For every elderly person comes the time to give up the job. This Bobby Baldwin has 68 years old. He has a very interesting soubriquet “The Owl” but also has 4 bracelets. It does not matter now that he has been dismissed or is his age. He must accept the situation if he has not been agreed there.

Who know what has happened, that lead to this "decision" but all we can say is, that he has lived the the gambling world inside and out. Informative article, didnt know that the well known poker room was named after him. He is not that young anymore well paid, so retirement wont hurt him
Posted by Calmplay: I wish we could have players of those calibre again but the modern poker game has ruined everything...
Ruined in what way? The current player crop are more ruthless and calculated than those.good old boys, so if anything they are more successfull against a wider and smarter opponents pool. If anything its harder making money out of it than thirty-forty years ago.

Of course it is very hard to understand real reason why bobby baldwin so high post for this company, but he is not young guy now so maybe it is something to his health. Maybe after some time we kniw real reason and then we can talk about it
68 years old is of course a solid age .... apparently At this age, Man decided to take a break from poker .... Especially since he has significant achievements in this game .... Four bracelets is very cool ... a legend man ... .and of course the game is now a little different than 10-20 years ago .... new times new game speeds

This Bobby Baldwin is a relative with the Baldwin brothers? I know one of them was arrested for a quarrel, because of the parking spaces. Is an actor who quickly loses his temper, but i do not know why he does this thing. Alec Baldwin has an age and should be a mature man, but unfortunately he is immature.
