Andrew Amatrudo is 102 years old and still playing poker. He has reached that fine age by playing poker at Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort, which is next door to where he lives in Atlantic City. Better known as Andy, he celebrated his 102nd birthday last Monday at the place he loves, and doing what he loves to do, having a beer and

playing poker, wonder if he has ever tried playing real money poker online. The resort gave him a chocolate

cake to celebrate the occasion. Tom Gitto is the director of poker operations at the Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort, and has paid tribute to Mr Amatrudo by saying, “He’s here almost every day. He’s part of the Taj family. When he doesn’t show up, we’ll get calls asking where he is, so we’ll check up on him. He’s a legend. You see people in their 80s and 90s who have such a hard time, but he’s 102 and he doesn’t miss a beat.” Mr Amatrudo said, “I’m not going to sit home. If I sit home, I’ll go berserk. I love to play poker. That’s all I live for

anymore. I love the game”. He went on to add, “It keeps me sharp. It’s the strategy, the playing of the cards, the betting. Sometimes you win and sometimes you lose. You can’t win all the time, you know.” Mr Amatrudo lost his wife 13 years ago, but he is still going strong. He eats and drinks what he wants, and he is not on any special diet. He does have a scooter to help him around, though he can walk with the aid of a walking stick. Perhaps the younger generation of today should make a note about how Mr Amatrudo lives his life. The game of poker and the world as a whole needs characters like this gentleman. Long live Andy Amatrudo.
