For him, sport is an adrenaline rush, a quest for boundaries, but also a kind of self-destruction.
Alcohol took its toll on me as I gambled more than usual. I don’t struggle like many gamblers of all rules. I know people who know how to get you out of the playroom and eat. It takes me an hour and then they leave with great joy. I never did that. Especially not at that point, if I’d been drinking and lost the whole weapon, explains David Vondrek in his new work The 13th Room.

I have two children aged twelve and thirteen. I was not a good father and neither was my mother. I will at least try to pay some attention to them.

Finally, he managed to get the bacon vertical. At the age of five, he neither eats nor drinks, pays off his debts, and accumulates nearly eight thousand crowns. He got a steady job and if he persevered, he would pay off his loan within two years.
A hunter never knows if he will fall again. It is very fast. But I want to see that I have an instinct for self-preservation. Mainly because of the children. I want to know how they will develop and help them a little in life. But I’m very realistic, if the power goes out, I’ll end up on the street, I don’t have to choose to get arrested, I’ll end up a lot worse,” added David Vondrek.
