Ouch! what a sad story... its odd but to think he had all he could ever want then just after a run of poor luck and bad form he's crushed like a fly.... Its really odd / different to here this sort of storey on a poker forum.... odd theres not much any one can say really now is there? poor luck that recked his life . it happens in ever form of enterprisse i feel. Poker isnt impervious to the pain and suffering of every day life... it can grind you down and take every thing it has given so crule...so crule. Be warned the higher you climb the further you have to fall.

Its always sad to read a story like this. A man who decided to bet is future on a sport and then things go wrong. Its like watching a footballer breaking a leg. But at least the footballer only stops earning, and poker pros spent it all.

Do I deserve to say that this just CANT happen. Are there no good people in the world anymore? If someguy will loose his money like this, friends or gilrfriends could help them dont they? Report it to some kind of clinics, make transfers so he wont play for all the money you got. Its sad that something like this CAN happen, and its just badluck that Zupp is paying the price for this system.

lol ... just one of many who have had their life destroyed by poker. If you are stupid enough to loan big amounts of money to your "friends" then you deserve to lose it all ... i would suggest the gun and bank so we would see some action.

"When he thought things couldn't get worse, he got the swine flue. And as soon as he had recovered -- he broke his foot. He got chronic inflammation in his fingers and returning headache as well. After this, his girlfriend, the love of his life, left him. A man who once had everything a human being could ask for had lost it all."
He gets no luck sadly, i hope he will be albe to get back to the poker tables.

Posted by MANUEDO: It's a very sad story; to lose all you won playing games it's a risk you have to consider when begin and happens to choose bad friends too. But health is the most important thing and I really mind for him; then, do you want to add some words about his (ex) girlfriend behaviour ?
