Funny that the first prize might be just a little pocket money for this guy after all. Always fascinates me what is dragging these rich people into gambling in the first place, if they already have the money then the adrenaline could easily be found elsewhere too...

It is probably an ego thing,I don't know how good this particular guy is but when you have millions in the bank then playing a tourney that costs less than a couple of grand can't be much of a gamble.....It's like me playing a $1 tournament.

The thing is when I'll have millions in the bank my recreational activites won't include anything that is related this closely to spending money. I see no point 'having fun' by risking what I already have, of course you are right this buy-in was probably like worth as much as his weekly phone bill.

It can't be the money that drives you if you are super rich and these investor/hedge-fund guys would probably make as much money by going to work for a couple of days.If he has got millions in the bank then the interest for the day would be covering the buy in. Smile

I don't know what drives the ones like Warren Buffet (if not money), but sure as hell I want what he's having. I read somewhere that he eats high sugar, high carb things regularly - I doubt he could benefit from those in a long run, but I can see why anybody in their 80s would not give two $hits about health.
