It's sad that a proud man like him will probably forever be remembered for raping children, which is something he never even admitted to having done on ANY of the occasions that it allegedly happened. How can we really know for certain what really went down? Were we there? Have any of us honestly never known what it was like to have a lie told about us by a child? RIP, Mr. Slim. Whatever you may done wrong in your life, you sure looked hilarious in you old time-e southern people outfit.

I mean, one or three acts of incestuous child rape can just completely cast an opaque shadow over his career as a confidence man and card cheat. He should remember him for the crimes we (as poker players) have been conditioned to think are funny, not for the crimes that we find sick.

I love the game of poker for the competition, the psychology, the never-ending quest to improve, the advanced and sometimes minute complexities not everyone sees when they play, and the enjoyment of succeeding after giving all your energy to reach a goal that may at first seem unattainable but that you find a way to make it possible.
