2003 WSOP Main Event Final Hand

2003 WSOP Main Event Final Hand

Moneymaker had parlayed a win in a $86 online satellite (not $39 as has widely been told, even in his own book) into a top-three finish in a $600 satellite to earn his Main Event buyin. His friend, Bruce Peery, had promised to buy half of his action, so he’d be guaranteed $5,000 even if he didn’t cash. Peery’s own finances caused him to renege, but Moneymaker’s dad Mike and his friend David Gamble each kicked in 20%, while two other friends bought 5%, and the rest is history.

Farha had already won a bracelet in a 1996 $2,500 Pot Limit Omaha event and would win two more in Omaha events in 2006 and 2010.
