      The 2013 World Series of Poker starts this weekend

      It's been a decade since a 27-year-old accountant from Tennessee with the name Moneymaker ran the tables at the Main Event of the venerable World Series of Poker and helped launch a card room boom that echoes to this day. Back then, Chris Moneymaker said that if he could win, anyone could. Moneymaker doesn't think a novice has a chance anymore to take the top prize. Tournament official Seth Palansky says that top prize could hit $9 million, depending on the number of players who ante up the $10,000 entry fee to play in the marquee event beginning this weekend. More than 65,000 players are signed up, including players from all 50 states and 77 countries.
