I love it when a person’s last name turns out to be either hilariously or inspiringly literal – some examples that come to mind are:
- William Wordsworth, the Poet
- Frank Beard who was the only beardless member of ZZ Top
- Anthony Weiner, most famous for his sexting scandal, and most of all
- Chris Moneymaker who translated an $86 satellite win to the $2.30 million WSOP Main Event win in 2003. Say what?!!
In fact, Wikipedia states that Chris Moneymaker’s ancestors actually made silver and gold coins and chose “Moneymaker” as their last name as a modification of their German last name "Nurmacher.” What a way to make his ancestors proud!
In true Baazigar style and as a tribute to Chris and to all of us who grind the Poker felt daily looking for glory and the big score, PokerBaazi will be hosting an online tournament called “The Moneymaker” on October 1 with a whopping Rs. 1 Cr GTD with Rs. 25 Lakhs going to the winner! Say what-what?!!
It will be India’s biggest online poker tournament till date and there will be a zillion satellites starting at Rs.10 for a chance at winning the buy-in amount of Rs. 11,000.
There are also a number of fun contests on Facebook where you can win a ticket to this tournament, so make sure you check those out, too. There’s also a deposit code ‘MONEYMAKER’ with which you can get a free ticket on a 30K deposit.
Besides playing the daily satellites and participating in the contests, my checklist for preparing for India’s biggest online Poker Tournament:
- Change my last name to Moneymaker.
Ladies and Gentlemen, the words massive, epic and beast are thrown around very easily these days so I’m going to say that this event is going to be mammoth not just massive, legendary not just epic, and the winner shall be known as Drogon, the beast of beasts!
Let’s wage war on the PokerBaazi tables on October 1 to be worthy of becoming India’s first Moneymaker!
