WSOP 2017 champion will pay $4,000,000 in taxes
We already know that young American Scott Blumstein became the winner of World Series of Poker 2017 Main Event. His official prize money is officially $8,150,000, but after paying taxes he will be left with… a little over half of that. This year WSOP Main Event 2017 gathered 7,221 people. That’s a lot. There were more registrations only back in 2010 (7,319 buy-ins) and 2006 (8.773). In addition to that, for the first time in six years the number of players was more than 7,000. This was the line they were trying but couldn’t reach.
