  1. Satellite tournaments give poker players with modest bank rolls an opportunity to play outside of their usual comfort zone. And with the latest tournament changes at 888poker, MTT grinders will want to find out how they can get in amongst the action on the cheap. Turning a small buy-in into a huge score is the poker dream with the most famous example being of course, Chris Moneymaker. The man who sparked the poker boom of the noughties qualified into the 2003 World Series of Poker Main Event for a mere $87 and the rest, they say, is history. With 888poker adding $500,000 in guarantees to
  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. Standing in their way is the most successful playoff quarterback of all time, Tom Brady, leading his new team, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. 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

Huck S
  5. "I'm gonna make this happen. Somehow, I'm gonna win one of these damn passes." After calling his shot earlier this year, Nathan Manuel has done it. He's won a PokerStars Players No-Limit Hold’em Championship Platinum Pass. Winning the Pass involved topping a field of 825 entries in the $86 buy-in Moneymaker PSPC Tour stop at Run It Up Reno. After 128 players hit the money, the field worked its way down to the final table. Manuel entered the final table with the chip lead and had to battle with a tough group of competitors, including three-time Run It Up Reno trophy winner Andrew Cha and
  6. On more than one occasion, it has been said that winning the World Series of Poker Main Event is every poker player's dream. For most though, plunking down $10,000 just for a ticket to the big show is a tough pill to swallow. That’s where satellite tournaments come into play. Year after year, players of every skill level take their shot in satellite tournaments, hoping that they can earn a seat into the WSOP Main for a fraction of the cost. After all, there’s no better feeling than being able to play for the big money while still maintaining your bankroll. No doubt in 2018 there will be pl
  7. After four days of play, Tom Marchese defeated the 536-entry field of the inaugural partypoker MILLIONS Vegas at the ARIA Resort & Casino to take home the $1,000,000 first place prize.

The trip to Sin City paid off for partypoker in what was a dream final table lineup packed with some of the biggest names in the game of poker vying for the MILLIONS title and seven-figure payday.
  8. The 2019 Poker Hall of Fame finalists includes nine World Series of Poker bracelet winners, three former Main Event champions, and for the first time ever, a magician. Well, The Magician. Antonio Esfandiari, once known as 'The Magician, is the only first-time finalist in the group of 10 players selected by the WSOP Hall of Fame Committee that will now be voted on by living Hall of Fame members and a select panel of poker media and industry personnel. The top two vote-getters will be inducted into the Poker Hall of Fame later this summer. Voters are tasked with considering the following c
  9. 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. After explaining to his academic advisor that he was making f
  10. In January, PokerStars made history by hosting the PokerStars Players Championship - the largest $25,000 buy-in poker tournament of all time. Now, seven months later they've announced that they're bringing it back and giving it a new host city.

On Sunday, Moneymaker confirmed to PocketFives that he won a 2019 WSOP Main Event seat via an $80 All-In Satellite on WSOP.com. Now 16 years later, for the 50th annual WSOP, Moneymaker will again compete in the $10,000 Main Event for a fraction of the cost. In 2003, Moneymaker was one of 839 entries in the
  12. "In 2004 poker was in such a boom you couldn’t walk into a 7/11 without seeing a display of chips and cards and stuff like that." When it comes to the rise of poker, and more specifically online poker, few have the same perspective of Dan Goldman, the one-time Chief Marketing Officer for the, then, fledgling online poker site PokerStars. 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

  16. Poker action on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean came into focus throughout October. Another edition of WSOP Europe got underway - but didn't finish - in Rozvadov, Czech while some of the best online players in New Jersey were busy chasing down NJCOOP titles.

  17. "I'd love to be a poker player forever. I would love to do what Doyle Brunson did, obviously who wouldn't?" You may not recognize him now that he chopped off all of his hair, trimmed his bushy beard, and has a swollen black eye from a bike-riding adventure gone wrong, but Arlie Shaban is showing up everywhere in poker right now. The Big Brother Canada contestant turned Enterprise Rent-A-Car 9-5er has a new role as a Herculean. His rise has been fast and it doesn't look like he's slowing down anytime soon, especially now that Shaban has the likes of Jason Somerville, the Twitch Poker communi

The Moneymaker PSPC Tour is nine-stop tour running across the United States that will award one $30,000 Platinum Pass at each stop - and the buy-in is just $86. Each Platinum Pass comes with a buy-in to the $25,000 PokerStars Players Championship this January at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure and an additional $5,0
