Event #57: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Championship

The Original Moneymaker


Yes, "poker boom" and "Chris Moneymaker" are synonymous, but without 2002 Main Event Champion Robert Varkonyi, there may be no Moneymaker.

Varkonyi took home $2,000,000 for his victory eight years ago, and has since added over $250,000 to his live tournament earnings.

The former champ is seated at the feature table in the Red Section of the Amazon Room, and is above starting stack with 34,000 chips.
