Chris Moorman Scoops 13th Career Triple Crown

Chris Moorman Scoops 13th Career Triple CrownTop UK poker pro Chris “Moorman1” Moorman is the world’s biggest online tournament winner with a massive $8,928,132 in earnings since 2006. The Brighton pro also boasts 195 tournament victories, and now an amazing 13th career “Triple Crown,” a record which he managed to secure in the last week.
In order to win a “Triple Crown,” a player must first win a tournament on three different online sites over the period of just seven days. In addition, each tourney must have a prize pool of at least $10k and have a field of not less than 100 players.
The 27 year old British pro last achieved that feat back in 2011, but just over a month into 2013 and  Chris “Moorman1” Moorman has done it once more. Moorman’s first victory came on Saturday, 9th, when he beat a field of 117 players at the $300 Full Tilt Poker $30k Guarantee for $9,828, followed on Monday, 11th, with victory over a field of 152 players at the $100 Party Poker $15k Gtd Speed for $3,939.
At this stage, Chris Moorman provided an update on his Triple Crown quest via Twitter, where he wrote: “Two legs complete on FTP and Party, though, so got until Saturday to finish off the job, shame @PokerStars is rigged.”
Nevertheless, Moorman went on to complete his remarkable hat-trick on Tuesday, 12th, at the $109 PokerStars NL Hold’em [Turbo,2X Chance, $30K Gtd], where he beat out 394 other competitors to claim the $12,016 top prize.
Chris Moorman is now 3 Triple Crowns ahead of nearest rival Hungary’s Belabacsi, who holds the second most with 10. Trailing not far behind on 9 is Mickey “mementmori” Petersen, who also won a Triple Crown recently. As he twittered at the time:
“Small winning session, but more importantly I won a 26$ FTP turbo for my first Triple Crown in years, maybe I’ll catch @Moorman1 one day!”
