In addition to players like Tom "durrrr" Dwan and Phil "OMGClayAiken" Galfond, the Dang brothers (Hac "trex313" Dang and Di "Urindanger" Dang) can't play anymore the big cash games on Full Tilt Poker and PokerStars after the "Black Friday".
In a recent interview with Pokernews.com Di Dang tells, that he is not too worried though, and also adds that he wanted to retire from poker eventually anyway:
"I think we're okay. We've saved up our money, but a lot of our friends haven't. They're struggling. I actually wanted to retire from poker eventually, so the news didn't hurt me as much as it hurt my friends.
Poker is stressful. I could lose or win a million dollars or more every month. Sometimes I felt on top of the world, and then sometimes I felt on the bottom of the world. It's not healthy. Poker was always a means to an end for us. It was never what we wanted to do forever.
We were planning to use the money to do something bigger and better."
The article also reveals that Dang is currently in the process of opening a Cajun-style crawfish restaurant in Virginia.
