Legend Roger Moore Dead Aged 73

Roger Moore is dead and with him passes a true legend of poker. The man with the famous name never missed a World Series of Poker since 1974 and captured a prestigious gold bracelet in 1994 at the $5,000 Seven Card Stud event.
That win earned him a $144,000 prize and throughout his career he went on to cash a total of 15 times in Las Vegas for $372,698, including three cashes in the $10,000 championship event.
Roger Moore was eventually inducted in the Poker Hall Of Fame in 1997 for his success in the game and, in addition to being a professional poker player, he ran a successful business as owner of the Pine Bluff Golf Course and Country Club in Eastman, Georgia.
However, life was not always so comfortable for the son of a sharecropper who left school before he was 14, before eventually entering military service. After his stint in the army, Roger Moore joined the civil service, playing poker as a hobby in his spare time before realising he had a unique talent for the game.
In 1968, he moved to Las Vegas, Nevada, to embark on his new career as a poker pro and soon gained a reputation as a fearsome and formidable competitor playing alongside the best players in the world. Amongst his peers were fellow Hall of Famers Johnny Moss (1979), Puggy Pearson (1987), Doyle Brunson (1988), Jack Straus (1988), Chip Reese (1991), Amarillo Slim (1992) and Jack Keller (1993). In 1997, Roger Moore then, too, was honoured with a place in the Hall Of Fame.
Following the sad news of his passing on October 22nd aged 73, Doyle Brunson tweeted:
“Yes, unfortunatly it is a verified fact. Roger Moore is dead…one of the most consistent winners in poker I’ve ever seen.”
