The Moneymaker Tour has smashed its Main Event guarantee at Daytona Beach Racing and Card Club. The tour arrived at its second stop of the inaugural series advertising a $300,000 guarantee but impressive support built that up to $511,650 with a six-figure sum paid out to the eventual winner.

Moneymaker Tour Sees Impressive Support

The Moneymaker Tour is seeing impressive support after only two stops during its first season. After being founded by 2003 WSOP Main Event Champion Chris Moneymaker and Tony Burns who acts as Executive Tour Manager, we are already seeing that this will be a series to watch in the coming years.

At Daytona Beach Racing and Card Club, it was Dion Jagroo who took the plaudits, beating Ricardo Eyzaguirre to the Main Event title after the pair agreed a deal that would see Jagroo collect $102,222 while his opponent settled for $81,383.

Moneymaker Tour Stopping at Hard Rock Casino Cincinnati

Already, the Moneymaker Tour is excitedly preparing for its next stop at the Hard Rock Casino Cincinnati. From September 21 to October 2 more than $2 million is already lined up for players to fight over. Given recent form, we expect that figure to be much higher.

We also now know that a return is planned to the Palm Beach Kennel Club where the Moneymaker Tour made its debut. In late October players will be heading back for 12 days of action with 27 trophy events scheduled and more than $500,000 up for grabs.

Noah Carbone, PBKC Poker Room Director, said:

“We are very excited to welcome back the Moneymaker Tour at PBKC. The inaugural tour event in May proved to be a great fit for us with a variety of popular events appealing to all types of poker players.”

Tony Burns, the Moneymaker Tour’s co-founder and Executive Manager, added:

“The Moneymaker Tour looks forward to returning to PBKC this October as we continue to grow our partnership. The inaugural series was an amazing success with great stories from Gene Calden to Main Event winner Mike Rossi.”

Just how much more can this fledgling tour grow in the coming years? From what we’ve seen so far the sky's the limit.
