Event 2: Chris Moneymaker Fires the Omaha

Chris Moneymaker

The Omaha/8 field had a nice number at the start and it continues to grow as they approach last year’s count after less than half an hour. This tournament drew 74 entries to the smaller buy-in tournament and we should push up a nice prize pool.

Chris Moneymaker grabbed an early seat and your 2003 WSOP Main Event Champ, the impetus of the poker boom, has been on a nice run the last few days. We hosted the final tournament on the $86 Moneymaker PSPC Tour, which award seats in the big PokerStars event coming up in January, and he made it through the 957-entry field to finish in second place.

Last night, he was part of the Feeding South Florida charity event and went on to win the entire thing. As a PokerStars ambassador, he was ineligible to win the $30,000 Platinum Pass and it went to second place finisher Esteban Garcia.

Moneymaker is part of a small but talented field that also includes Joel Harwood, David Shmuel, and Martin Ryan (who captured the WSOP Circuit casino championship a few weeks ago at our sister room in Coconut Creek).
