Moose International is a charitable organization originally founded in 1888 by Dr. Henry Wilson. There are numerous lodges throughout the country where members come together to hangout and enjoy life together. Each year, the poker enthusiasts in the group gather in Las Vegas for some low-stress poker tournaments at the Golden Nugget.

Per a chop arrangement, four other players also received over $4,000 in the biggest event of the series. Each tournament featured a guaranteed prize pool of at least $3,000 all the way up to $25,000.
