Moorman Makes History

Moorman Makes History

Monday, 30 September 2013

We recently told you that the UK's Chris Moorman was just a few thousand dollars away from setting new highs in the online poker world and after a win in PartyPoker's weekly $215 tournament. After grinding his way past a plethora of his virtual peers, Chris was able to do what his does best and seal another victory and, importantly, $9,500.

That modest bounty (by Chris's standards) was enough to push him over the $10 million mark according numbers crunched by and makes him the top online tournament earner in the world. Surpassing all who've played the game before him, Chris has now banked an incredible $10,019,798 in MTT winnings since taking up the game just after the Moneymaker boom.

After reaching the landmark figure the pioneering pro took to Twitter to announce the news, writing: "Just hit the $10 million landmark with a win in the Party Poker $215 for $9500. Morale so high going into WCOOP Main Sunday."

Unfortunately, despite his morale being at an all-time high, Chris wasn't able to pull off another impressive feat in this year's final WCOOP events, eventually busting short of the money.

With Chris now riding a wave of positive variance, he's also the proud owner of a new interactive website:
Consisting of a blog and various other insights into Chris's life, the site should become a popular portal for aspiring grinders looking to emulate the world's top online MTT player.
