Does anyone know which Pro forgot 300 000 $ in a Taxi Cab in Las Vegas.

The Taxi driver gave the money back through his company and did not recieve a single $ reward from the Pro for being honest. His company though gave him 1000$.

Isn't it becoming more amazing the increasing number of poker pros who walk around with huge amounts of cash in bags, cases and the like and travel by taxi and other forms of public transport?

Apart from being fairly laissez faire about their money they are at risk of becoming easy targets for ne'erdowells who want to relieve them of heir winnings!

These poker pro's are idiots and deserve to lose they're money if they do stupid things like this.

They need to find a way to travel apart from taxi's or buses, especially if they are carrying around money that would entice any thief.

I lost once 10 bucks a noone give it back to me. Aww crap! Aww crap! Aww crap!

I'm know I'm not a poker pro but I think I deserve the same consideration.
Even more, If the driver had given me back those ten buks I would've given him $3.

Well ... it is nice for the owner of those 300K that the driver return it, although it was may bethe tip for a good ride, who knows.

Gl all!

I also saw this news on tv but they also did not say what poker pro lost them, they said just it was well known.

They also said that the poker pro gave the cab driver 1000 dollars for recovering the money. I thought he deserved more than that.

These poker pro's have no real grasp on the value of money. When you read of things like this it makes me really angry and some of these people deserve to lose the money. Get a grip on reality fella's, thats a life changing amount of money

How the hell can you forget $300,000 in a taxi, I mean cmon it's the same sh1t like you're forgetting your brain at home when leaving it and even if I'm very drunk there's no way I would forget it. And BTW I also saw this news elsewhere and they said that it's the PP who gave the driver that $1000 and not the company... CRAZY WORLD.

there is no way he traveled with all his earnings from poker. he had more than that in bank accounts and home(s)safe. in worst case scenario the driver take those money crammed into his pocket, thats why he deserved at least $50.000 for honesty and eternal friendship drinking together at least once per year laughing at the situation back then. now i need to see one of those crappy videos from youtube with 'hope in humanity restored' to drop the puke feelings i have for this protard.
