Why do lucky people always make beautiful things look obnoxious?
I SIMPLY HATE THAT!
He done exactly what he needed to. He needed to take a break and live his life. Are you personally offended that he basically admitted he couldn't handle the instant fame and fortune the WSOP win brought him? does he owe anyone, or the poker community, anything? Absolutely not.
Some pro poker players hate the media attention and unwanted fame; they'd rather just play poker,like Phil Ivey. Is he a douche? Nah, thought not.
Outside of poker, take singers for example. How many artists sing about wishing they had it like before, when their career was just about the music, not the money? Sports players saying they would rather just play the game rather than worry about interviews, paparazzi and money.
Why do jealous people make good, successful, but sometimes vulnerable, people out to be the opposite of what they are? Because they are the real douche's.
