Moneymaker Hurting

Chris Moneymaker

It's been awhile since we checked in on 2003 World Series of Poker champ and Team PokerStars Pro Chris Moneymaker. We decided to go have a look, and what we found wasn't good.

Moneymaker had just raised to 550 under the gun and received a call from Patryk Slusarek in the hijack. The big blind came along and three players saw a flop of {q-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{8-Hearts}. The big blind checked, Moneymaker continued for 1,025, and Slusarek popped it 2,700. The big blind folded and Moneymaker did the same.

It wasn't a huge loss, but it seemed indicative of Moneymaker's day thus far as he is down to 9,800.
