#BeastMode: Moorman1 Wins Triple Crown #25

Published on May 15th, 2015

Seriously? This author came home from a delicious Mexican lunch only to see an e-mail from the agent of Chris Moorman1 Moorman (pictured) saying he had won his 25th PocketFives Triple Crown. I think it's safe to say that Moorman is not human.

His latest Triple Crown started on May 8 with a win in an iPOPS event on Everest Poker. The tournament was a $77 Cubed event that drew 521 players and Moorman, playing under the handle RocketMonk, took it down for $15,000. UK PocketFivers, including Moorman, finished in four of the top seven spots and took home 87% of the prize pool.

One day later, Moorman was back at it, this time winning the 888 Poker Crocodile for $6,300. The 888 tournament had 153 players and Moorman, playing under the user name WhatWudJSay, was one of two PocketFivers at the final table.

Moorman wrapped up his 25th PocketFives Triple Crown with a win in the PokerStars $109 No Limit Hold'em Turbo on Friday morning for $2,800. The tournament had a field of 115 and, perhaps more important than Moorman's top prize was Triple Crown #25, his second of 2015. The next closest member of PocketFives has 16 Triple Crowns.

Moorman told PocketFives on Friday moments after winning the PokerStars tournament, "I felt like this Triple Crown was going to be straightforward because I had six days to win the final leg on Full Tilt, PartyPoker, or PokerStars and I was going to be playing a lot of volume with SCOOP, but then it seemed like it wasn't going to happen after many near-misses. It's nice to get off the mark for 2015. Even with everything going on in my life, this is still an important goal to me to continue winning more Triple Crowns."

Congrats to Moorman on his latest claim to fame!

  1. Congrats Chris!

  2. I don't think he's inhuman at all - seems like a nice guy!

  3. What a beast! The way he's managed to stay ahead of the game for all these years is absolutely incredible

  4. King!

  5. Dreamy!

  6. I vote we change the name of the "Triple Crown" to the "Moorman". Yup...and he's 9 Moormans ahead of his closest competitor. One day, when internet poker truly comes back to America...maybe I can win a Moorman too.

  7. someone has to be above the mean....

  8. keep calm & buy his book! +1 congrats!
