Chris Moneymaker

In 2004 the variety of entrants -- and the successful pool -- on the international sequence of Poker tripled, thank you largely to Chris Moneymaker, an beginner participant who got here out of nowhere to win the 2003 sequence, and end up to beginners and poker professionals alike that whatever is feasible with a chip and a chair.

Moneymaker was once a tender accountant from Tennessee who enjoyed to gamble yet purely took up playing cards after university. 3 years later he was once enjoying a $40 online game of on-line Texas carry 'Em and received a coveted seat on the 2003 global sequence of Poker. Borrowing funds to get to Las Vegas, he entered his first real-time event and spent the subsequent 4 days fighting for a best spot on the ultimate table.

Filled with every thing from his early playing ventures to a play-by-play of his significant palms on the global sequence of Poker, Moneymaker is a gripping, fast moving tale for somebody who has ever dreamed of profitable it big.
