I have no clue what to do with them, everyone telling me to put it in the RRSP...I'm thinking of buying a new car.

Damn I'm in shock, anyways Peace.

Dude, congrats! I love poker, and doing that well against 600 is impressive!

Whatever you do with the money, don't forget about the tax man come tax time. Make sure you have set aside $$ to pay off the taxes if they did not already deduct it. Its gonna be over 30% of the winnings to Uncle Sam. You don't want to be short on April 15, 2008.

Props!

You could donate it, and use it as a deductible.

Make a list of all the things you want to buy with the rest, then wait one week and see which things you still want badly and buy them. Waiting is key because you will be more level headed then.

Don't blow the money on tickets or clubbing or a girl. Spend it on yourself and spend it on things you will still have the next day.

If you have any debt, pay it off entirely.

This is the best advice you will -EVER- get, online or off. Seriously, take his advice to heart.

Act like you do not have it and invest every penny - either buy real estate or put the money in a spider fund. My Chevron stock has gone up over $90k in the last month and a half.

start an e-trade account or go to a stock broker and invest half of it in Dendreon (DNDN), they are about get FDA approval for the first therapeutic cancer vaccine, its one of the highest traded stocks on wall street right now. you will be filthy rich in 3 years. I already made a nice chunk of change off this stock.
