Johnny Moss Poker Professional

Johnny Moss was born in Marshall, Texas in 1907 and in grew up in Odessa, Texas where he learned how to gamble as a young boy. A group of cheaters taught him how to cheat in games, but Johnny Moss put this knowledge to good use. As a teenager he was hired by a local saloon to watch over games and make sure they were played fair. While he was keeping games safe from cheaters, he was also learning the strategy behind playing poker. Two years later he became a rounder, a player who travels the country looking for gambling action.

Johnny Moss The World Series of Poker

In 1949 Johnny Moss played with Nick the Greek in a five month long poker marathon set up by Benny Binion, winning anywhere from $2 million to $4 million. At the end of the marathon, down millions of dollars, Nick the Greek uttered what has become one of the most famous poker quotations ever, “Mr. Moss, I have to let you go.”

Because of people like Nick the Greek, Binion and Moss, poker became popular and eventually a World Series of Poker was organized. Moss won the 1970, 1971, and 1974 World Series of Poker main events, tying him with Stu Ungar for the most WSOP main event titles. For the 1970 event, Moss was actually elected the champion by his peers and only received a silver cup as his prize. He played at every WSOP from 1970 to the 1995 World Series and during his career he won 8 WSOP bracelets and over $680,000 in tournament play.
