Once people see your style on TV, then you have a bulleye on your head. I agree that his play is mediocre.

But you also have to realize that he doesnt play as many tournaments as some other big name players, he does more on the buisness side of poker with adds and stuff

I still wouldn't want to be heads up with him. I don't care what anyone says, you have to know something about poker to do as well as he has done, and the same goes for Jamie Gold.

I would be hard pressed to criticize any player that's won even one big event. That's more than I've done!

i posted this in wrong thread, so here is my opinion again..

chris moneymaker.. that's the dream of all of us, transfering last 40$ from bankroll to 2.5 million.. i didn't watched that satellite to wsop.. maybe he played it brilliantly! but, what would happen if someone made his gutshot move crashing his AA set on flop ? or maybe chris made gutshot with his all stack? i believe he cought some flush on river! i think if he lost there, no mather how (if he did one bad call, or was bad beaten by some rags against his nuts..) his bankroll would be 0$ and we would see his name on titan freerolls, or poker stars 0.02/0.04$ tables...

to do what he did, you need to have all luck on the world, that's all! can we calling him a fluke ? i think the every player who wins online big event must be a "little" fluke to do it.. but chris moneymaker gives hope to all of us.. that we can only do 5% of what he did.. we only need his luck.. (i think his skill is not hard to reach)

and i think he would be bubble in bbp freerolls!

By winning the WSOP Moneymaker took online poker to the next level and made millions of dollars for the online poker rooms. Anyone that criticizes anyone else because of the way they play poker, which is just a game, probably has an IQ equivalent to Moneymakers starting bankroll. (40).

In 2003, CM won 2.5 Million (leaves him about 1.5M after tax). In the 3 years following his win, he has won about $250,000 as a pro. I think that the numbers below speak for themselves. The "bullseye" on his behind is gonna make it tougher for him in any tournie.

OMG, in 2005 he put up a Goose-Egg and this year 7K. IMO, 2003 was a lucky/great year for him, but he wouldn't cut the mustard as a pro.

Year / EVENT / DATE / PLACE / WINNINGS
2006 / 37th Annual WSOP Limit Hold'em Shootout 07/26/2006 28th $7,153
2004 / UB Poker Classic NLHE 10/01/2004 .........................18th $13,000
2004 / 4th Annual Jack Binion Poker Classic PLHE 08/03/2004 3rd $10,239
2004 / 35th Annual WSOP PL Omaha 05/20/2004 ...........10th $21,000
2004 / Shooting Star Tournament WPT NLHE 03/05/2004 ..2nd $200,000
2003 / WSOP 2003 Main Event 05/23/2003 ....................1st $2,500,000
