As many of you already know, former WSOP November Niner Sam Holden has decided to step away from poker for a while to pursue a degree in Philosophy. I have been thinking back on several players who have left the game either by choice or by necessity and the following seems to be the reasons behind "pros" leaving the game.

1. Poker Becomes too Much of a Grind



2. The Game Gets too Hard



3. They Luckboxed Their Way to Success or They Are Not as Good as Everyone Thought.



4. Priorities Change



5. External Factors Force Them to Leave the Game
