Moneymaker PSPC Tour

3 Jul 2018

(PRESS RELEASE) -- To mark the 15th anniversary of his 2003 World Series of Poker (WSOP) win, PokerStars Ambassador and recent Poker Hall of Fame nominee Chris Moneymaker has formulated a new multi-stop ‘Moneymaker PSPC Tour’ of the United States kicking off on Saturday, 4 August.

The tour is designed to give players the chance to emulate Chris’ win back in 2003 when he turned $86 into $2,500,000 by beating 838 players at the WSOP Main Event, sparking the famous ‘Moneymaker Effect.’

Players will have the chance to follow in his footsteps and win life-changing sums of money by parlaying their initial $86 Moneymaker PSPC Tour buy-in into a Platinum Pass, worth $30,000, to the PokerStars Players No Limit Hold’em Championship (PSPC).

The ‘Moneymaker PSPC Tour,’ Chris’ brain-child, will hit card rooms across the United States and feature one online tournament on PokerStars New Jersey in September. Each stop will run a live $86 tournament awarding cash prizes with the winner also receiving an added Platinum Pass.

Winning players will also receive support from Chris as they prepare for the PSPC felt in January 2019.

“It’s been 15 years since the big win and it only feels like yesterday. It was one of the most incredible experiences of my life and I want to give someone else the opportunity to feel that #winningmoment,” said Chris. “I’ve played a lot of poker for years and during that time I’ve got to know lots of people at live events and meet-ups. Now U.S. fans will have the chance to win an amazing prize and have some fun along the way. Come join me to play, you never know, this could lead to a life-changing moment like I had. I am looking forward to playing with some familiar faces at every stop.”
