The Moneymaker Tour to hit the Caribbean in the fall

29 April 2024

(PRESS RELEASE) -- The Moneymaker Tour has announced a new partnership with The Caribbean Poker Series to host the first international Moneymaker Main Event in Aruba from 4-6 October 2024.

Set against the backdrop of Aruba’s stunning beaches and lively culture, The Moneymaker Tour will coincide with the $300,000 guaranteed Caribbean Poker Series, which will take place at The Casino Aruba at Hilton from 26 September to 6 October, and offer players of all levels the chance to compete for prestigious prizes.

“A collaboration between Moneymaker Poker Tour and The Caribbean Poker Series will create a synergy that benefits both organizations, as well as poker players and fans around the world,” said Craig Evans, Managing Director of the Caribbean Poker Series.

The Moneymaker Tour Main Event will bring players three days of fun poker action from Friday, 4 October to Sunday, 6 October 2024. The $1,500 buy-in Main Event, will bolster a guaranteed prize pool of $200,000.

Established by 2003 WSOP Champion and ACR Team Pro, Chris Moneymaker and Moneymaker Tour Executive Manager, Tony Burns in 2023, the Moneymaker Tour was conceived as a way to provide poker players with the opportunity to experience their own ordinary to extraordinary moments, mirroring Moneymaker’s journey.

"Chris Moneymaker's Main Event win in 2003 not only had an impact on poker in the United States, but around the globe. We are excited to partner with the Caribbean Poker Series to host our first international Moneymaker Tour Main Event”, said Tony Burns, Executive Manager.

The Moneymaker Tour, which saw its inaugural stop in May 2023, has been steadily increasing in popularity. Its second series of 2024 at Palm Beach Kennel Club in Florida, drew players from around the globe, where Pavlos Kasselouris seized victory in the $500,000 guaranteed Main Event, claiming $121,485 in prize money and the coveted Moneymaker crystal trophy. The Tour’s current stop at Daytona Beach, Florida wraps up today, and after paying out over $600,000 in guaranteed prize pools.

Following the event at Daytona Beach, the Moneymaker Tour will return to Palm Beach Kennel Club in Florida from 2-14 May 2024.
