You have to be a very good player, if you can pay such a large sum for one tournament. I suppose not all players were financed by someone with money. 5 Asian players in the top 11 means something and this thing must to be appreciated. Congratulations to these players who had a good profit in this game.

It's amazing how they can pay more than 1 million dollars to play a tournament, but these are players who have a lot of money and were invited by professional poker players. Congratulations to Aaron Zang for the trophy and for the 16 million dollars, although the winner was economically speaking Bryn Kenney since making a pact I assure a large sum of money. But the most important thing about this tournament is that it was a charity tournament and an excellent £ 2,700,000 tournament was raised. See you at the tables...

This was as big of a tax evasion tournament as one can be - 'charity event' my a$$ - it's ridiculous...

We live in a world where taxes are too exaggerated in certain areas. Charity event or not i consider that it is not normal to pay very high taxes on those winnings. That money was taxed once by the state of every player and sponsors. An entry into this tournament is very large and the taxes must to be few not huge. This rule with huge taxes is also in sports. This is very bad for all but good for the guvernants. Governments must change this law.

It must have been a good tournament. And the participation was high enough,
if you take in mind the buy in.
And of course that deal was probably the best thing, of the game.
Second one got four millions more from the winner of the tournament Smile
