I won over $13,000 on a nickel denomination Fireball slot 15 years ago. The max bet was 100 nickels.

There are websites where speculators can go and invest in Daniel Negreanu or other poker players, buying a slice of their action in a specific tournament.

This is why players can bust out of a high-roller tournament with a buy-in of, say, $300,000, and simply shrug their shoulders and not be upset. They may have collected $300K from investors by selling them 80-90% of their action.
So many better men, a few of them friends, are dead. And a thousand thousand slimy things live on, and so do I.

Most of the big name poker players are sponsored into tournaments. I know one poker pro that gets $1 million of buy ins paid for each year. There are lots of poker players getting smaller amounts like $100k a year of free buy ins.
At my age, a "Life In Prison" sentence is not much of a deterrent.
