Thanks. I feel like in the long run it's more +ev to bite the bullet and just pay taxes.

Thanks vrael. Open to US and other countries, not sure exactly which though.

This is actually the final straw that finally made me quit aspiring to being a professional poker player. I also binge played 6 tables at 200NL for over 10,000 and we'll just say the results weren't so pretty.
Thanks man. I'm hoping so.

From what I've researched so far, it was my understanding that you can pay the 25% tax on gambling winnings only up to 5k, after which you must report it as income and pay income tax. I didn't think that the 25% tax and income tax stacked. That would be really ****ty if so. I'm obviously going to be doing a lot more research into the subject before tax season, and I set aside a big chunk of winnings to pay off the IRS when extortion day comes, but I really hope I'm not paying 25% on top of my income tax.

In theory I try to game select as much as I can. In practice, I don't leave too many tables that I sit, but I will occasionally change tables if I have a really tough reg to my left.

Lol, not sure if this is sarcastic or not. I'd be the wrong guy to ask how to be good at poker. Still figuring that out for myself atm

Is it like the new thing to just troll on people with the repetitive taxes reminders despite bragworthy results in bbv?

Honestly dusk2dawn seems like the kind of guy not to make the transition to filing taxes. Contributing to the next Black Friday IMO

Lol, as I stated before most of the hands were HU and the rest were 3-4 handed. Was probably playing too tight tbh
