    Austria has a tax treaty with the US, so they effectively pay no tax.

    Doesn't make much sense for Australians to play WSOP events in the US given that 30% is withheld on net wins over $5k

    Hence why German Pius Heinz sorted out some arrangement with Austria last year before the final table took place.

    Agree. Win 8 million pay 30% in tax. Who in their right mind would want 5.6 million dollars for 8 days work.

    Atheist you are an optimist.No matter how much they steal ,as long as you get something it is OK.
    This is the mentality with the Australian public.
    The government and the operators steal over 60% of money raised in the Lotto and other lotteries.
    They only hand back to the public 30% to 40% of the total pool.
    And the public goes over the moon with the size of the prizes.
    Nobody ever asks ,"Where is the other 60% of the money?".

    Yeah. The money is much better in the hands of a 20 something boy from another country, than paying for say, hospitals, schools or roads.

    Hi Linda,
    If the Australian and State governments did what you suggest,spend money on roads,schools and hospitals,Australia would be Utopia.
    When Gillard gave herself a $250,000pa raise,at the same time the government was cutting back on the budget for roads,schools and hospitals.
    Our nurses and teachers do not strike for nothing.
    So where has the other 60% gone?

    Hi Strong Play,good to have you back.
    I looked up on Google,under "When was the last pay increase for PM Gillard?"
    The answer is 1st of December 2011.
    According to Google it was $90,000pa.I had heard it was $250,000.Probably the figure grew by the time it got to me.
    Nevertheless,Gillard is now paid more than Obama and Cameron.Penny Wong gets more than Obama and Cameron.
    In fact most of out politicians get more than Obama and Cameron.
    They also receive most of these benefits for the rest of their lives.
    It is absurd.
    This increase was not even debated by the government.They debated the budget and giving money to the pensioners but thir own
    money grab went through without debate.
    So where does the60% realy go?Roads,hospitals,schools?Are you kidding?
    Wake up Australia.And I thought Russian politicians were corrupt.
