Stu Ungar is thought to be by many to the very best NL Texas holdem Poker gambler ever.

The three time World Poker Champion was born in New York in 1953 and started playing poker prior to reaching his teens.

The young gambler began wagering gin and at the age of ten had won his very first gin tournament, while on holiday with his mother and father. By the age of 14 the little poker genius had become a pro and dropped out of school.

In 1954 Stu Ungar entered the record books by succeeding $10,000 in a gin tournament without losing a single hand, a record which still stands in New York these days.

The fast talking superstar has been compared, in poker terms, to sporting superstars such as Joe Namath and Tiger Woods. Stu had a actual talent for playing poker except regardless of his achievements in Texas holdem poker, he favored betting gin.

Stu once said that there may a number of day be a greater No Limit Hold em gambler than him but he could not see how anyone could ever be a far better gin player.

In ‘80 Stu Ungar was put on the global map as one of the greatest Hold em Poker players in the world when he was crowned World Poker Champion for the very first time. Extraordinarily it was the 1st time he had played in the tournament.

The following year he dismissed any suggestions that it had been luck, by successfully protecting his crown. And in 1997 Stu set the record by succeeding his third World poker championship.

Except this poker legend also battled with substance abuse and a year after succeeding his third title Stu Ungar past away in his hotel room. According to doctors, he had died from a heart attack which was caused by his lifestyle.

Stu had started out with nothing but his ability and expertise for the casino game which made this poker great a millionaire quite a few times over.
