yea during the WSOP last year there was a lot of speculation that he was being forced to gamble for Asian Mafia types in order to repay some loses. They forced him to go a little to deep into his pockets at the table and they finally beat him and he couldnt cover.
The crappy thing is they made him gamble at Bacarat and stuff and he lost a bunch and they added it to what he owed them for poker. It was said they may kill him.
This is all speculation and there is not much anywhere to confirm or deny it. His last tweet allegedly was May 2015. Not sure if any of it was true but if it was what a strange story.
Update - my contacts in L.A. say he is now in Macau playing cash games, and does not know if above was true, but thinks it was just rumors.
