After almost two decades of representing PokerStars, Chris Moneymaker, has announced it is parting ways with the online poker operator.
Moneymaker is world famous for his 2003, rags to riches win of the World Series of Poker Main Event, which resulted in the online poker boom of the early naughties.
PokerStars had created this farewell video, speaking to prominent members of the poker community to wish Moneymaker all the best.
PokerStars has been working on a major new product feature, Tips from the Moneymaker, so the timing of Moneymakers exit is a bit peculiar—it remains to be seen if PokerStars will can the Tips with Moneymaker idea now.
At the same time Moneymaker announced he was leaving the company, French live player Kalidou Sow, Russian online pro Mikhail “innerpsy” Shalamov and a trio of streamers under the name OP Poker also ended their partnerships with the operator.
