Moorman’s biography is full of achievements and winnings in the poker world. His interest in poker started when he was a second year student at the University of Exess. Chris found out about a free online weekly poker tournament and decided to check it out. He immediately fell in love with the game even though he earned only $70 in the freeroll. He spent hours learning and reading about poker and improving his skills. It was worth it.
Today, Chris Moorman is ranked the #1 online player in the world and is the leader in career online poker tournament earnings. His winnings are nearing the $12 million mark.
Moorman proved himself on the live circuit as well, where he has earned a total of $4 million. On January 23, 2011, he was up against David Gore, who won the 2011 Aussie Millions Main Event. Moorman finished the tournament in 7th place, claiming $175,000.
After a while, at the WSOP Europe Main Event in Cannes, he took 2nd place and claimed a prize of $1,068,690.
In 2011, he almost won The WSOP Player of the Year title, but Ben Lamb beat him to it.
In 2013, Chris got an invitation to play in the NBC Heads up Championship in Las Vegas. He lost to Daniel Cates in the 32nd round.
An absolute destroyer of online poker opponents, Moorman is also a winner of four consecutive British Poker awards - Best online player for 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013.
Even though he is young, Chris has an incredible work ethic. He doesn’t drink or smoke during poker tournaments and is never late to the events. He has appeared on the covers of several poker magazines and is a very likable person. In 2014, the online poker star got engaged to his girlfriend, Katie Lindsay.
