0,000 in November playing live events in the United States

Chris ‘moorman1’ Moorman is easily the most decorated player in PocketFives history. He’s the only player to earn more than $10,000,000 in lifetime online earnings and has more than $4,000,000 earnings than any other player. He’s won the PocketFives Triple Crown a record 25 times and he’s been the #1-ranked player in the world 13 times.

With all of that success on the virtual felt, do not sleep on Moorman’s track record on the live tournament scene. Over the last three weeks he has managed to add three more cashes to his resume, including the fifth runner-up finish of his career.

The 31-year old 888 poker Ambassador started the month off by being part of a group of 17 players that qualified from The Commerce for December’s SoCal Poker Championship. Moorman outlasted 3,498 other players in the $350 SCPC qualifier at The Commerce Casino to make his way to the SCPC Main Event which takes place at The Bike December 14-15.

He followed that up two weeks later with a second place finish in the2016 LA Poker Open, also at The Commerce. The $1,650 buy-in event had a field of 345 and Moorman was able to outlast all of them except for Scott Stewart, the eventual champion. During heads up play, the final two players agreed to a deal that added $10,000 to second place, allowing Moorman to walk away with $85,510 for his efforts.

As if putting in a dominating performance on the West Coast wasn’t enough, Moorman then hopped a plane and headed to Florida to play the Seminole Rock N Roll Poker Open where he found himself at yet another final table.

Moorman made his way through 72 other players in the $1,100 NLHE Turbo event to reach the final table before eventually finishing fifth for $5,670. The final table included November Niner Jerry Wong as well as Jean Gaspard and eventual champ, Peter Eichhardt.

Counting the $10,800 SCPC seat that he won, Moorman earned $101,980 in the month of November to bring his 2016 live earnings to $423,247. The bulk of that coming from his third place finish in the Estrellas Poker Tour Main Event in Barcelona, Spain in August.

His recent scores pushed his lifetime live earnings to $4,524,426. He’s cashed 53 times with 16 of those being final table appearances. His biggest score came in 2014 when he won the World Poker Tour L.A. Poker Classic for $1,015,460.
