Chris Moorman has been the all-time leader in online poker tournament winnings for a long time. But he recently outdid even himself by becoming the first player to pass $15 million in online MTT earnings.
The Brit, who currently lives in Las Vegas now, reached this milestone after winning the WSOP.com $25,000 Weekly Sunday event for a $16,929 cash.
Following his victory, Moorman tweeted: “Just won the @WSOPcom $500 6 max to eclipse $15 million in online cashes. Nice way to close out the summer grind @888poker #grindonthemind #6maxlax #888poker.”
From Recreational Player to World Champion
Moorman has won more online poker Triple Crowns than anybody else at 26. And he easily has the most MTT winnings out of any player. All of this is quite impressive when considering where he started.
The 33-year-old recently explained how he didn’t know anything about poker in the beginning. But he continued working on his game and improving to the point where he became a professional.
“I met a couple of players who coached me and gave me tips,” he told Essex Live. “I also read and researched a lot on the game so I could get better.”
Great News for Moorman’s Sponsor
Moorman recently signed a deal with 888poker to serve as one of their ambassadors. And it’s hard finding anybody better to represent your online poker brand than Moorman.
He’s continued his winning ways and has proven himself more accomplished than any other internet tournament player. That said, it’ll be interesting to see what he does from here on out.
Moorman recently took part in the 2018 WSOP and cashed in nine different events. He didn’t have any near wins, but he boosted his live winnings over $5.6 million. The live arena is another place where he continues adding to his tournament earnings total.
