Chris moorman1Moorman (pictured) did it again. He has racked up not one, not two, but three PocketFives Online Poker Triple Crowns in October alone, raising his total to a record-setting 18. The question is: will we be writing about a fourth Triple Crown before Halloween?
On October 13, Moorman hit it big, winning the Full Tilt Poker Sunday Brawl for $48,000 and 493 PLB Points. Plus, the Sunday Major marked the last leg of his 17th Triple Crown. He defeated over 800 opponents in the Brawl, leading the way as PocketFivers claimed 42% of the cashing positions and 53% of the prize pool of nearly a quarter of a million dollars.
Also on October 13, he started his 18th Triple Crown run by taking down the Full Tilt Poker T-Rex for $28,000 and 351 PLB Points. The $150 buy-in tournament attracted a field of 554 runners and six out of its top seven finishers were members of PocketFives. Accordingly, the community laid claim to 79% of the prize pool.
On the same day, Moorman stormed through the field of the bwin $100 Cubed, which carried a $60,000 guarantee. Moorman’s win was worth $13,000 and another 244 PLB Points. That tournament fell short of its guarantee and PocketFivers received nearly 40% of the prize money up for grabs. Moorman was one of five members of the top 100 in our Rankings to survive the money bubble. The win also meant that he nearly won two Triple Crowns on the same day.
Six days later, Moorman’s 18th Triple Crown quest was over. The heroics happened on PokerStars, the world’s largest online poker site, where he took down a $55 No Limit Hold’emtournament for $2,800 and 120 PLB Points. That event sported a prize pool of $14,500 and attracted a field of nearly 300 entrants. PocketFivers finished in nearly two-thirds of the in the money positions.
He Tweeted in victory, “Good start to the weekend grind… I just shipped my 18th Triple Crown #ezgame.”
Moorman is the sole PocketFives member with more than $10 million in tracked online MTT scoresand is a full $3.3 million ahead of the next closest player. He is lapping the field in Triple Crowns won with 18, a full seven more than the next closest person. The talented Brit is #2 in the PocketFives Rankings and could ascend to the #1 spot this week when the leaderboard is recalculated on Wednesday.
Congrats to Moorman on his 18th online poker Triple Crown, his third award this month.
