Chris Moorman Wins Historic 15th Online Poker Triple CrownSeptember 13, 2013 3:02 pm
British poker legend Chris Moorman has made history once more by winning his 15th Triple Crown, the most ever won by any online player. With his latest achievement, the 28 year-old has now put further distance between himself and his nearest rivals, Hungary’s Belabacsi (11), Portugal’s Naza114 (9) and Denmark’s Mickey “mementmori” Petersen (9).
As well as bagging a remarkable 15th Triple Crowns, Chris ‘Moorman1′ Moorman also has the distinction of having earned more money from online tournaments than any other player, now totalling a massive $9,815,796. Furthermore, the Brighton, East Sussex based player boasts a further $2,962,569 from showcasing his poker skills at live tournaments around the globe.
In order to win an online Triple Crown a player must first win three tournaments with prize pools in excess of $10,000 across three different sites within a seven-day period.
This time around, on 6th September Chris Moorman took down PokerStars’ $51 NL Hyper-Turbo $12K Gtd for $3,357, followed by PaddyPower’s $30 re-buy tournament for $3,775, before completing his trio of victories by shipping bwin’s $150 tournament for $4,166.
After winning his historical record, the understated Moorman simply tweeted; “Just won my 15th triple crown :)” and posted a photo of his last tournament’s finishing position.
At the end of last year, Chris Moorman was delighted to pick-up a 12th Triple Crown after what he described as a semi-slump online during the year. Commenting at the time on how to go about winning the prestigious accolade, Moorman, explained:
“A lot of people win tournaments on PokerStars and Full Tilt and then try to win one on one of the Euro sites. I think that’s the wrong approach. Full Tilt, with its smaller field sizes, is probably the easiest to win a tournament on now, so it’s actually much better to win a Euro tournament first rather than last. I try to play most of the sites in every session I have to give myself the best shot at winning one.”
