Moneymaker Sits

• Taso 1: 50-100, 0 ante

Chris Moneymaker has just sat down here in Brasilia room and was warmly greeted by the players at his table, immediately keen to hear stories of his win in 2003. One player confirmed that if he won the guaranteed $10,000,000 he would definitely quit his job.

Moneymaker played the first hand he was dealt, raising to 225 and getting one caller. The flop was {7-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{9-Diamonds} and both players checked, as they would on the turn {6-Diamonds}. The river was the {6-Clubs}and when Moneymaker checked his opponent bet 800.

“I guess my two pair is no good.” Moneymaker said mucking his cards and telling his opponent he knew by the bet size he had an {8-}. He would have paid 700 he told him.
