    Johnny Moss Epic Heads-Up Marathon with Nick Greek - Poker

    History had it that in the year 1949, Johnny Moss took up Nick the Greek in a five months long heads-up poker marathon.

    The game was set up by the mob boss, Benny Binion. Moss ended up winning between $2 and $4 million USD at the end of the game. When the game ended, Nick the Greek reportedly made a statement that had become one of the most popular poker quotes in history. The statement – “Mr. Moss, I have to let you go.”

    The game between Moss and Nick is often said to be the inspiration that birthed the World Series of Poker. The game also became the basis for the book, The Biggest Game in Town, authored by Al Alvarez. The story that emanated from the game also became the best poker story ever told in the world of poker.
