9780060746759: Moneymaker: How an Amateur Poker Player Turned $40 into $2.5 Million at the World Series of Poker

In 2004 the number of entrants -- and the winning pool -- at the World Series of Poker tripled, thanks in large part to Chris Moneymaker, an amateur player who came out of nowhere to win the 2003 Series, and prove to newcomers and poker pros alike that anything is possible with a chip and a chair.

Moneymaker was a young accountant from Tennessee who loved to gamble but only took up cards after college. Three years later he was playing a $40 game of online Texas Hold 'Em and won a coveted seat at the 2003 World Series of Poker. Borrowing money to get to Las Vegas, he entered his first real-time tournament and spent the next four days battling for a top spot at the final table.

Filled with everything from his early gambling ventures to a play-by-play of his major hands at the World Series of Poker, Moneymaker is a gripping, fast-paced story for anyone who has ever dreamed of winning it big.

Even if you don't follow poker, you'll love and appreciate this story. A humble, married accountant who never played poker in his life, starts playing, and after about three years, he enters an online tournament and wins $80k. A few weeks later in early 2003, he enters his first live tournament - the incredible World Series of Poker, and forks over the $40 entrance fee, and ends up winning $2.5 million, instantly becoming the envy of poker players around the world. This is the story of Chris Moneymaker and this is his real, Rocky-to-riches story.

Nobody has a story quite like Chris Moneymaker, and in his book, he's not only going to give you his personal saga, but he's also going to show us all how the average Joe can transform their lives, pay off their mortgages, send kids to university, and continually play poker and win, in this amazing memoir/how-too book that's going to appeal to just about everyone - from mass media to the entire poker community.
