WSOP Main Event

And the big winner is....


Not who you'd think.

Snuffy linked me to this article about the tax burdens for the final table players.

Of the $32,731,625 final table prize pool as much as $14,793,416 could be paid in taxes to various governments.  How ridiculous is that?

Ironically, the Russian may pay the least amount of taxes! 

Be sure to check out this article for all the details.

Yeah, that's why I didn't win the ME this year, too much bookwork, who needs it?

All those rich people SHOULD pay extra taxes. Right?
