A professional poker player locks himself in darkness, loneliness, and shit-smells…all for a bet.
This best describes this man’s time right now. As of November 21, poker player Rich Alati locked himself in a Vegas bathroom for a $100,000 wager, shutting him off from sunlight and society until Christmas time. Aussie Rory Young, friend, and fellow poker player created this bet as a way to test Alati’s mental toughness.
No electronics, music, communication, or drugs are allowed during his stint in the joint. It’s just him, alone in a dark room with whatever thoughts that are running through his head.
Although the family has tried to talk him out of the wager, he wasn’t having any of it. However, they can watch a live stream of Alati to monitor his personal safety. All they can do now is wait till the jingle bells begin ringing.
