    I just won 500$ in a mens open tournament. However, I am still in highschool and plan to go to college. How much can I take?

    technically u cant take any but u can take enough to reimburse u for travel, hotel, etc. and ur coach can take the rest. Some players get around the rule by having their coach take it and then give it to them

    ya ok.. I thought there was a rule that you could take up to 10,000$ but I may be wrong. Is that true?
