Michael Phelps

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!

Take this fake story down already. Those pictures are from Harrah's AC from over a year ago. So easily fooled. Oh and Phelps himself said it's not true.

Take this fake post down already. Those pictures are from over a year ago in Harrah's in Atlantic City and Phelps himself denied the story.

Wow you guys really should check your facts before you report stuff.

Phelps himself tweeted he did not win 100K. And a few weeks ago you posted pictures of him "partying with his boys in maldives" well those are pictures from 2009 in Turks and Caicos.

I no longer trust the details of TMZ! Sure hes in vegas, and sure he was in maldives but your "exclusives" are fake!
