Chris Moorman Wins His Second WSOP Bracelet and $102,406

Chris Moorman secured the second World Series of Poker bracelet of his illustrious career.

Chris Moorman helped himself to his second World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelet and another $102,406 in winnings. The popular British superstars topped a field of 623 entrants in the $800 NLH 8-Max Turbo Deepstack.

Moorman, one of the most decorated online poker players in history, won his first bracelet at the 2017 WSOP. He came out on top of a 959-strong field in the $3,000 No-Limit Hold’em 6-Handed event and banked $498,682.

More recently, in January 2021, Moorman got his hands on a WSOP Circuit ring. Amazingly, he battled with his wife, Katie “katelin” Lindsay, heads-up for the title! Lindsay did not cash in Moorman’s second bracelet-winning event, but a host of poker stars did.

Moorman Win the Event #29: $800 NLH 8-Max Turbo Deepstack

Place Player Prize
1 Chris “Robotbob47” Moorman $102,406
2 Matthew “BraceletHUNT” Hunt $63,112
3 Patrick “Synesthesia” Eskandar $43,107
4 “bbert29” $29,964
5 Philip “Chairman99” Tom $21,262
6 “JonSnow14” $15,341
7 “cakebot” $11,304
8 Jeremy “g00sebumps” Menard $8,478

Donnell “Spreezy52” Dias was the unfortunate soul who popped the money bubble. Dias was in the big blind, but his stack contained less than a big blind’s worth of chips! Dias’ 4h-4d went up against the 6d-2d of Edwin “YingFlipWell” Roman, which improved to a pair of sixes on the turn.

Players such as the $3,200 High Roller Championship third-place finisher Brett “Metanemesis” Apter cashed. As did Andrew “WATCHGUY42” Lichtenberger, Ryan “bitc0in” Riess, Ali “SasujeUchiha” Imsirovic, and Brian “Pellepelle” Piccioli.

Moorman went into the eight-handed final table with the chip lead, and he rarely loses from that position. Bracelet number two drew closer when Jeremy “g00sebumps” Menard three-bet all-in with Jd-Td, and faced the Ks-Qs of Matthew “BraceletHUNT” Hunt. Menard turned a jack, but Hunt found a king on the river.

The player known as “cakebot” crashed out in seventh before Game of Thrones fan “JonSnow14” busted in sixth. JonSnow14 min-raised to 640,000 with Qc-Qh, Patrick “Synesthesia” Eskandar three-bet all-in for 3,683,346 with Ks-Kc, and JonSnow14 called. The board ran 6d-7s-6h-5d-2c, and JonSnow14 crashed out.

Second Bracelet Is Within Touching Distance

Philip “Chairman99” Tom saw his tournament end in a fifth-place finish worth $21,262. Eskander overbet preflop to 1,160,000 from the small blind, Tom pushed all-in for 1,223,486 in total, and Eskandar called. It was As-Qs for Eskander, Qh-9d for Tom, and a final board of Td-6d-3h-Ah-7h.

Hunt reduced the player count by one when he ousted “bbert29” in fourth place. bbert29 open-shoved for a shade under nine big blinds with Kh-Td. Unfortunately, for bbert29, Hunt woke up with Js-Jc in the small blind and called. By the river, the board read 2d-9h-7h-Ts-6s, and bbert29 bowed out.

Moorman won a massive pot to bust Eskandar and claim an overwhelming chip lead. Moorman raised to 1,125,000 from the small blind with blinds at 250,000/500,000/62,500a. Eskander ripped it in for 9,127,850 from the big blind, and Moorman called. Eskandar flipped over Ah-Js, which was way behind the Ac-Qd of Moorman. Heads-up was set as the board ran 7d-2s-3d-Th-8c.

Heads-up started with Moorman holding 19,705,791 chips and Hunt only 5,214,209. It did not take long to settle the tournament.

Hunt looked down at Ac-8c and called off his 9,215,918 chips when Moorman pushed all-in for 15,554,082. Hunt’s hand was best now because the champion elect held Jd-9d. A nine on the flop of the 9h-3s-Kd-6h-6c board busted Hunt and gifted Moorman his second bracelet.

Almost $25 Million in Poker Tournament Winnings

The man from Brighton, United Kingdom, now has almost $25 million earnings from poker tournaments. More than $18.7 million of that ridiculous sum stems from online poker events.

In addition to two WSOP bracelets, Moorman has a World Poker Tour (WPT) title on his resume. He triumphed in the 2014 WPT L.A. Poker Classic for a cool $1,015,460. That is his second-largest haul, the largest being for $1,068,690 when he finished second to Elio Fox in the 2011 WSOP Europe Main Event.
