Darvin Moon Bio


Darvin Moon may be more comfortable with a chainsaw in his hands and work boots on his feet, but the small-town logger from Oakland, Maryland more than held his own at the 2009 WSOP main event, rising from anonymity to enter the November Nine as the tournament’s chip leader.

Moon won a $130 qualifying tournament from neighboring West Virginia to win his seat in the 2009 main event. He almost took the $10,000 and invested it into his small, three-man logging business that also employed his brother and his brother-in-law. But his brother convinced him to play, and two weeks later, the humble Moon had become a millionaire.
