Darvin Moon has a huge chip lead of the last 9 remaining players in the Main Event, WSOP 2009. He's already guaranteed to become a millionare even if he ends up last on the final table in November. But Darvin takes everything very relaxed and continue working his "9-5" shift in the woods.
Darvin Moon, 45, is an amateur poker player who has no previous documented cashes before the WSOP Main Event. Now he's guaranteed at least $1 million dollars, with the chance to win another $7 million if he takes home the tournament. Even though he's guaranteed so much money, he has no plans to stop working until the final table in November this year.
-"I will go working in the woods as usual, and when it's time to get out from there to play the final table, I will do so"
So how did he make it all the way to the final table?
Darvin Moon doesn't have a lot of money in the bank, and he's an amateur poker player. He won his ticket to the Main Event through a satellite at a casino in West Virginia, but he could never imagine even in his wildest fantasies that he would make it this far in the tournament. But he was wrong, as the whole cards and flops were the best possible for him from start until the final table. Now he has a big chip lead and also a great chance of winning the whole tournament.
-"With the cards I'm getting it's easy. The first hand I sat down I had pocket kings and rivered trips. Three hands later I had pocket aces and flopped trips. How hard is it?"
Darvin Moon also says that he has no plans on stop working even after the final table has been played. However he plans to help his parents with the winnings from the tournament and also he consider a few month of traveling around in Alaska.
Whatever Woods decide to do before and after the final table, one must say that he seems to be a true American working class hero and it will be interesting to follow him on the final table.
