A surprising robbery of poker champion

The friend of the fourfold owner of World poker series gold bracelet, Daniel Alaei, lost about 400 thousand dollars which were stolen from his house. But the most interesting fact in the story is that robbers even didn't touch bills. They took out a great amount of poker cash chips, the value of which made 400 thousand dollars in a money equivalent.

Poker fans are incredibly surprised with such strange news. It is difficult to find a poker player who would take poker chips instead of cash from a casino. It is an inconvertible currency outside a casino and it is not clear what to do with it in everyday life. Besides, it is not reasonable to store chips at home as Alaei’s friend did. It is also interesting why there was no reliable security system in the house where such expensive values were kept.

Skilled players see only one reason of such an action-to shelter from taxes. The matter is that according to the American laws the prize of 357 thousand dollars is surely taxed at 35%. It is possible to save the whole sum of money only without cashing it yet. But, as the story shows such way is not always effective. Now the cash chips are rummaged by police officers, but the probability to find them is extremely small.
