The Real Winner Of the WSOP: The IRS

Thanks to PokerListings we can find out who was taxed the most at the WSOP Main Event final table — with it being revealed that the main event winner, Qui Nguyen, takes home $4,682,153 of his $8,005,310 prize.

Over $3.3 million to the tax man. That’s got to hurt!

The article goes on to reveal that “both Kenny in 6th pace and Vojtech Ruzicka of the Czech Republic in 5th place are estimated to have taken home more than 4th place finisher Michael Ruane of the USA after tax.”

First rule of playing the Main, move to the UK first.
