It's at the beginning of this video.

Enjoyed the story about Steve Sanders losing a good poker hand and then having to rush to the hospital later to discover he had an Aneurysm that was dangerously preparing to burst. I myself had a scheduled surgery for an 5cc aneurysm that I had lived with for several months trying to get something done. Finally did have surgery a year and a half ago. Lucky to be alive (they say), but my surgery went astray and they ended up having to make an uplanned repair procedure that now has limited my hips, legs, feet activities and a continuous pain that they can not repair. Just wanted to say thanks to Poker (now that I'm limited somewhat to activities) for Steve that he has recovered. With all the free time I now have is why I went to Full Tilt Poker
and it has been a blessing for me. Makes the day(s) go easier and lots of fun. Thanks for your good article. I did watch the video and enjoyed it very much.
