Professional Gambler. Considered to be one of the very best professional poker and gin rummy players of all time. The 2003 movie "High Roller: The Stu Ungar Story" was loosely based on his colorful life. He won numerous professional poker and gin rummy tournaments, including the 1980, 1981 and 1997 World Series of Poker. Ungar was found dead in a Las Vegas motel room. The medical examiner concluded that he had died of a heart condition brought on by his years of drug abuse. (bio by: Brian H.)
