The poker world changed in the summer of 2003. An accountant named Chris Moneymaker from Georgia won his way into the WSOP Main Event that year via an $86 online satellite.
Moneymaker went on to make the final table and battled with Sammy Farha heads-up for the most coveted prize in poker. He defeated Farha, won the WSOP Main Event bracelet, and created a poker boom that is still in existence.
Today those two had a reunion in the Event Center.
Moneymaker played and bagged a big stack in Flight A of the SHRPO Championship and Farha is playing this evening. The two spent a few minutes catching up between hands and it was a special moment this evening.
Eric Harkins from Image Masters was the official WSOP photographer in 2003 and he captured all the action. Today, he was present once again and was able to document the two of them together.
