Dario Minieri Wins Battle Against the Italian Tax Man

Italian poker player, and former PokerStars Team Pro, Dario Minieri, who stepped into the public spotlight during the 2007 World Series of Poker Main Event wearing his trademark striped scarf, has won his fight with the Italian government over the declaration of his poker winnings.

Earlier this week, the Provincial Tax Commission of Rome dropped its charges against the now scarfless Minieri according to the Italian news site AGIMEG.

Minieri is now a resident of Malta where he can play online poker with international players, and where he hopes to avoid the scrutiny of the Italian tax man.

Poker fans may also remember that Minieri was the first player to ever use his PokerStars FPPs to buy a Porsche. Take a trip back in time with us and watch this PokerNews interview with Minieri and none other than Jay “WhoJedi” Newnum.
