Default TCOOP High Roller - I Must Be Missing Something

Was perusing the TCOOP schedule when I came across something bizarre. TCOOP Event #47, the $2100 High Roller has 56 entrants at the moment. 40 of them are from Greece. Could someone please tell me what that's about. Is there a deep-pocketed Greek backer putting up $84,000, or what?

There is similar weirdness in other events. 90% of the registrants in the $320 8-Game are Greek; >25% in the Main Event.

It's for tax avoidance as Greece has a crazy tax system where they get taxed daily on winnings or something like that . So they reg a big tourney to make it look like they havent won so much then unreg it again etc

The system creates the rules, but the ppl, regardless of where they are, they'll find a way of going around it.

Impressive
