One of the primary sponsors of the 2021 World Series of Poker, VELO, is running a campaign to help players see how poker skills can transition to other areas in life. Thanks to them, we could chat with none other than the man who started the poker boom and was one of the main catalysts for massive poker adoption.

Chris Moneymaker agreed to share his experience, thoughts, and advice in this interview.
