Posted by marqis: Are you guys just sticking to play money now? Or will you keep depositing into a bottomless money pit (that would make no sense)?
I haven't created any poker .es account yet. I'm still waiting for confirmation about that fact. It doesn't make sense that you pay just for the winnings, not for the whole benefit. If I win €1000 but I lose €5000 should I pay taxes for the €1000 I've won? It's crazy. The government says: "Ok, when you play the lottery, you don't declare the loss that you have, just the winnings, so it's the same". They compare poker with lottery but imho should be compared to shares, which you declare the winnings and the loss.
