Well-Known Poker Tournament Pro David Saab Facing Huge Drug-Dealing Charges!

David Saab, a successful poker pro of nearly 40 years who had lots of tournament success in the 2000s was busted at the end of January with two other men and charged with cocaine trafficking of more than 20 kilos of the drug ($5 million street value). He know faces 25 years in prison and this might put an end to his poker career, at least his brick and mortar poker career.

As far as hit future bars and cement poker career...we'll have to wait and see.

My take: Obviously Saab was not making enough playing poker to suit his tastes and needs. Or maybe he was blowing off to much money in live poker games.
