Being married to a poker player

Thomas ‘Thunder’ Keller is a young player who won a World Series of Poker event this year only days after getting married.  He interviews his wife on what it’s like ot be married to a professional poker player in this two part series.  My favorite quote:

When you go through big swings, I go through them, as well. I think
that what you don’t realize is that losing or winning is just as
emotional for me as it is for you. When you are losing, your mood
becomes pretty miserable. You slam the mouse, scream in frustation, and
generally are not pleasant to be around. It’s difficult because I want
to comfort you and be there for you, but nothing I do really helps.
