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!

Ok, but how much did he spend for a big win? Curious about that, don't know much about gambling. Seems like people who get the big payoff drop a bundle before"hand"...Badump-bump! Thanks. I'll be here all week.

If he won a hundred grand, that means he placed a very big bet. It's too bad he didn't consider all the American babies that could use help with food and medicine.

Look at who he was playing with. Mr Rogers with the sesame street gang. I would have won $200k
