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.
