Whilst in my IVA, I entered a large poker tournament expecting to go out at the first table. I actually won the whole thing and pocketed £300.

All past tense now, should this have gone into my IVA pot? its more of a curiosity at this stage. I was talking (as in bragging) about this yesterday and I never at any point thought about my IVA at the time, till it hit me yesterday.
It was the only time I ever played in this type of event and not even competed again since that day.

I didn't quite see myself ever getting on the same table as James Bond and Le Chiffre

It would have fallen under the windfall category and, assuming you had the usual £500 trigger, would not have been payable to your creditors.

Lucky win ! Under the £500 clause it would be yours to keep so you were ok ....

Better luck next time... might get a few more 0's on the end !
