After Winning $1,500 WSOP Event, Robin Williams Enters Rehab

Fishkingcomp_1 Two days after winning his first WSOP bracelet, Robin Williams, going under the pseudonym of "Paul Kobel," has checked himself into rehab for alcoholism.

Says his publicist earlier today:

"After 20 years of sobriety, Robin Williams found himself drinking again and has decided to take proactive measures to deal with this for his own well-being and the well-being of his family."

His publicist failed to mention anything about Williams' explosion onto the poker scene after winning Event #41 ($1,500 NLH).

However, as seen in this photo composite at right, perhaps it was Williams' victory that drove him to alcoholism. Perhaps he couldn't handle the fame that poker has brought him. Perhaps, within hours of winning, he returned to the streets, coping with his newfound poker fame the only way he knows how: with booze.


For now, we can only speculate. But when we hear more, rest assured that Wicked Chops Poker will be the first to bring you the truth. Cause that's what we do best around here. The truth.
