Man you guys have got me into a rabbit hole of reading Ungar stories and watching clips. Simultaneously a world class gin rummy, backgammon, poker and blackjack player when the drugs weren’t in charge. OD’d in his hotel room on third day of 1990 WSOP but still made the final table posting blinds without being there due to the lead he had. Crazy stories, drug addiction can be brutal.

Definitely read his biography. If I remember correctly he was 15 and beating world class Gin players.
