Michael Phelps

CRUSHES Vegas

All Michael Phelps knows how to do is WIN -- the world's most medaled man hit Vegas this week ... and sources tell TMZ he walked off with $100,000 from a single poker game.

Phelps has been touring the world with his buddies since scooping up 6 Olympic medals -- starting in the Maldives -- and last weekend, the crew took on Sin City.

According to our sources, Phelps and his buds played a cash poker game at Caesar's Palace, and naturally ... Phelps cleaned up with $100K in winnings.

We're told Michael blew a nice chunk of it at Surrender nightclub in the Wynn -- which is not nearly as exciting as Prince Harry's night at that hotel.

Step up your game, Phelps!

Thats Liam Neeson on the left. Nice to see an Olympic gold medalist hanging out in casinos. Next we'll see phelps hitting the strip clubs with vince neil getting lap dances with his medal around his neck.

I would think that it would be easy to win big at the casino is you have a ton of money and not having to worry about your losses since you still have multimillions in the bank.

100k is a huge win, dude must know his cards, 'cause when you play in Vegas at the table it ain't easy to walk away with as much as you walked in with ;D

His girlfriend is saying "Just shutup Michael and give me the money." She's pretty bold, just kind of grabbing up his chips and he's still playing. Good thing she really, really loves him.

This man should have all his olympic medals revoked lance armstrong has his titles revoked for drugs this is worse. My son wanted to be like michael phelps but im pulling him out of swimming asap and putting him into a more suitable environment like soccer or badminton or batoning. He is suppose to be a role model but hes playing texas holdem or regular im not sure.

" We're told Michael blew a nice chunk of it at Surrender nightclub in the Wynn"...And he'll now be forced to pay taxes on the $100,000, the gambling lose is not deductabled, however, you're "F'ed" on the winnings. He most likely just broke even for the night...
