Doubt it's from a tourney but this guy won $303k at The Bellagio this month:

Money was cashed out at Cosmo, which is how they identified the guy. Guess Cosmo didn't have very many $300K cashouts last night.

I do like this line from the story:
Quote:
The man arrived at the office in sweats and a T-shirt to reclaim his money, but he didn't have any identification.
So typical for a poker player. Forget $300K--check. Sweats--check. T-Shirt--check. No ID--check--I mean, who would expect to need ID to claim $300,000 in cash?

Above story says cabbie hasn't gotten anything from the guy, but was promised a reward.

Was that Haseeb cashing out his box to give the money to his family? LOL.

No, otherwise there would be already 3 threads in NVG by different people who randomly googled "300k lost in a cab" with a 2000 words explanation of Haseeb on the first page of all of them.

Why do you think it's a poker player? Cosmo doesn't have poker.

theory: the people saying the taxi driver is stupid for giving it back would get caught in 5 minutes if they were in that situation and go to prison

It would not be easy to find $300k in the cab that you are driving, keep it, and get away with it.
