Sad history. Money can make people crazy but anything could ever justify a crime like this one. What will he tell his son ?

tragic , well at least he is going to jail as every murderer. but things like this happens everyday so of course a pokerplayer would end up murdering someone.

I'm pretty sure this is the sort of thing that's generally regarded as tragic.. I would imagine if you were this guys sibling and otherwise related to the family, you'd be thinking 'this is pretty tragic'.

what a sad and shameful thing to do for a son. if hes guilty he must be given severe punishment cause he deserves every bit of it. another proof anything can change in life, doesnt take much time.

fucking crazy act, but even worser is in anyway the death penalty .

I suggest, any judge and governor who is responsible for the execution of the death penalty on a human person , and afterwards the person was found not guilty, are murders as well and have to be subject also to the death penalty, that would be very fair, or?
