  2. Super Bowl 55 is just hours away, and it is a matchup for the ages, as Patrick Mahomes leads the Kansas City Chiefs into battle, looking for their second straight Super Bowl title.

Some of the biggest names in poker are betting on in the big game, and not just on which team is going to cover the spread. Tony Dunst Two-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner and current World Poker Tour commentator Tony Dunst says that he is holding off on betting the gam
  3. Chris Moneymaker didn’t become of the best ambassadors in poker by being a high-stakes crusher or a Hollywood celebrity. It was practically divine intervention that married the Moneymaker name with his down-to-earth personality and stuck him in front of the ESPN cameras holding up bricks of cash as the winner of the 2003 World Series of Poker Main Event. It turns out, he was perfectly suited for the role of a poker ambassador. But on the final day of 2020, Moneymaker took to Twitter to announce that, effective immediately, he and PokerStars were mutually parting ways bringing to an end his

He Tweeted last week, "This idea that current pros 'owe' some past group of pros for paving the way or growing the game is just nonsense."

  6. While poker Hall of Famer Barry Greenstein (pictured) may be well-known today, the three-time bracelet winner was an unknown entity during his first forays into the Las Vegas poker scene in the 1990s. In an interview with PokerNews, Greenstein revealed how he got his start in poker and how he banked double the $2.5 million won by Chris Moneymaker in the 2003 WSOP Main Event. While working toward a PhD in mathematics, Greenstein could often be found not editing his thesis, but rather playing marathon sessions at the poker tables.

Back in the pre-Moneymaker days Goldman and his team were tasked with finding a way to not just overtake the industry-leading Paradise Poker but also, make online poker more acceptable to the masses. Goldman wasn’t just "around" for the Moneymaker effect
  20. On more than one occasion, it has been said that winning the World Series of Poker Main Event is every poker player's dream.
