Well the comparison between then in poker results has no meaning Smile
Withe the winnings the robber had so far, you can say he was

My first reaction for this would be - how could the babysitter possibly know where is the safe situated in the house? The another one is why would you lock her inside the bathroom without tying her arms and legs together first? Amateur hour.

Darren Elias probably bust him up several times, and he decides for revenge. To rob him. Dumb idiot.
And asking babysitter where is the money. It's even more dumber

This guy sounds like a real piece of work and i hope that he gets severely punished for this crime. To break into someone's home is one of the worst crimes to do and a long jail sentence awaits

This guy Shannon Soroka knew that this man made money from poker or he acted at the tip. These attacker do not realize one thing: if you won millions of dollars in poker, that does not mean that money is kept in the house. This aggressor with a strange name it deserves to be put in prison but also reeducated in the detention period.

Some pokerpro does keep a sizeable amount of money back in their homes, especially if it comes from private cashgames so then the IRS could not go after their winnings. Altough everything that comes from casinos and tourneys gets registered for this reason.

It is of course bad situation when people go into your house and with gun. Not safe to be in your home, very bad. Of course easy to understand why burglars go into famous poker players home, they see poker pros win so much money, they think they have millions in cash

If you are not keeping Picassos or more than 10k in cash in your home then you should not be afraid to leave it behind IMO Big Smile
