Poker pro and founder of Card Player Magazine, along with its web counterpart, gave his beloved wife Allyn quite the scare this week.


Allyn Jaffrey described the ordeal via her Facebook account:

"Had a BIG scare! Came home from a FAB PHS high school "Legends Reunion" in Cali. Went straight to Rich Korbin's Celebration of Life. Came home to see my sweet boy doubled over in pain moaning. Called our doc and after describing his symptoms, which he had for days, doc said Barry needed to get to the ER immediately. After many hours, tests, poking and prodding, we learned that thank G-D it isn't life threatening!! Probably an ulcer, real bad tummy. Poor boy.. needs some extra love, and meds, tums and toast."
