Moneymaker vs Farha Rematch, Sept 14
      #326319 - 08/28/03 09:55 AM

Saw this on RGP.

A rematch of the HU WSOP final between Moneymaker and Farha on Stars for all to watch. $40K up for grabs with Stars putting up 10 and each player putting in 15K of their own. What sounds really cool is we'll be able to see the hole cards. However, that will wait until a replay a couple weeks later. Should be very entertaining and I would hope the online sites do more of these kinds of promotions.

What a great idea (the hole cards that is). They've given them both a +EV tournament and all of us an insight to some high stakes poker.

Also you don't have to go to RGP to see that it's on, 2+2 have some updated banners talking up this heads up match. I haven't clicked to see if it has the information your article gives though.

Duh, I didn't see the ad. I never read those things. So much for the power of internet banner ads. Of course, you click on the link and it just brings you to Stars home page with no additional information.

Wow. This is an insane idea. I can't wait. It's too bad that neither of them are HU players. I personally would rather see something like Erik123 vs Joebuttons (best name I could pick out of thin air) or something, but they would obviously be too unknown to the public.

Does the winner get to take on the King of the Zoo?

All great tourney players are HU players, or they would have never won a tourney.

Sam is clearly more experienced, but that was one of the most entertaining HU matches I have ever seen when it was down to the final two. Moneymaker has gotten flamed so much on rgp that it is not even funny. Respected posters over there are constantly claiming his victory can be attributed to nothing but luck and the ability to suckout after his poor plays. IMO, he played great and deserves to be Champ for the next year. His calls against Boyd and others have been called insane. I call them gutsy, and give him more credit for his ability to smell weakness than any other player this year. Most of the Moneymaker flames are out of jealousy or total lack of acknowledgement that he is more talented than many so called "wcp's". People act as if he won a sit-N-go, as opposed to a 5 day event against the best in the world.

I think the top tourney players will come to understand that all that dead money is not necessarily dead. I feel Moneymaker is a class act, and deserved the win. Too bad he sold off all those pieces, but at least they were to friends and family.

What was his explanation as to why he sold pieces of himself when his buy in was less than $100?
