Chris Moorman Going All Out For WSOP Glory

UK pro Chris Moorman is the most successful online tournament player in the world, having amassed $13,384,183 in winnings throughout his career, as well as an incredible 25 PocketFives Triple Crowns. The 30 year-old has even managed to notch up a further $4,129,112 on the live circuit, including capturing a coveted WPT title in 2014 at the $10k LA Poker Classic for $1,015,460.
In 2011, however, Moorman recorded his biggest ever live score after finishing runner-up to Elio Fox at the WSOP Europe Main Event for €800,000 ($1,068,690). Winning a gold WSOP bracelet would surely have meant the world to a player who already holds a number of poker records, but despite making 4 final tables, and securing two runner-up finishes, worth a total of $2,403,469, the English pro still finds himself on the “Best Player Without a WSOP Bracelet” list.
In fact, Moorman’s desire to capture a bracelet is so high that the no-limit hold’em specialist is currently contemplating taking up mixed games in order to increase his chances of success. Talking to PokerNews recently, Moorman explained:
“This is maybe my 10th or 11th World Series and pretty much every year I’ve had a chance, which is quite hard to do in no-limit hold’em, because the fields are so big. I’m starting to think that if it doesn’t happen over the next couple of years I’ll start playing the mixed games. I don’t really want to, but I might have to do it, because I’ll only have to beat 100 or 120 players in those things instead of thousand.”
As well as for his own personal accomplishments, Moorman has an extra incentive to capture a WSOP bracelet. After all, winning a bracelet would reflect well on his newly sponsored site of 888poker, which also has 3-times bracelet winner Dominik Nitsche amongst its pro roster. In the meantime, Moorman has cashed twice at this year’s WSOP, finishing the $565 No Limit Hold’em Colossus II in 1,277th for $1,491, and finishing the $1,500 No Limit Hold’em Summer Solstice in 13th for $19,943. With around half the events still yet to play, it would take a brave person to bet against Moorman realizing his goal this summer in Vegas.
