I've been watching a few tournaments and I was wondering: how do international poker players take tournament prize money home?
For example, winner of 50th World Series of Poker (WSOP) 2019: Hossein Ensan won 10M$. He is from Germany.
Does he just travel with 10M cash? That wouldn't be safe, right? But as a foreigner, there are probably restrictions on opening bank accounts in the USA. What is the go-to move in this case? Does the casino just send him a wire-transfer with 10M?
