I heard that, in addition to the Devilfish Cup, Dusk Till Dawn will honor the pro by renaming his favorite drink, a double vodka Red Bull, to “The Devilfish.” Well, I prefer Jägermeister Red Bull, the Jäger Bomb!

So....we will all be looking forward to the promotions at PartyPoker to get in on the action in this wonderful testimony to a great player. It will be interesting to see what the turnout is and of course, that fact that a proportion of the buy ins going to charity is always a really positive thing behind such events.
What did he leave behind to his family if the promoters have to pay percentage into a trust fund of his daughter's? I get the cancer research thing - wait there is no cancer research, that foundation just about hospice. Well... Way to milk his fame for a little more time I guess. But somebody here eventually gonna say I am just a cold-hearted cinical SOB.
