Here's what I use when traveling with a passport. It's great - don't even realize I'm wearing it, easy to get your stuff out without undressing. Only slight catch is you need to be wearing a belt.

I think the fact that you'll be wearing a fanny pack is the problem.

If you wear a fanny pack thieves will know you are a punk you will be more of a target.

Re: LVL FAQ, Quick Questions, General Vegas Discussion, Etc

There was a (large) thread where tax implications/stuff for WSOP winnings (or maybe US tournaments winnnings/payouts in general) for non-US residents was discussed. IIRC not in this subforum but somewhere else. Anyway I cant seem to find it, I used the search function, advanced search etc. Anyone knows what I am talking about? Thank you

I am not sure about the thread, but I think itís still pretty simple. First you make sure thereís a tax treaty between your home country and the US and if thatís the case and you cash for $5k+, you can ask the WSOP to assist you with obtaining an ITIN.

Thanks, but I moved to a territory with no tax treaty with the US and that is where things get complicated and I wanted to find that thread. Upon further research you are subject to 30% withholding tax but the question is can you do anything about it, such as claim your expenses like other tourney entries and travel expenses and get assessed by the actual profit? In that case it may still be acceptable, if it is just a flat 30% on the winnings above 5k minus the buyin and you cannot deduct anything, it is pretty unattractive.

Found $30 in chips to The D in downtown Vegas from a trip years ago. I don’t live in Vegas and realistically won’t ever use them. Happy to mail them to someone who will. All I ask is that you make at least one bet and post short TR.

Re: LVL FAQ, Quick Questions, General Vegas Discussion, Etc

Any low-rolling Euros who want to a currency exchange this summer on their way out of town, feel free to DM me. I have (up to) Ä1600 I'm looking to trade for USD at the prevailing rate and will be at the WSOP almost every weekend. Maybe we can save each other the conversion fees, which always seem to be exorbitant.
