present    

Sarahsmile you say ask the casinos? He is the casino you idiot, he's one of the owners of Full Tilt poker. Not to mention the fact that he's made tens of millions playing poker online thats been recorded by high stakes tracking sites, 12 million minus buy-in costs in tournaments, also tracked, and tens of millions in cash games in vegas tracked and constantly talked about by anyone who follows the big vegas games. Don't make such sweeping statements on things you obviously have no clue about.

I know present, don't be so sure of yourself. He doesn't own the casinos in Atlantic City, Connecticut, Las Vegas, or London. Don't believe the hype.

Nothing on spousal support?

You mean to say she is not trying to live the high life off of his considerable talent and skill?

Sound down right un-American for her to not try to live off of the accomplishments of her ex-husband.

He's worth at at least $40 Million from FT shares + the millions from "The Corporation", Online winnings, Live cash games, private cash games and tournament winnings, it's safe to estimate his net-worth at over $50 Million.

This guy is so rich he turned down Nike as a sponsor.
