Yesterday, a hearing was held in the case of Robert Sirfoss, an American lawyer accused of embezzling $ 435,000.
During the testimony, Robert's wife said that recently her husband literally took over the idea of ​​becoming a professional poker player. His game was so tight that he played for days on end either online or skated to the nearest casino.
However, Robert could not boast of serious results. Over the past 10 years, the Hendon Mob website has only a modest stats of his performances in 8 tournaments, which only has $ 22,000 in prize money. And in the next 8-10 years she, unfortunately, Robert, does not change.

well I guess its not that bad of an idea- not sure about the skating to the casino part, but becoming a poker pro is a lot more realistic business plan that trying to become a professional casino player, so all that happened not according to plan was the simple fact that dude sucked at poker.

he should have realized way sooner that he is not fit for playing poker professionally.
Ten years is a very long period not showing good results, considering the amount invested in.
If he was a good lawyer, he could have made way more than what he spent, chasing a dream.

This men is in trouble with gambling addiction. His wife, when asked:"Did you ever stop and wonder where all of the money was coming from for all of his debts and all of the things he was buying?" she replied, "I just trusted my husband”. WOW. How is possible for a wife not to check or not know how much money her husband earns with his job. She only defends, she knew he had problems. Now he makes prison because he has the addiction to the games in him.

the saddest thing in this story is that a person had the opportunity to take money ... and a long time he could hide this fact from his employer .... of course he thought that in the end he would win and put money back .... and no one will know anything .... but he did not succeed ... an instructive story

Do you know many people going to such lengths, feeding their addiction
and then putting the money back?
Once they put their hands to it, it is just money gone, or stolen.
They dont care about returning it at all.

22k in prize money is still better then most peoples bragging rights. Though if you compared to that with his 435k 'invest' then yeah I can see why this guy has very little future as a pro.

Lol his game was to tight to be a professional poker player... it seems that his education in poker was to bad to be a semi-pro and he don´t understand the poker abd with odds and outs Big Smile By the way and the plan to be a professional Casino player must be a joke.

I do not know what kind of lawyer and how good this man was with his job but it is very difficult to become a professional player. He had to study long before he started playing real money. He chose a very bad method, has lost money and is now going to go in prison. He played this card badly. Big Smile
