I guess he didnt do well by playing poker, or found his other "job" more fascinating.
What is a bit funny also by reading this article is what it says at the end,
for the other poker player.
Retired bank robber Smile Is that actual a thing? He had a health insurance also? Smile

Well with 150k, he could have invest that amount in a good profitable business. I believe he lost money in gambling and did not have that much left to be involve in those illegal activities. What a shame!

This Thomas Dougher, will definitely receive a greater prison sentence because it happens with many peoples who rob casinos. Interesting is the fact that this offender is a bank robber. With so many surveillance systems there are still thieves who have the courage to do that. He caught the microbe from the movies.

It seems like this guy is a career criminal and it is no surprise that he carried on doing it after his big win. Some people will never change their ways and he seems like one of those

Well, if he has invested all of his winning s back in 2015 into buying bitcoins,
now he would have a small fortune.
Buying with 500 then and selling when it reached the 20k mark, thats 6 millions USD.
Not bad for two years doing absolutely nothing.

well this is a nice occupation to have- a serial bank robber. wow this would look perfect on a cv, especially if you're running for president or sth like that... probably even better than a porn actor, naah porn actor is better by at least a few inches...

It's strange that people are still rob banks with all those cameras and security measures. I would like to read some details of these his robberies. Also it's strange that he, being a successful poker player, broke the law. Maybe he had huge debts or something like that.

they rob these casinos because they are desperate. They want money and are no longer in a position to think about the prison sentence. In the case of casinos the penalty is higher than a market or another store. Some have debts others are drugged and they rob. A bad decision for them
