The Bryce seems like a very smart man.

I'm sure he's a great player etc. but something is off here. If he's made 3 million over last 3 years, and makes 80k/mo, there's no way he walks away.

Walking away from 1 million in income this year when you're net worth is 3 million is something no one does. Probably he's on downswing, sensing games getting much tougher, doubts his ability to make a million this year. Again, despite his great blog entry and well articulated point of view, i dont buy it.

Not only that, he is preternaturally calm and debonair, he will succeed at whatever he does.

To be honest, if his blog posts mirror his own intellectual ability even by a fraction, he should pursue something else besides the mongoloid enterprise that is professional poker. Extraordinarily well-spoken and intelligent.

apologies, but what does "mongoloid" mean in that context?

Very un-pc way of saying retarded. Its refering to Down's Syndrome, not people from mongolia.

Though I don't know Bryce in any way, his blog post did seem quite genuine. In finding what to do next, I'm wondering if he has any plans besides a course at the local university. He's right in that he's gonna have a lot more time on his hands, but even without poker there's still the temptation to do nothing but [censored] around on the computer all day.

Any thoughts of doing some traveling Bryce? Not just a two weeks here two weeks there type thing, but traveling around spending however much time you want wherever you want then finding a place to plop down for a year or two. Really see things outside of home and internet poker. And not just see, as he would have the opportunity to live there, learn the language, etc. etc.
