I hear that there is going to be a 'richie rich' chess tourney to be played in Las Vegas by October this year. Huge money to be won. Side note: Where money is, glamourous girls follow!

I was wondering if there is any online chess site where we can bet money. I dont know if this is illegal. It will be fun though.
