This was first reported by Todd Anderson on Twitter (@PokerNight_Todd).


"The best person I ever met through poker is Darvin Moon. A man of integrity and honor. And quite possibly the most interesting person I’ve ever known. Truly. He and his wife Wendy became good friends. Sadly, Darvin succumbed to complications from surgery today. He’ll be missed."

For those who may not be familiar, Darvin Moon was the "every man", as coined by commentators who finished 2nd in the 2009 World Series of Poker Main Event to Joe Cada. He was a self-employed man from Oakland, Maryland who was the story of the Main Event. He famously busted Phil Ivey when he flopped a Q on the flop against Ivey's AK.

You can find it here in this clip, starting at about the 4 minute mark.


Rest in Peace Darvin.

Sad to hear this.

He seemed like a nice man from what I've seen of him on video.
