I'm not happy about the damage he's done to the game, but other than that I have nothing personal against him.

Do we know for SURE that he's missing a tooth?

I think it was some black paper thing.

Is this easy to confirm? zg
Can anyone verify this, just for posterity? zg

I could verify it, but who would verify me? This is the internet after all.

May not be using his talents creating a tangible impact on society, but if this is what he truly enjoys, kudos to him. His ideas, along with other AP innovators have certainly inspired me with thinking outside the box, and not necessarily just advantage plays at the tables. Ie., hopefully just a matter of time before I take a calculated small risk, exit corporate and start working for myself instead of making profits for others.

There's some easily-accessible B-roll footage from a television program that would explain the missing tooth—I have an acquaintance with a similar background that would frequently remove his false set of front teeth prior to getting into a fight!

If it's the TV program I think it is, wasn't he in disguise? If so, the missing tooth may be part of it.

I think a lot of people overlook this aspect of AP. I also think that a lot of people seem to confuse career choice and contribution to society. Sure, a career can impact society positively or negatively, but it doesn't necessarily have to speak for an individual's non-work-related contributions. I don't consider AP to be my "valuable" contribution to society, although it comprises a very significant portion of my income and time spent working. I do other things outside of playing cards.
