Collaboration will offer Tour participants and fans resources to improve poker skills 

The Moneymaker Tour, which was founded in 2023 by former 2003 World Series of Poker Champion Chris Moneymaker, has partnered with notable poker player Faraz Jaka’s coaching programme, JAKAcoaching to offer Moneymaker Tour players and fans with exclusive coaching offers, materials and access to tools, insights and resources to build and elevate their poker skills.

Faraz Jaka, who won his first WSOP bracelet in the $1,500 NLHE Shootout at the 2023 series and who has more than $12 million in tournament winnings to his name, will provide analyses of hands from the livestreams of Moneymaker Tour stops exclusively for JAKAcoaching members and on his Instagram channel. This analysis will start from the next Moneymaker Tour stop, which kicks off today at the Daytona Beach Racing & Card club and runs until April 29th.

“We are excited to join forces with the Moneymaker Tour to provide participants with practical resources and impact their game in a meaningful way,” said Faraz Jaka, founder of JAKAcoaching, who is also a member of the PokerOrg Player Advisory Board. “Through our partnership, we aim to empower players with the knowledge and skills needed to succeed in today’s competitive poker landscape.”

To kick start their learning journey with JAKAcoaching, the site is offering Moneymaker Tour participants access to an exclusive, free training video featuring Florida poker legend Scott Baumstein which can be found at JAKA.poker/moneymaker.

JAKAcoaching also has a special 16% membership discount offer for Moneymaker Tour players and fans to subscribe and join the thousands of players, from beginners to experienced professionals, who benefit from the full range of coaching materials, expertise and resources offered by JAKAcoaching to take their game to the next level.

“Faraz teaches all skill sets within the game and with the majority of players lying in the mid major market, our partnership is a perfect match”, said Tony Burns, Executive Manager, Moneymaker Tour. “With Faraz’ well proven results and his high respect within the poker community from his peers, we felt our brands complimented each other nicely.”

The Moneymaker Tour, which saw its inaugural stop in May 2023, has been steadily increasing in popularity. Its third series at Hard Rock Casino in Cincinnati in September was the first to draw a $1 Million guaranteed Main Event, with a strong 788 entry field eventually won by Joseph Bakun for more than $208,000.

The Moneymaker Tour was created by 2003 WSOP Champion and ACR Team Pro, Chris Moneymaker and Moneymaker Tour Executive Manager, Tony Burns. The Tour was conceived as a way for Moneymaker to give poker players opportunities to have their own ordinary to extraordinary moments as he did. One such player was Michael Rossi, who echoed Chris’s own story when he won the first Moneymaker Poker Tour $2,500 Buy-in Main Event at Palm Beach Kennel Club. Rossi, who won his seat via an online satellite for just $95, this time courtesy of ACR Poker, took down the tournament for more than $134,000 on May 23, the 20th anniversary of Moneymaker’s 2003 WSOP Main Event victory.

The Moneymaker Tour returns to Daytona Beach Racing & Card Club from April 17-29, and moves on to the Palm Beach Kennel Club from May 2-14.

Thousands of people gathered Saturday morning for the grand opening of the award-winning and wildly popular Pinkbox Doughnuts ® at the Pahrump Nugget Hotel & Casino, located at 681 Hwy. 160.

Pinkbox’s signature grand opening festival-style celebration followed with performances by the Pahrump Valley High School Dance Team and numerous family friendly activities such as balloon art, face painting, and games. Records were broken in doughnut eating contests, and winners received a Pinkbox Doughnuts gift card. In addition, three lucky customers who found a “Pink Ticket” in their doughnut won free doughnuts for a year.

Located by the hotel entrance, across from the registration desk, the new Pinkbox Doughnuts shop welcomes guests with its fun design elements and trademark décor, including pink drips, a graffiti wall, and an over-sized Pinky statue that is a perfect companion for photos.

An illuminated oversized doughnut display case showcases Pinkbox Doughnuts’ full line of more than 70 creatively designed, delicious doughnuts that will be sold seven days a week. The shop also features Pinkbox Doughnuts’ full coffee program including premium roast coffee, lattes, cappuccinos, mochas, nitro cold brew and more.
