ST. LOUIS – Chris Moneymaker, who stopped by NewsChannel 5 on Friday for a live interview, is a world champion poker player.

Moneymaker was in the middle of a tournament at Hollywood Casino with thousands of dollars on the line, but he left his chips on the table to honor his interview commitment with us.

He didn't win that tournament, but entered the main event, taking home $36,000.

Congratulations!
