Chris Moorman Secures 26th Triple Crown Title

Chris Moorman Secures 26th Triple Crown TitleChris Moorman, the world’s highest earning online tournament player, has just increased his tally of online Triple Crowns to twenty-six, opening up further clear daylight between himself and next nearest competitor Nicolas “PokerKaiser” Fierro on 21. In the process, the 888Poker Ambassador has also boosted his online winnings to a massive $14,360,932.
Top 10 TC Winners:
1: Chris ‘moorman1’ Moorman – 25
2: Nicolas ‘PokerKaiser’ Fierro – 21
3: Peter ‘Belabbacsi’ Traply – 11
4: Kel ‘Aces_up4108’ Beattie – 10
5: Sam ‘TheSquid’ Grafton – 10
6: Mickey ‘mementori’ Petersen – 9

8: Aleks ‘alexd2’ Dimitrov – 7
9: Roman ‘Romeopro’ Romanovskiy – 7
10: Roman ‘MatveichukR’ MatveichukR – 7
In order to win a Triple Crown, a player must win three online tournaments within a week, featuring a field of at least 100 players, and a prize guarantee in excess of $10,000.
The first of Moorman’s wins then came at the partypoker $109 Heavyweight, where he outlasted a field of 422 players to claim a first place prize of $8,060. Moorman followed up by besting a filed of 212 players at the PokerStars $109 Fast Friday for $4,163, before completing his trilogy of victories by defeating a 188 players field at the 888 Poker $55 buy-in Monsoon for $2,590.
As well as being a prolific online player, Moorman has started playing in live tournaments more often, and says that he has set his sights on reproducing his triple crown feat in the live arena. In order to do this he must win a total of three major poker tours throughout his career, which includes the WSOP, WPT, and the rebranded European Poker Tour (EPT) now known as the PokerStars Championship.
So far, just seven players have managed this challenge since 2008, but Moorman is already two-thirds of the way there after capturing a WPT title in 2014, and a WSOP bracelet earlier this year. For his WPT win Moorman outlasted 534 opponents to earn $1,015,460, while his victory over 959 players at the $3,000 No-Limit Hold’em 6-Handed event earned him a further $498,682.
Consequently, Moorman has now amassed $5,173,294 from live tournaments, placing him at number 7 on the UK’s ‘All Time Money List’, with his last cash coming in August at the PokerStars Championship Barcelona.
