John is truly one of the rising young superstars in poker. A native of Tampa, Florida, John's stock has climbed since the day his mom loaned him $50 to deposit online where he became well known as $JMONEY$. Upon turning 21, after having run up a significant bankroll, John turned his focus to live events where he immediately garnered respect. In his very first live event, the WSOP Harrah's AC Circuit Event, he finished 3rd for over $103,000 and has never looked back.
In just a couple years, John had amassed over $2,000,000 in live poker earnings while also becoming #2 All-Time on the FTOPS Leaderboard and seven figures in earnings online. With over 30 major live tournament cashes under his belt, John began the 2010 WSOP with abundant confidence. In preliminary 2010 WSOP events in PLO, Stud and NLHE John proved his diverse poker skills with deep cashes in 3 events. But the best was yet to come for John.
He put it all together for the 2010 Main Event and landed a spot in the prestigious November 9. Ultimately John finished second earning over $5,500,000 and the respect of all who watched him as his amazing skills and star power were recognized by the entire industry. John was honored to be selected as a Full Tilt Red Pro and a documentary (On the Line: John Racener) is capturing every step of his fascinating life and rise in the poker world.
