Posted on 13 January 2010 by "T".

A few days ago, Jonas "Nebuchad" Danielsson, wrote in his blog that he has lost his interest in poker and also the edge when he's playing. These are 2 of the main reasons why he has taken the decision to end his poker career and do something else instead.

"If I take good care of the money I have earned from playing poker, then I probably dont have to work for the rest of my life"; "Nebuchad" writes in his blog.

For many (including myself) it wasn't a big surprise that "Nebuchad" would stop playing poker. I mean, he hasn't played more than a few shorter sessions in the past 2 years. Even his blog has been dead during this time, and when he finally writes something - it's usually about something else than poker.

About "Nebuchad"
Jonas "Nebuchad" Danielsson, 25, lives in Stockholm, Sweden. He started playing poker many years ago and turned PRO back in 2005. "Nebuchad" has won millions of dollars playing No Limit Holdem against some of the world's greatest poker players. He was even involved in the world's third largest pot online against Patrik Antonius a few years ago. This was before games at $500/$1000 started. In 2008, he was voted 'player of the year' at the Scandinavian poker awards.
