It’s always sad to hear about a loss like this, but some things just don’t have na explanation. He leaves a great history. Only 28 yers old and he had time to cash in 12 times at the WSOP and even one bracelet, he was going very well in his career. By the way, this picture in black and white says everything. His face shows he was young, the Money shows he was a winner, and the black and white shows he passed away. Whoever did this photojournalistic work has talent.

Sad for such a young man to lose his life at just 28. May our prayers be with him, his family and friends. I'm sure at this age and having such a winning track record he had just began his journey into the depths of the poker world. Watched the kid play a few times and seem to be an aggressive confident individual who didn't get the full package. RIP
