Moorman collected $398,393 in August when he finished second to Ravid “jerbi9999” Garbi in the $5,000 No Limit Hold’em 6-handed Championship. That was Moorman’s largest online score.
His second-largest came on November 29 thanks to him outlasting 490-opponents in the High Roller MILLION$. Moorman’s prize would have been more substantial had he not struck a deal with “SolverJail” when heads-up. The deal resulted in Moorman securing a $251,828 prize with the runner-up walking away with $243,769.
Moorman’s fellow Brit “shreeOHM” finished fourth for $94,608, the tournament’s final five-figure prize.
