RIP Slim. A true legend has passed.

Great quotes from this giant of the game...

"You can shear a sheep a hundred times,but you can only skin it once."

"Look around the table. if you don't see a sucker,get up,because you're the sucker."

"They anticipate losing when they sit down and I try my darnedest not to disappoint one of them."

This guy went through some strange shit in his lifetime. I hope people gather all the facts before drawing a conclusion.
