      Hi there,

      that's a tough one, really - if you're talking legal legal, I believe the UK is one of few countries where it is 100% legal and winnings are tax free. Some, like Germany, place (online) poker in a grey area and it's not really forbidden, but there is no concrete legislation for winnings.

      So to get really concrete answers, you'd have to ask lawyers of the respective countries.

      My friend told me, when I win big on online poker, I should migrate to others country because the government of the others country dont care about the foreigner's income sources. For example migrate to Australia, the government of Australia dont care the foreigner's income sources.
      Is the above statement correct? Any comment? Thanks. :D
