Unfortunately, death does not differentiate between young or old, sick or strong. Our condolences to his family

You never know when the end of your journey will come. Rasmussen was only 39 years old. He could have achieved more as a player, given his victories in the tournaments mentioned in the article. The priceless respect of the poker community is always with him.

My condolences to the family, loved ones and friends.

Its too bad that this has happened at such an early age.
We all know we have to go one day, but you just never expect it at such an age or even younger.

That's why we have to at least try to live a good and decent life, because one day we will have to account for our actions.
My sympathies to all.
