|Description||The $10,000 Buy-In No-Limit Texas Hold ‘Em event. His jackpot: $8.9 million. Who needs school? Maybe Duhamel can double-down and buy a horse with his winnings. Big-time horse races come with some serious prize money. The richest of them all is the Dubai World Cup Night, the brainchild of vice president and prime minister of the United Arab Emirates and ruler of Dubai, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum (who is worth a cool $12 billion). Yoshimi Ichikawa, the owner of 2011 winner Victoire Pisa, collected $6 million. In other horse races, the winner of the Japan Cup, thanks to the strength of the yen, beats out the biggest prize in American racing, the Breeder’s Cup Classic, $3.13 million to $2.7 million. What about the two most popular American team sports, football and baseball? It pays well to win those championships too. The World Series-winning San Francisco Giants took home $7.9 million. The Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers made a cool $8.5 million.
