Final Table #95: Why Win The WSOP?


This week on my Final Table poker radio show, Dennis Phillips and I talked with Chris Moneymaker about the burden of winning the World Series Of Poker Main Event. The topic came up because of some online comments regarding our discussion last week about whether Joseph Cheong blew up in this year's Main Event because he didn't want the pressure that comes with being the champion. Since Chris has arguably gotten more media attention than anyone since sparking the poker boom by winning the title 7 years ago, we wanted his perspective.

Then Dennis and I recapped our weekend at the Hollywood Casino in Lawrenceburg, Indiana (outside Cincinnati) (where I made the final table of the deep stack event), as we sat down with tournament director Kevin Dawn and poker room manager Thom Krauss, who shared some great stories from his long career in the poker world.
