What a tragic story and my heartfelt condolences go out to his friends and family at this sad time. It looks like he really loved playing poker and was well respected in the poker community

Always sad reading about things like that with sudden death.
And of course you can say he was young. Only 49 years of age.
But we dont know anything about his health.
He was doing well with overall winnings from poker also.

Unfortunately there are many people who do not know that they have different health problems and do not periodically check the hospital to find out their health. They think: i'm ok with my health and they get to die with 20-30 years earlier than normal. It is very bad. Sad

Unfortunate event to be honest, but at least he died doing what he loved the most I think. Playing cards, making money, gambling etc. The sad fact that his chips probably got redistibuted after among all the other player at his table.

It is unfortunate what happened, it is a natural thing to happen to any person, unfortunately it happened in the middle of a poker tournament that rests in peace and keeps hitting the pieces from the sky
