Posted on 17 July 2014 by "T".

After carrying out an autopsy, Slovenian authorities reported on Wednesday that poker player Johannes Strassmann fell into the Ljubjanica river in Ljubljana, Slovenia, while under the influence of hallucinogenic drugs.

The Slovenian police did not want to reveal what the drugs were but Germany's Bild reporter Alessandro Alviani, who began working on the story and put together important pieces of information since the tragedy, revealed some details from Strassmann's last night in the Slovenian capital.

An eyewitness told Alviani that Strassmann "was out with three Slovenians. One of them was a good friend of his, while he barely knew the other two". The eyewitness added that one of the men was a "known drug dealer."

According to the story reported by Bild, "the group had been eating magic mushrooms, and around 10 p.m. Johannes suddenly left the table of the pubs they were all in, and ran away leaving his mobile phone behind."

Aww damn knowing the cause of death will surely brings a little re comfort to his family but dying on the drugs is always a bad thing but at least they know the truth and get get closure from that. Anyway at last we know what happened and we can see drugs are bad for the health and for the users out there, don't abuse it Sad. Cheers anyway have a nice day hope no much sad news for a while. Peace out mobsters!

It is possible that he was druged but the problem is if those drugs were ingested voluntarily or involuntarily...

Something tells me that there is a lot more to this story than the police is telling right now. I hope thta we'll find the truth someday...

This really is a sad story and a tragic ending to a young guy who had the chance to do good things at the poker table.
However the situation is reported it is unlikely we'll ever know true events of that night,hopefully it was just a tragic accident and nothing sinister.

This story gets more and more tragic. This guy had his whole life in front of him and to go and have a night out and never come home is just a tragedy. Rest in Peace Johannes

He might have taken the mushrooms, but I am pretty sure it was the drowning that killed him. A guy died from a lightning strike this year after smoking marijuana, now there's a deadly drug!

It's a bit strange for something like this to happen to someone having a normal life. We don't know if he had personal problems or big troubles recently, and that could help explaining a lot. Others may think he may have been pulled to the river, just because of the "last seen" with two strange guys, one of them a frug dealer, and having the stomach full of it. Difficult to take a conclusion out of this story. But sad, in conclusion,

Oh man. He was such a nice guy. I didn't know him, but that's how i feel after watching numerous poker episodes where he's in. And reading all the nice tweets the poker community wrote about him after he passed. R.I.P.
