Chris Moneymaker, the legendary poker champion who transformed the world of poker with his historic 2003 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Main Event victory, is bringing his highly anticipated Moneymaker Poker Tour to the Palm Beach Kennel Club. From February 15th to 27th, 2024, West Palm Beach, Florida, will become a poker battleground, hosting over a thousand players from across the nation and beyond, all vying for glory and a slice of the over $1 million in prize money up for grabs.

The Palm Beach Kennel Club (PBKC), known for its prestigious gaming environment and top-tier events, is set to host an array of competitions that promise not only to challenge the most seasoned players but also to offer a platform for emerging talents to shine. The event lineup boasts 24 trophy events over 13 action-packed days, ensuring a poker spectacle like no other. Highlighting the tournament’s commitment to an immersive and engaging experience, select final tables will be live-streamed, bringing the intensity and drama of high-stakes poker to fans worldwide.

The tournament will kick off with the “Moneymaker Mystery Bounty” event, featuring a tantalizing $250,000 prize pool for a buy-in of $500, setting the stage for a series of high-octane matches. The tour will culminate in a series of marquee events, including the Moneymaker Deep Stack, Purple Chip Bounty, Big O Championship, and the eagerly anticipated Main Event. With buy-ins ranging from an accessible $86 to $2,500, the tour offers opportunities for players of all levels to compete.

In a strategic move to enhance the tour’s allure, Moneymaker has partnered with Bull and Boar BBQ Shop as the official sponsor. This collaboration underscores the tour’s growth trajectory and its appeal within the broader entertainment landscape, where poker has seen a resurgence in popularity. This resurgence is fueled by a vibrant content ecosystem, from engaging vlogs to innovative streaming platforms, which have collectively reinvigorated the poker community’s passion.

Moneymaker’s journey from an online qualifier to a WSOP champion, known as the “Moneymaker Effect,” catalyzed a poker boom that brought the game to the mainstream.

This legacy continues with the Moneymaker Poker Tour, which aims to capture the imagination of a new generation of players and fans.
