He was one of the best poker players but not the best as some people say. He was good in the 80s or 90s but since online poker has gained momentum, many players have appeared and if Stu Ungar lived it would have been much more difficult for him to achieve such performance. Anyway he had a fantastic talent with holdem, gin and blackjack.

I have to say never heard of him before.
Read the story and he did some big accomplishments.
And of course after all these card games, it wasnt that hard to become
"compulsive gambler"
He also started playing cards too young Smile

This guy was truly a fascinating character and his status as the best No Limit Hold 'Em player ever is well deserved. I would have loved to have seen him play in the modern era and i think he would have still been at the very top

Stu Ungar is one of my all-time favorite poker players. He somewhat reminds me of my degenerate cousin. I wish I could meet Stu Ungar in person, but that is no longer possible. He died too young, way too young.

a legend of poker with an unconditional talent and perfect pity that besides this one of playing poker or gin he also with the same destresa for the game went to the drugs and alcohol where he saw his chances of being very successful plus a remarkable even with all these problems

I must admit, I've never heard about it. I read those article, and it was sad, that he lost his life to drugs, like many more famous person. I can't understand, why people who gain famous, cash, etc, decide to lose their life with drugs... So many notable people on the world are gone due to their drug-addict.

Grandfather of the super aggro style of playing. Worked very well for him in tournament play in the rather small fields of his time. In cash games the nits had more time waiting for monster hands, and trapping him
