Weekend review: Moneymaker wins in Hollywood, MicroMillions tops $3m in prizes

March 17, 2014

Chris Moneymaker has a new bit of bling to add to his trophy cabinet thanks to a $36,295 win in the Hollywood Poker Open St Louis Regional Championship. Sure, it’s a mouthful; sure, it’s not quite got the same level of prestige of his $2,500,000 WSOP win in 2003; sure, beating a field of 67 isn’t quite as large a feat as topping 839 players, but a win is a win. Congrats, Chris.

Team PokerStars Pro Chris Moneymaker: almost final tabled the PCA Main Event, too

Macau Millions
Moneymaker wasn’t the only player raking it in over the weekend. Hao Chen won the Macau Millions, the largest tournament field to have assembled in Asia with 1,804 players taking part. Chen collected HK$550,000 ($70,830.66), a trophy and a lovely winner’s photo. Find out more by clicking here.

Big wins for the grinders
Check out all results from this weekend’s big final table results at PokerStars. A couple of great results for EPT champ Mike “Timex” McDonald ($56,813) and Fergal “midnitekowby” Nealon ($56,250) who won the $109+R Sunday Rebuy and $215 Sunday Supersonic respectively. There was a six-way chop in the Sunday Million which saw all six players pocket six-figure scores. All very tidy. Over in the Sunday Warm-Up it was Count_NN who took the won and the $97,119 first-place payout – more on that here.

Rafa vs The World
In two days’ time you’ll be able to play Rafa Nadal at his own game. Okay, not literally his own game in terms of tennis, but his own game in terms of poker. The world number one is going to be playing on the Facebook PokerStars poker app this Wednesday, March 19 at 5:30pm ET from Miami, Florida where the King of Clay is competing in the Sony Open. Find out more about how you can play Rafa by clicking here.
