Legal ruling - Poker champ exempt from child maintenance - relevant to income tax
Interesting article on Hakki v Secretary of State for Work and Pensions & Anor  EWCA Civ 530.
Basically court of appeal ruled that even though he made a living from poker, it did not constitute earnings. The judge did say it was possible to conceive a case where a gamblers income might be taxable.
The full ruling is here
