A gambler by the age of 10, Ungar won millions playing card games. Considered to be one of the very best professional poker and gin rummy players of all time. The movie "High Roller: The Stu Ungar Story" was loosely based on his colorful life. He won numerous professional poker and gin rummy tournaments, including the , 19World Series of Poker. Ungar was found dead in a Las Vegas motel room.
However, in the game of single-deck blackjack, playing strategy i. Ungar's mother had died in It was also around this time that Ungar began using cocaine.
He noted in his autobiography that at first he used it on the advice of fellow poker players because of the drug's ability to keep someone up and energized for a long period of time, something that would come in handy during marathon poker sessions.
However, recreational use soon led to addiction. Ungar and Madeline were married in and had a daughter, Stefanie, that same year.
Ungar also legally adopted Madeline's son from her first marriage, Richie, who adored Ungar and took his surname. Ungar and Madeline divorced in Ungar's drug problem escalated to such a point that during the WSOP Main Event in , Ungar was found on the third day of the tournament unconscious on the floor of his hotel room from a drug overdose.
His addiction took such a physical toll that in an ESPN piece, many of Ungar's friends and fellow competitors said that they thought that he would not live to see his fortieth birthday.
In the same piece, one friend said that the only thing that kept him alive was his determination to see his daughter grow up. Most of Ungar's winnings at the poker table he lost quickly betting on sports or horses, always looking for "action".
Many of Ungar's friends, including Mike Sexton , began to encourage him to enter drug rehab and offered to pay for Ungar to receive treatment at any facility in the world.
Ungar refused, citing several people he knew who had been to rehab previously who told him that drugs were easier to obtain in rehab than on the street.
In , Ungar was deeply in debt and clearly showed physical damage from his years of addiction. Ungar was exhausted on the tournament's first day as he had been up for over 24 hours straight trying to raise or borrow enough money to play in the event.
At one point midway through the first day of play, Ungar began to fall asleep at his table and told Mike Sexton who was also playing he didn't think he could make it.
After encouragement from Sexton and a tongue lashing from Baxter, Ungar settled in and made it through the day. During the tournament, Ungar kept a picture of his daughter Stefanie in his wallet, and he regularly called her with updates on his progress.
Following an up-and-down first day, Ungar showed up for each subsequent day well rested and mentally sharp. He would go on to amass a large chip lead and carry the lead into the final table.
Ungar was so highly regarded at this point that local bookies made him the favorite to win the tournament over the entire field, an extreme rarity.
Ungar went on to win the Main Event, joining Johnny Moss as the only three-time winners. After his victory, which was taped for broadcast by ESPN, Ungar was interviewed by Gabe Kaplan , and he showed the picture of his daughter to the camera and dedicated his win to her.
Ungar was dubbed "The Comeback Kid" by the Las Vegas media because of the span sixteen years between his main event wins as well as his past drug abuse.
During the WSOP, Ungar wore a pair of round, cobalt blue—tinted sunglasses to, according to co-biographer Peter Alson, "hide the fact that his nostrils had collapsed from cocaine abuse.
Ungar spent all of his WSOP prize money over the course of the next few months, mainly on drugs and sports betting. He attempted to give up drugs several times at the behest of Stefanie but stayed clean for only weeks at a time before relapsing.
However, ten minutes before play started, Ungar told Baxter he was tired and did not feel like playing. Ungar later said the real reason he chose not to play in the event was due to his drug abuse in the weeks prior to the tournament.
He noted that he felt showing up in his current condition would be more embarrassing than not showing up at all. He lived in and out of various Las Vegas hotels, rarely leaving his room.
Ungar was also spotted walking around various Las Vegas poker rooms begging for money. He often said the money was to get him back on the poker tables, but would instead use it to purchase crack , which he now had to use instead of cocaine because his nasal membranes were so damaged he could no longer snort the drug, while crack could be smoked through a pipe.
Not long after, many pros, some Ungar's former friends, refused to stake him or give him any money until he cleaned himself up.
Ungar was also arrested for possession of crack cocaine during this time. In October , Bob Stupak made an arrangement to stake Ungar to several tournaments over a period of time.
On November 20, , Ungar checked into room No. On November 22, he was found in the room dead, lying on the floor, fully clothed and with the television off.
An autopsy showed traces of drugs in Ungar's system, but not enough to have directly caused his death. The medical examiner concluded that his death was the result of a heart condition brought on by years of drug abuse.
Stupak took up a collection at Ungar's funeral to raise funds to pay for the services. Ungar was noted for his ultra-aggressive playing style and well-timed bluffs.
