Chris Moorman Pads His Bankroll With $55,000

Chris Moorman

Chris Moorman was one of the United Kingdom’s biggest winners this weekend thanks to a near-miss in one of the partypoker Caribbean Poker Party events on November 22.

Moorman fell at the final hurdle of the CPP #07 The Warm Up, losing out on the title to Jan-Eric Schwippert. The popular pro saw a combined prize worth $55,171 made up of a $44,007 main prize pool prize and $11,164 worth of bounties.

Christopher Brammer finished 11th in the same tournament and secured an $8,321 payout.

Four players from the United Kingdom navigated their way to the final table of the $2,600 High Roller Big Game at partypoker. Only 20 of the 139-entrants received a slice of the $344,250 prize pool and Roberto Romanello was one of them, finishing in 12th for $7,745.

Steve Watts won the same amount when he busted in 11th place, leaving Sam Grafton and Luke Reeves to fly the Union Jack at the final table. Grafton fell in sixth for $16,351 with Reeves crashing out in third for a $40,731 addition to his bankroll.

Day 1B of the CPP Online Main Event saw the 547 entrants whittled to a more manageable 86. A handful of our players made it safely through to Day 2 including Gavin Cochrane (9,088,435), Jesse Wigan (6,145,076), Jonathan Proudfoot (6,053,937), Matthew Kirwan-Shannon (5,924,698), Martin Brinkmann (5,732,826), Scott Margereson (5,033,931), Brandon Sheils (4,890,273), Ludovic Geilich (3,431,076), and James Atkin (3,149,189).

Two British Winners at 888poker

Both of 888poker’s biggest Sunday tournaments were won by players who call the UK home.

“Furzy123” came out on top in the $100,000 Sunday Mega Deep, a $215 tournament that overlaid once again, for the ninth or tenth consecutive week, which makes this tournament superb value.

The champion got their hands on $18,350 wile “TiltJuice101” also reached the final table but their time there was short-lived as they fell in ninth for $1,300.

Two Brits reached the nine-handed final of the $25,000 Sunday Challenge. “oldskool555” fell in fourth for a combined prize worth $2,041 with bounties included. Jonathan “jgjg3000” Gill was the last man standing and he banked $5,575 in total.
