In their coming out party back in May, the Moneymaker Tour came out swinging by breaking their Main Event guarantee at the Palm Beach Kennel Club. They show no signs of slowing down now.

The final flight of their second-ever Main Event wraps up today at the Daytona Beach Racing and Card Club. Once again, they’ve crushed the $300,000 guarantee attached to the marquee event.

“We set the guarantee at $300k,” said Executive Tour Manager Tony Burns. “Unofficial numbers have us at a $511,650 prize pool and well over $100k going to first place.”

With three starting flights total, notable names like Michael Jagroo, Timothy Miles, husband and wife Zhen and Jessica Cai have all found bags for Day 2. Chris Moneymaker is still in search of a bag and is in the field of Day 1c. The Main Event champion for their first stop, Michael Rossi, finds himself searching for a bag today as well.

Be a part of future stops

The Moneymaker Tour still has a few days before crowning their Daytona Main Event champion, but it’s not too early to think about planning for their next stops.

The tour’s next stop will be the Hard Rock Casino Cincinnati from September 21st to October 2nd with over $2 million in guarantees. After that, they head back to where it all started at the Palm Beach Kennel Club from October 25th to November 6th.
