Being a tournament player myself, I know first-hand how difficult it is to go all the way and win an online poker tournament. I can’t fathom how hard it must be to win three tournaments in a seven-day period on three different sites, which is what players must do to be awarded a PocketFives.com Triple Crown. And my head explodes at the thought of someone managing to win a Triple Crown not once, not twice but a ridiculous 20 times!
“Impossible!” you shout at your screens as you try to get your head around how a mere human could win 20 Triple Crowns – winning 60 tournaments is crazy enough, no? – but I tell you that someone has won 20 Triple Crowns and, of course, that someone is Chris Moorman.
Just finished my 18 hour grind today with a win in the Party Major to complete my 20th triple Crown #winningFollow @Moorman1
Moorman completed his 20th Triple Crown when he won the partypoker $200K Guaranteed Sunday for $27,400 only one day after binking the Mount Rushmore at Full Tilt Poker ($6,400) and the $22 Cubed at PokerStars ($6,212).
In the days running up to his triple ownage, Moorman also won the PokerStars.fr Storm ($4,338), the Winamax High Roller ($8,912) and PokerStars.fr The Big €100! To say Moorman is ridiculous is the understatement of the decade!
Add up all of Moorman’s cashes and he now has over $10.7 million in online tournament winnings and almost $3 million more from his live poker escapades. To put Moorman’s achievements into perspective, his nearest rival in terms of Triple Crowns won trails Moorman by nine and the next winningest online tournament player needs to win $3.6 million without Moorman adding to his own total!
Congratulations Mr Moorman, long may you continue to prove that poker is indeed a skill game, either that or that it is possible to sell your soul to the devil!
