2003 WSOP champion Chris Moneymaker changed the world of poker as thousands of players have attempted and in some cases failed to win the coveted title. The million-dollar prize pools and television celebrities are some of the reasons why this main event continues to dominate the gambling world. Over the years, the WSOP Main Event has given birth to ‘poker heroes’ who will always be respected in the field.
Although the WSOP Championship title holds great power in the poker scene, the aftermath is not as big. What remains in the minds of players are two things: skill and performance as these are two things which separate you from the rest. Since 2003, a number of former champions have either attempted to win the title again and have failed, while others have won once and simply walked away with the title.
