Now if you played a game, won close to 12 million dollars and they wouldn't give you your winnings you'd probably still go crazy right, albeit a bad kind of crazy I'm sure.

He also has a reputation as a high roller away from his profession. He recently accepted an undisclosed settlement of a $900,000 debt reportedly owed him by fellow pro Ram Vaswani on a golf bet.
