ChinaflagIn a story we’re still having a hard time believing, the AP has reported that a man has died after spending three days gambling online in a cybercafe in China.

Says the AP:

The 30-year-old man fainted at a cybercafe in the city of Guangzhou on Saturday afternoon after he had been playing games online for three days, the Beijing News reported.

Paramedics tried to revive him but failed and he was declared dead at the cafe, it said. The paper said that he may have died from exhaustion brought on by too many hours on the Internet.

Wow. If all Chinese men are this dedicated to online gambling, the WPT has stumbled into a real goldmine.

    He was playing online games such as Warcraft and not playing poker. I’m surprised that so many blogs like this and Gambling911 immediately attributed this to poker.

    Yeah, he was slaying monsters, not donkeys.
    And I don’t see one hot Chinese model in this post. And when I come to WCP I come to be aroused by hot non-sequiter images. Is that asking too much?
