Chris Moorman Wins 24th Triple Crown

Chris Moorman

The online poker legend that is Chris “moorman1” Moorman helped himself to yet another Triple Crown on December 1, extending his own seemingly breakable record of 24.

Our friends at award the coveted Triple Crown to any player who manages to win three qualifying tournaments on three different sites within a seven-day period. For a tournament to qualify for the Triple Crown it must have a prize pool of at least $10,000 and have no less than 100 entrants. As you can see, winning a single Triple Crown is impressive enough, never mind repeating the feat another 23 times.

Moorman's last trio of victories started on November 25 when he topped a field if 163 players in The Benjamin at Full Tilt, a result that banked Moorman $4,401.00.

Five days later, Moorman added $5,840.02 to his bankroll when he won the €25,000 Sunday Warm Up at William Hill and the quest for another Triple Crown was on.

On the same night that Moorman won the tournament at William Hill, he finished second twice at PokerStars, narrowly missing out on completing it then. Moorman finished as runner-up in The Biggest $27.50 for $7,427.49 and then second in the $215 NL Hold'em Turbo for an additional $5,056.00.

Then on Monday, the reigning World Poker Tour L.A. Poker Classic champion finished third in the $320 buy-in NL Hold'em 6-max before taking down a $215 NL Hold'em Turbo on the same night for $6,364 and his 24th Triple Crown.

Moorman now has 13 more Triple Crowns than his nearest rival, Peter “Belabacsi” Traply of Hungary. Other notables with several Triple Crowns to their name include Nicolas “PokerKaiser” Fierro (10), Kelvin “aces_up4108” Beattie (9), Team PokerStars Online's Mickey “mementmori” Petersen (9), and the popular UK grinder Sam “TheSquid” Grafton (8).

A huge congratulations to Chris Moorman on extended his already remarkable record and if you ever needed an excuse to buy Moorman's Book of Poker this might be it.
