This week, we wrote about a student at the University of San Diego School of Law who debated whether to risk having to miss some sessions of his tax law class—a class for which he knew attendance counted toward the grade—to participate in the World Series of Poker. The professor of the class, Paul Caron, reported on TaxProf Blog that the student went to the tournament and ultimately won $24,000, "which presumably took the sting out of missing three of my classes."
