Bury's Jon Collins does, for one.
He's off to Las Vegas soon to take part in 'Millionaire Chess', from 9 to 13 October.
The event is being organised by GM Maurice Ashley (pictured right), who has held a dream of organising such an event for at least ten years.
To date, 120 have entered the Open, all of whom are rated over 2200. In total 525 people will be playing across the six sections.
The only drawback to this amazing tournament is the entry fee... $1,000.
