    Default WSOP main event 7th place earns more than guy in 6th due to UK Tax Laws

    Because the UK has no tax on gambling income, the lucky mofo in 7th pocketed more than the guy in sixth. What a Life !




    The total 2019 WSOP Main event final table payouts combined for a total $30,825,000. - but the taxman was owed a whopping 39% of it !

    The taxman obviously always wins!

    Default

    If 1st got 10mil and had to pay 4.6mil in Tax then that would be 46% Tax not 39% would it not?

    Whatever it is 46% or 39% it's A joke and I'm so glad to be from the UK!!
