Darvin Moon, poker’s "everyman" who finished 2nd in last year’s World Series of Poker Main Event, is on the cover of the May issue of Ante Up Magazine.
Moon, a Maryland logger in the family business, won a satellite at Wheeling Island Casino and turned it into $5 million in Las Vegas. He admits that’s impossible for the money not to change you, but he’s remained as humble, humorous and level-headed as always. He’ll visit Daytona Beach Kennel Club in Florida May 15-16 for the Venetian Deep Stack Charity Classic Poker Tournament.
