that pretty much sums it up.
bracelets....no bracelets....wins no wins....fame or no fame...it all comes down to the mighty dollar.
ROI is really all that matters.....money spent/money won
plenty of famous players who have won millions are now deep in hock...in fact from what I hear its a BIG percentage of a lot of the 'pros' we see on TV...estimates on 2+2 claim that as many as 75% of the 'name' tourney pros are staked. The illusion is not real
It all comes down to profit. I think a lot of the very successful players are happy to play in the shadows with no fan fare and care not about recognition or fame.
