Chris Moorman Wins 21st Triple Crown And $11.36m

Chris Moorman Wins 21st Triple Crown And $11.36mThe career of British pro Chris Moorman keeps on going from strength to strength and while the poker community is awaiting the much-anticipated launch of his book ‘Moorman’s Book of Poker‘ on November 18th, the 29 year-old has also just picked up his 21st Triple Crown. Following his latest record which netted him a little over $30,000, Moorman boosts his online winnings to $11,363,158, to go with the $4,000,371 he has earned in the live arena.
Announcing his latest feat via twitter, Moorman, who is now a huge 10 Triple Crowns ahead of his nearest rival, wrote: “After a 7 week hiatus from online poker due to the WSOP I managed to ship my 21st triple crown last night! #goodtobeback #catchmeifyoucan.”
On his way to victory, Moorman had to first put in a 19-hour grind which began on Sunday with the €10,000 Guaranteed Rebuy on the iPoker Network for $3,600, followed by the Benjamin on Full Tilt for $6,500, and finally the High Roller event held on for $20,000.
“The Winamax High Roller is one of my favorite tourneys,” explained Moorman after the tournament. “I’ve won it four times now, two of which happened to be on a Sunday when it is much bigger.”
Chris Moorman is one of the most popular pros in the business and is noted for his work ethic, fair play and respect towards opponents both on and off the tables. Moorman’s latest Triple Crown success comes after he suffered a disappointing WSOP, not least because he turned up late for the prestigious showcase series. In the end Moorman cashed just once at the $3,000 No Limit Hold’em (Event #39) for $5,145, and commenting on his summer in Vegas, explained:
“I had some visa issues arise the week before it started. That meant that I missed the first half of the WSOP. Once I finally did arrive, I feel like I was too eager to make up for lost time and unfortunately didn’t bring my A-game.”
Nevertheless, Moorman is without a doubt one of the most consistent winners in the game, with almost half his online earnings won on PokerStars. Curiously, though, Moorman is not sponsored by any poker website, not least PokerStars which says it is always looking for new recruits for its Team Online or Team Pro. This somewhat flies in the face of its declaration “that when a potential team member catches the eye of our Team Pro management, someone from PokerStars will contact the player immediately.”
