Poker Professional William (Bill) Gustafik was found dead earlier this week in his condo in Las Vegas. Gustafik was a professional poker player and chiropractor in the Las Vegas area. His wife, Jill Rockcastle is currently being held in custody after being found unconcious in San Luis Obispo.
Gustafik was found stabbed to dead in the exclusive Panorama Towers, which is also home to several other professional poker players including David Williams.
One of Gustafik’s most notable poker victories was at Bay 101 Shooting Stars, San Jose $10,000 WPT event where he finished 10th place taking home $80,000.
Gustafik was said by many to always be a very happy and positive person and even speaks about his wife on several occasions in his PokerPages profile, saying he is a “devoted husband,” and that “[w]ith my beautiful wife by my side and my 9 yr old daughter giving me tips, nothing can stop me.” He also states that if “I could change anything in the world: My wife would play live and not just online even though she wins.”
Gustafik leaves behind a 9 year old daughter. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family, may he rest in peace.
