Chris Moorman took 2nd place in WSOP Online event
Chris Moorman ranks among the top 3 most successful online poker players. Throughout his career, the guy has recorded more than 11 thousand cashes in various tournaments and won a total of over $16.5 million.
This year’s WSOP is taking place online at GGPoker. Moorman and his wife have rented a house in Mexico and are competing to see who will make more cashes at the WSOP Online. So far, Chris is in the lead.
Earlier in the day, he added another large amount of money to his total poker earnings. Moorman took part in the $5 000 No-Limit Hold'em 6-Handed Championship at WSOP Online and was eager to win it. Unfortunately, he didn't manage to emerge victorious in that event.
The bracelet event collected 672 entries that formed a prize pool of $3 192 000. In general, 98 players guaranteed themselves a minimum payout of $10 721, while the best prizes went to the strongest participants.
Daniel Negreanu got another ITM in this tournament: 39th place and $14 599 in prize money. For now, Daniel has made 15 cashes during the WSOP Online 2020, but these winnings are rather marginal. Besides, he hasn’t yet reached a single final table of this series.
Following Negreanu, such well-known poker professionals, as Sean Winter (34th place and $14 599), Elio Fox (21st place and $17 837), Sergi Reixach (17th place and $24 335), Luke Schwartz (15th place and $24 335) also left the tournament.
The PartyPoker Team Pro Ludovic Geilich, just as Moornam, managed to make it to the final table. However, Ludovic results were less impressive: he busted in 5th place, earning $157 000.
The final brought us a heads-up battle between Ravid Garbi from Israel and the experienced poker pro Chris Moorman. It may well be that Ravid used Moorman’s books to study poker, and then fought him at a prestigious tournament to gain a gold bracelet.
Ravid eventually won that battle and bagged his first career WSOP bracelet. In addition to the trophy, he also received large prize money ($531 000), which is his current best result. Given that Ravid has won a total of $29 000 in poker events, the amount of half a million dollars is a colossal success for him.
Chris Moorman again came close to winning the gold bracelet but stopped a short step away from achieving his goal. As a runner-up, he took an impressive payout of $398 000.
