He was also sure he would be able to win a bracelet in Wsop series. Tommy Nguyen, probably knows the poker game very well and is also optimistic. This Canadian student has won a 1 million dollars prize and became the ninth millionaire crowned at the 2018 WSOP but after taxes he is no longer a millionaire. Smile

Massive well done to Tommy Nguyen for topping a field of 6,260 to win the $1,500 buy-in Monster Stack tournament and scooping over $1 million! That is a hell of a lot of money. I just wonder how much he will have to pay his income taxes to the federal government next year.
