I think the reason why so many top-end gamblers blow so much of their money on wagers outside their specialist field is that they are not driven by the accumulation of wealth but by the thrill of winning, the thrill of being right. Stu Ungar was the perfect example of this - unbeatable at gin and practically unbeatable at poker he would blow his millions betting on sports or golf which he couldn't play to save his life. Again it comes down to the thrill of winning and not the amassing of wealth.
