Triumphant Poker Champion Flies Home Economy Class
By philip
Greg Raymer, the newly crowned World Series Poker Champion and newly made multi-millionaire, showed his wealth and fame won’t change, by making his triumphant return from Vegas on a budget plane flight.

'Yes, we stayed on Southwest - we'd already paid for tickets,' explained Greg, nicknamed ‘the Fossilman’. 'I'm going to be glad to go first class when someone else is paying, but I can't see spending $1,000 for a wider seat and free drinks for four hours.'

Greg flew back to Connecticut a hero, after clinching the $5 million title last week. When asked if he’d gone on any spending sprees, he replied characteristically: 'After I won, a lot of people gave me logo shirts, things like that. So I wanted to get another suitcase,' he recalled. 'The only store open at the Aladdin was 'high-end' - $800 for a suitcase. I said forget about it, even if I did just win $5 million. Somebody said, 'You can get a Rolex.' Why do I want to spend $5,000 on a watch? I'm happy with my $100 watch.'
