A young Chris Moneymaker made poker history in 2003, defeating the legendary Sam Farha heads-up to win the World Series of Poker Main Event, setting off the poker boom.
That was over 12 years ago … Moneymaker was celebrating for another reason over the weekend – he turned the big 4-o – Happy Birthday!
Thanks everyone for the birthday wishes. Means a lot
