I was saddened to read about this and condolences go out to his friends and family. He really was a fantastic poker player and i always enjoyed watching his demeanour around a poker table

Nice to see that James Woods younger brother still had the looks when it came to playing and drinking throughout the night (but seriously though, he was looking just alike...) Great guy, great stories, must have been pretty cool to know him peronally.

I did not watch Jim Meehan when he was playing at the poker tables.
I do not remember seeing him at the table with other players.
Maybe he was a good person, except as a lawyer i think..., but this does not mean that we can not say Rest In Peace ‘Minneapolis Jim' Meehan.

to say this true I not know who he is, hear first time about this player but this is reality about life, it is not matter who you are and how many money you have and fans too you still die one day. maybe 66 is too young because I like to think about 75 is good number, then time is present later

Gee, honestly I don't think there is an apropriate amount or even good number for the years for going away knowing you did everything you wanted, but sure as hell that after a certain age nothing feels right and the problems comes with said age just keeps on piling up.

I hear about this player for the first time. Probably because he hasn't played in a while.In my opinion 66 years is too short term... That's too bad. R. I. P.
