Chris Moneymaker Back on Top

Former World Champion Chris Moneymaker last night won the €1,100 8-Game for €12,000 and a lovely shiny PokerStars trophy. Okay, it's not the $2,500,000 that he won back in 2003, nor is it going to boost his $3,488,787 in live winnings radically, but a win's a win.

Moneymaker, whose WSOP win is partly credited with kicking off the online poker revolution, topped a 1-2-3 podium finish for Team PokerStars Pro beating Matthias De Meulder and Chad Brown to the trophy.

Brown had just a few hours earlier stone bubbled the Main Event running queens into aces so the €4,500 cash would have helped to soothe some of those cooler chills. And you can check out this interview with Moneymaker about the last ten years here.
