. old) persons in my country, who love to pass their days in some public gardens playing cards, just for fun or even with some money involved as incentive. Having the chance to play big must be awesome at this age. And having the chance to guarantee a better future for their grandsons must be even better.
Don't know how many over 65 pros or semi-pros are earning their living by playing poker currently in the world but apparently based on this final table almost every one of them lives in the United States. Funny, isn't it?
