Michael Phelps Wins $100k in Poker Game

First it was US Olympic medal winning swimmer Ryan Lochte romping naked in Vegas with Prince Harry, now comes word that fellow Olympian (now retired) Michael Phelps just won a huge $100k pot in Sin City playing poker.

The win was reported by TMZ.com and occurred at Caesar’s Palace.

Phelps is no stranger to the game of poker as his friends recently expressed concerns over his potential to blow millions of dollars on the game that has become his second love after swimming. 

A nice chunk of that $100k was supposedly spent at Surrender nightclub in the Wynn, the same hotel where the notorious Prince Harry – Ryan Lochte naked romp took place.
