What a story! I can totally understand why he choked, being homeless puts you in the exact opposite mindset of a poker player; you don’t want to risk anything because you’re teetering on the knife’s edge. Still, was a fascinating read, and what an experience for Jared. Thanks for writing up, OP! He wasn’t homeless by the time he played Vintage Legends Born In November 2012 T-Shirt The Big Game, by that point he was doing alright – so much so he donated $1k to charity from one of his videos. But still, that mindset would be hard to get out of fully. The blow-by-blow style really built the tension. I found myself really caring and feeling the community excitement of something that happened ten years ago. Thank you for the detailed and dramatic story, including the wind-down and ‘where are they now’. That was very satisfying.

Damn, this felt like a movie. Down on his luck underdog works his way up and has a chance to play with the pros. The ending felt even more like a movie. He chokes in the climax, but when you look back you realize that he’s in a much better spot than he was originally. Fantastic writeup OP. This is certainly Vintage Legends Born In November 2012 T-Shirt post I’ve ever seen on this sub, and one of the best on Reddit in general. You did a terrific job OP, thanks for putting in the effort. I wish Jared won in the end but nonetheless I’m happy that he ended up in a much better place than he started. I wish him all the best! I don’t really know how to play poker, so I didn’t managed to follow properly, but it is a really nice story! But something about the beginning rubs me the wrong way…

Not because of OP, the description was perfect, but just the mental state of Jared leaves me baffeled. How could a person be left so much alone? I mean, there wasn’t an organization that could help him, at the very least for food/chatting/a place to sleep, etc? I mean, it worked out fine, but to me it is really strange that the only way he could live was accepting stranger’s bets on a poker forum. I mean, if someone dared to ask a bit more of him, like killing a pigeon or something, would have he done it? Vintage Legends Born In November 2012 T-Shirt Was there not a social net, something that could have helped him if it was not for poker? Being homeless in the US (especially depending on where you are) can leave you without a net. Lots of orgs do great work to help, but they can’t always match the sheer amount of need.
