In 2003, an accountant from the USA lived a modest life and had very usual job. It’s about Chris Moneymaker who one day decided to register for the $85 online satellite. The American was able to win this competition and went to Las Vegas to participate in the Main Event for $10 000.
Subsequently, Chris did not just take part in the Main Event, but fulfilled every poker player’s dream and won the WSOP bracelet. It brought him the worldwide fame as well.
The player decided to shake the old days up. Moneymaker applied for the same online satellite as 16 years ago and won the desired ticket. Now, he has one more chance to take down the $10K Main Event. There is a huge difference between the tournaments (on the number of participants): in 2003, there were 839 entries; this time the event has already attracted over 3 000 players and the registration is still open.
Overall, the event is scheduled for three entrance days: 1a, 1b and 1c. Chris moved to the second game day and now he has a 95 000-chip stack while an average stack of the tournament is 80 000. There are 1 900 players remained in the event.
The guy has big chances to repeat his success of 2003.
