After their inaugural stop at the Palm Beach Kennel Club prior to the full Vegas summer schedule, the new Moneymaker Tour is ready to take their show back on the road.
Chris Moneymaker and Tony Burns take their new poker tour to the Daytona Beach Racing and Card Club for 12 days of poker action. If their first stop was any indication, this one should be fun.
The stop will feature eight trophy events and more than $500,000 of guarantees with buy-ins ranging from $86 to $1,500.
“Florida has some of the best poker action in the country and to come to Central Florida won’t disappoint our following,” said Executive Manager Tony Burns. “Central Florida was my home for 20 years, so to come home is personally special for me.”
The first stop was incredibly special
Their first stop created some great moments and winners over the course of the series.
The poker world fell in love with Florida local Gene Calden, as the 100-year-old poker player felted Moneymaker multiple times and won one of the side events that week.
The first Moneymaker Tour Main Event champion was Michael Rossi, who took a Moneymaker-esque path to victory. He won a satellite on ACR to gain entry, similar to the 2003 WSOP Main Event champion himself. Moneymaker and Phil Nagy made the victory extra special by gifting Rossi a WSOP Main Event package and a $100,000 Triton package to honor his special win.
What special moments does this second stop have in store? Who will be the newest champion? Will Moneymaker himself win one of his own trophies? We want to know. That’s why we’ll be there on-site again just like the first stop, this time bringing coverage during the Main Event Thursday, August 24 – Monday, August 28. We hope to see you there.
