First of all, I will help my son financially. Since he always does not have enough money to pay for utilities. I'll put the rest in the bank at interest for the future. We have from 2 to 4% for foreign currency.

I will withdraw most of the funds in real money, lower my playable limits. I will leave my poker bankroll with a large margin

I'll most likely take the same steps prior to the tournament. They may be a little more distance between them and at a slightly brisker pace.

I will travel abroad. I'd always like to discover the world, learn more about other cultures and enjoy nature.

Hopefully I have enough to hire a coach to help me improve my game and win more.

Would consider playing the same game again to see if I could win it consistently. It would be great to find a game that I could be regularly.

I would buy a bigger boat and more computer screens so that I could play more poker:D

Buy my own home and new PC, payoff the debts, deposit money to my poker accounts (rooms) where I play the most of time, $100 each, that's enough to play the way I used to before the big win. Maybe anything else.
But I know what I would NOT do. Try higher stakes or tourneys to double this money.

A believe I would relocate a percentage for future gaming, about 10%, and invest on the rest.

Of course, it all depends on what the amount is. But in general, I would invest this money in securities, stocks, cryptocurrency and real estate.

Use 15% to build my bankroll and start play higher stakes. Invest 70% and use the rest as a reward such as taking my whole family on a fantastic holiday.

I wouldn't tell anyone. It is a long road with many difficulties, it would be my personal achievement, it is what I prepare myself for every day, it would be to reaffirm that this is the best decision I could have made.

Hello! It depends on the size of the win. I would like to try my hand at an expensive tournament.
