Chris Moorman is one of the most successful online poker players in the United Kingdom, and he proved his skill once again by landing more than a quarter of a million to his resume by winning the High Roller MILLION$.
A total of 491 players managed to make it past Day 1 of the event on GGPoker, and the top 350 had an opportunity to receive a share of the prize. Some of the popular players who managed to make it to the money list were Bryan Paris, Pascal Hartmann, Niklas Astedt, Daniel Dvoress, Andras Nemeth, Andrey Pateychuk, and others.
Still, the player who managed to surpass them all and win the tournament was Moorman, who now has more than $16.7 million in earnings.
The Final Table Overview
All nine finalists who made it to the last part of the event secured at least $14,289. However, that prize went to the player who hit the rail first. In this case, it was a Canadian player who uses an online moniker, “cbkme.”
They were followed by a player from Brazil, who ended up in eighth place and is nicknamed “guysneves.” The Brazilian managed to earn a total of $20,854 for their effort.
Seventh place was reserved for a Polish player named “KennyKaarten,” who earned a total of $30,435, while Seth Davies ended up sixth with $44,418 in his pocket.
“Oye Como Va” is a player from India who managed to end up fifth and earned $65,825. After that, it was time for the UK’s “shreeOHM” to hit the rail, winning a hefty prize of $94,608.
The last player to hit the rail before the heads-up portion was “donkey” from Brazil, who earned a total of $138,703.
The final opponent that Moorman had to face was “SolverJail” from Brazil. The two of them were pretty equal, so they struck a deal at one point, with “SolverJail” winning $243,796 against Moorman’s $251,828.
Still, it was Moorman who lifted the trophy in the end, recording another huge victory in his career.
