Somebody hated it and somebody loved the game of poker in the military for its winning and losing chances. But sailor loved the game so much and came out of the service and established him as the full time poker player. As San Angelo was a small town and having less poker players he then moved himself for the big shot poker game and got intimated with the other famous poker player Doyle Brunson. Later on they became the business partners and split their gambling income between them and participated in various poker games in the country.
