Who is Darvin Moon?

I've seen pictures of the guy for days now on pokernews.

He seems to wear a Saints hat every day, which interests me because I am a Saints fan.

Does anyone know anything about him?, like even a link showing where he's from?

His father was an astronaut. When he was growing up he constantly moved around and had nothing to do but play poker with his pet lizard (Colby). His mother taught him astrology. His favorite food is pickled eggs.

Re: Who is Darvin Moon?

To be honest, if I ever made it this deep int the ME, I wold be doing everything in my power to make myself look like the biggest donk ever to cash in any event ever. Most likely including berating other players for completely standard/obvious plays and boasting about my ability to lay down KK to 3bets.

As soon as I heard Wheeling, WV I couldn't stop laughing.

" I play at the VFW."

Insert redneck interpretation of the letter "w."

Please God let this guy win.

Re: Who is Darvin Moon?

From Nolan Dalla's tournament report from Monday:

Quote:
An Interview with Darvin Moon



Question: How did you get to the WSOP?

Moon: I won my seat at the casino in Wheeling (WV). We started going out there last year. I came in ninth one time last year. This time, I played three times (trying to qualify for a seat to play in the Main Event). I finished third the first time, and then busted out the next time. The third time, I won my seat.

Question: How long have you been playing poker?

Moon: About three years. I watch poker on TV a lot. And I pay attention to it.

Question: What is your usual poker game?

Moon: there are about 70 of us around who play around. We do benefits at places like the Elks Club, American Legion, and the fire departments. I also play in Wheeling (WV).

Question: You really came out of nowhere to seize the chip lead. How did you do it?

Moon: It’s easy to play when you get hands like I was getting. It’s just unbelievable. It’s like a dream. I got pocket aces and flopped trips, and someone was betting into me. But I had pocket kings one time and the other guy pushed all in over the top of me. I just mucked my hand pre-flop. I mean, he has to have aces. What else can he have? That’s just my style. I play tight. When I get them I bet and when I don’t, I fold.

Question: You must feel like a kid in a candy store here at the WSOP.

Moon: Oh yeah. I’m nervous. I mean, this is my first time in Las Vegas. It was my first time on a big plane.

Question: How did it feel to play on the main ESPN stage under the spotlight of television cameras?

Moon: It didn’t bother me at all. I mean, I am nervous. But I am more nervous out there than I am here. I focus on the cards and I am comfortable playing. I walk down that hall and everybody that’s won and everybody is big time and a name. And they walk right by you and you say, ‘wow, here I am playing with these guys. It’s a dream come true.

Question: Why are you wearing a New Orleans Saints (NFL) cap?

Moon: I like cheering for the underdog. They were underdogs for a long time. But now they are doing good and I am sticking with them. We are located right between Pittsburgh and Baltimore. It is mostly Steeler fans where I live. And I wear this hat to mess with them.

Question: Let’s say you get offered ninth place right now. You can make a deal and you will get $1 million for ninth, plus you get to be part of the November Nine. Would you take the imaginary deal?

Moon: No. No. Ninth place? I got my goals set. It’s not first. But it’s not ninth, either. I’ll be happy. I don’t care if I go out the first hand tomorrow. I’ve had fun. It’s been worth every minute of it. I just like to play and it’s unreal. It’s something I can’t even dream of doing, and here I am.

Re: Who is Darvin Moon?

Likeable fellow. But this interview is a huge mistake. It virtually guarantees he will get run over and it enables the pro´s to greatly narrow down his range in big pots. Ivey will be two seats to his left on day eight, will try to crush him like a freight train and will probably succeed. The seating arrangement is a great opportunity for Ivey to grab the chiplead.

I genuinely like Darvin Moon and would like to see him win. Not even in a "Oh this is good for poker sense"... sure he came across a bit naive in his interview but his heart's in the right place!
