Moon wins $250,000 at MSPT FireKeepers

21 May 2019

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Just days after taking down HPT Ameristar East Chicago for $183,899, Chris Moon topped a record-breaking field of 1,592 entries to take down the MSPT FireKeepers Casino Hotel for $258,407. It was the largest MSPT Main Event ever outside of Las Vegas.

"Best week of my life!" Moon said about his two victories. Moon, who's "been playing since I was trying not to get a job in high school, trying to play basement games and stuff," had an interactive and vocal rail cheering him on throughout the final table, which was an asset for Moon. "It was nice because the HPT, no one from my family or circle was there, so it was like a really quiet gallery every time I won. So it was good to have friends here."
