Chris Moorman is the biggest winner in the history of online poker tournaments, and it’s not close. With over $14 million in online cashes, Moorman has nearly 30% more earnings than the next four closest players, all of which have also been around for a long time.
The story of Moorman is one of highs and lows, as those cashes aren’t what they’re all propped up to be. After arguably one of his best years ever in 2011, he found himself near broke after the 2012 World Series of Poker. The reason? Staking more than 30 players in live and online tournaments, decimating his bankroll in just a few months time.
On this podcast Moorman opens up about his staking operation, the mismanagement of his money and his ultimate climb back up to the top, culminating in winning the World Poker Tour LAPC event for more than a million dollars, and the $3,000 6-Max at the World Series of Poker in June of 2017.
