Did you watch the WSOP Main Event that was on TV last Tuesday? They showed a guy who had no arms playing poker. He was born that way and uses the toes of one foot to peek at his hole cards and to put chips in the pot.
The guy's name is Mike Wilson and he's from the Vancouver BC area. Wilson is also a bridge player! He is a Gold Life Master and closing in on Diamond Life Master status (which means he has nearly 5000 masterpoints).
Here is a comment Wilson made about being disabled: "As a defense mechanism, some players will make bad jokes. Some will be overly friendly, while others will either ignore me or assume I’m an idiot. They’re common reactions to people who are disabled," he said.
Despite his handicap, he graduated from college with a degree in mathematics, and is now a retired stock broker. You can read more about this interesting man in a story that the ACBL published in the Daily Bulletin at the 2005 Pittsburgh NABC by clicking here.
