Chris Moorman Win Passes $15 Million Total Online Cashes
Less than a year after winning a record 26th Online Triple Crown, Chris Moorman set a new landmark in lifetime online tournament cashes at $15 million.
Moorman’s landmark win was the WSOP.com $25,000 Weekly Sunday. He won a “modest” $16,929, but it was enough to push him over the $15 million mark. He has since won an additional $4,345 to push his total online cashes to $15,021,323.
Moorman endured a field of 72 entrants and 53 rebuys to become the first player to hit $15 million. The event lasted a little under 5 hours before Moorman managed to claim victory. The win is his third individual online win since early June. The events he won were the WSOP.com $15,000 Weekly Friday and America’s Cardroom $15,000 DTD – Turbo Mega Stack.
Moorman Finds Success Offline Too
In July alone, Moorman led Team UK to victory in the 888poker 8-Team Competition (which had 7 teams). He, Niall Farrell, and Billy Chattaway managed to tally up 400 points during the competition, with Moorman being the chip leader of surviving players on days 3 and 4 of the competition for massive bonuses. Between his finishes on days 3 and 4 alone, Team UK would have won the competition by 50 points.
Beyond just playing, Moorman signed on to be an official ambassador of 888poker back in June. He joined Kara Scott and Denilson as ambassadors for the online poker giant. When Moorman signed, he had already set the record for top earning online poker player of all time (which he set back in February).
Other names involved at the WSOP.com final table were two-time WSOP bracelet winner Scott Clements (third, $7,005), Jed Hoffman (fourth, $5,838), and Justin Lapka (sixth, $4,028). Rounding out the podium was player “Chipman1728” who took home $9,924.
