Daytona Beach Racing & Card Club to host $600,000 Moneymaker Poker Tour

Daytona Beach Racing and Card Club is set to host the largest poker tournament in its history in April with the Moneymaker Poker Tour, a 12-trophy event featuring poker legend Chris Moneymaker.

The tournament, the latest in the club’s Great American Poker Tournaments series, will feature $600,000 in guaranteed prizes and be held 17-29 April. Moneymaker helped popularize poker by winning the Main Event at the 2003 World Series of Poker while working as an accountant and part-time restaurant employee. He has gone on to be an ambassador for poker and founded his own branded tour.

“As a highly regarded professional in the poker world, Chris Moneymaker brings considerable prestige to this event,” said Fred Guzman, president and general manager of Daytona Beach Racing & Card Club. “His track record of exceeding guarantees and ensuring the highest quality of play adds an extra layer of excitement to our Great American Poker Tournaments series.”

Daytona Beach Racing & Card Club launched its series of branded poker tournaments in 2023 to yield bigger payouts and provide local as well as regional players a new trend in poker tournaments.

To date, the GAPT series has resulted in $1.5 million in winnings and is recognized as a top choice for tournament players in Florida.

“We are excited to be hosting another stop this year with Chris Moneymaker and Tony Burns,” GAPT Tournament Director Byron Rodriguez said. “They have been exceptional partners, and we expect a great environment of good action and non-stop poker play. This year we are happy to announce that there will be over $600,000 in guaranteed prizes for the event.”
