Chris Moorman Wins the Sunday Brawl
Despite being arguably the most successful online tournament player of all time, UK pro Chris Moorman has never won a Sunday Major. He has made multiple finals in the Sunday Majors but usually falls just short. That was until the early hours of the morning yesterday when he bagged the Sunday Brawl on Full Tilt Poker for his first Sunday Major. After navigating his way through 9 hours and 2700 players he added another $109,620.00 to his bankroll and got a long standing monkey off his back.
