Chris Moorman Enjoys Super Sunday at GGPoker
Table Of Contents
Chris Moorman won the second World Series of Poker bracelet of his career last week when he triumphed in the $800 NLH 8-Max Turbo at WSOP.com in the United States. it appears the man from Essex is hungry for more poker gold.
Some 326 of the 2,696 entrants made it through the Flip Stage of this event, each of them in the money places as a result. The Go Stage plays out like a traditional tournament, which is more to Moorman’s obvious strengths. Moorman managed to navigate his way to the nine-handed final table, doing so with enough chips for fifth-place.
Wing Tat Yeung, Markus Prinz, and Quentin Roussey were the first three players eliminated from the bracelet-awarding event’s final table. Georgios Sotiropoulos sent all three to the showers.
Moorman then sent two players to the rail during the same hand. Moorman’s ace-king prevailed against the suited seven-five of Erwann Pecheux and the suited ace-ten of Wiktor Malinowski, to reduce the play count by too, and to boost his own stack to approximately 14 big blinds.
Disaster then stuck for Moorman. Sotiropoulos shoved on him from the small blind with what turned out to be jack-eight, and Moorman called off his 10 big blinds with king-queen of hearts. Sotiropoulos turned an eight, and improved to a straight when a queen landed on the river. Moorman walked away with $53,897.
Sotiropolous’ incredible run continued when his queen-jack prevailed against Michiel “Easterdamnz” Van Elsacker’s ace-ten, before his ace-six held against Yen-Linag Yeo’s king-ten to secure the title.

After such luminaries as Jeffrey “jumping gn” Reardon, Martin “marlin555” Raus, Alessandro Giannelli, and Stevan Chew crashed and burned, Moorman found himself heads-up against “T-CHAK” of China. The popular Brit defeated his final opponent to lay claim to the $17,260 top prize, resigning the Chinese grinder to a $12,943 consolation prize.
