Chris Moorman Wins PokerStars Sunday 500

Published on May 18th, 2015

Over the weekend, Chris moorman1 Moorman (pictured) continued to dominate the online poker community, winning the PokerStars Sunday 500 outright for $87,000. He Tweeted shortly after the tournament ended, "Oi Oi won the @PokerStars Sunday 500 outright with no deals."

There were exactly 1,000 entrants over the weekend in the Sunday 500 and the top five finishers were all members of the PocketFives community. In fact, PocketFivers took home almost three-quarters of the $500,000 prize pool and UK members, who included Moorman, earned $135,000.

Moorman has an outstanding $12.7 million in career online tournament winnings, the most of anyone on PocketFives by over $3 million, and he just scored his record-extending 25th PocketFives Triple Crown.

His largest online score came in 2011 in the Full Tilt $1K Monday for $235,000. He has won the $1K Monday twice, the Sunday Brawl twice, and his victory in the Sunday 500 marks the first time Moorman has taken down that tournament. Here's how the final table looked:

1. Moorman1: $87,400 (moorman1)

2. hneves182: $63,500 (hneves182)

3. vladulaNko: $47,500 (vladulaNko)

4. EndlessJ: $35,500 (Chipsteela)

5. Sasuke234: $25,000 (Ariados)

6. LearnToFlyy: $20,000

7. fityfmi: $15,000

8. Stammdogg: $10,000 (Stamdogg)

9. mrAndreeew: $5,750 (r4ndomr4gs)

Moorman helped lead a strong showing from PocketFivers over the weekend in major online poker tournaments.
