Moneymaker makes money spinner

Monday, 7 February 2005

Chris Moneymaker who parlayed his $10,000 World Series entrance fee into $2.5 million in winnings is now launching Moneymaker Gaming.
Moneymaker Gaming manufactures everything poker, from high-end poker sets, gaming accessories, apparel and licensed commemorative chips! Moneymaker gaming has license agreements with Death Row Records, Johnny Chan and FHM Hottie, Vida Guerra! The interest in poker is so great, that the year after Moneymaker beat out 837 players to win the World Series of Poker's main event, the field tripled in size to 2,576. This year, organizers expect 5,000 people to pay the $10,000 World Series entry fee.
'After Moneymaker, poker hit a real critical mass,' says Bhu Srinivasan, publisher of the new poker magazine, All In. 'The growth was tremendous.'
With an estimated 70 million Americans now playing the game, media companies are betting big on poker.
