Chris Moneymaker is set to launch his own Poker Series in July.

Chris Moneymaker is a regular at high-stakes poker tournaments and is set to launch his own poker tournament in Texas. However, at the moment, Texas is not the best place to hold an inaugural poker tournament.

Texas has a seemingly hostile poker environment and card rooms operate under the mercies of the local government. For example, earlier this month, 9 club operators from two Houston-based card rooms were arrested during a raid.

As a result, the two card rooms were shut down until further notice. According to the authorities, the card rooms were operating illegally and hence they were facilitating organized crime.

By holding his inaugural poker series in Texas, Moneymaker may be staring right down the barrel of a loaded gun, so to speak.

Chris announced his intentions to start his own poker tournament in an 88-sec video posted on Twitter. In the video, Chris appeals to Texas residents to support their local card rooms. Speaking to cards chat, Moneymaker admitted that he is worried by the uncertainty surrounding poker in Texas.


Moneymaker Poker Series

Chris Moneymaker, a PokerStars ambassador, will launch Moneymaker Poker Series in Australia and the United States.
The moneymaker Poker Series features two stopovers in Texas. The first stopover will be in Edinburg, Texas and the second stopover will be in Corpus Christi, Texas.


Moneymaker Poker Series 2019 Schedule

• July 22-28 Brisbane Australia (Acacia Ridge)
• July 30-August 3 Adelaide, Australia (Royal Poker Club)
• August 14-18 Edinburg, Texas (The House Club Poker Room and Lounge)
• August 20-25 Corpus Christi, Texas (Poker Kings Card House)
The full schedules, as well as the buy-ins of each event, are yet to be released. As a matter of fact, the only information on the half-developed is the would-be dates and locations of the series.

However, Moneymaker confirmed to CardsChat that he is angling for $500 Main Event buy-in. He also confirmed that entry fees will be subject to demand.


Pokerstars’ silent

As mentioned earlier, Chris Moneymaker is a PokerStars brand ambassador. However, it seems like he will be going at it alone. By the look of things, Pokerstars is planning to sit this one out.

The online poker titan has not endorsed Moneymaker’s project and there’s no brand presence on the incomplete series’ website and on social media. However, PokerStars may decide to join the fray later on after the first tournament.
