Following a victory for $9,500 in a $215 buy-in event at PartyPoker last Saturday, Online Poker Professional Chris Moorman surpassed the $10 million in lifetime career online earnings.
Not only the first player to earn more than eight, Moorman appears to be continually setting a new huge benchmark, as no other player has earned more than $7.5 million, according to PocketFives.
After previously telling pokernews.com he wanted to surpass the $10 million with a victory in the World Championship of Online Poker recently, Moorman is of course still greatly satisfied with the accomplishment nevertheless, as he discussed on the weekend post-tournament.
“I’m glad to make the mark in style with a victory taking me over the line rather than a bunch of min cashes” Moorman said.
“Hopefully I can make a run at the World Championship of Online Poker Main Event tomorrow and get myself well on the way to the next 10 million”.
The Hold’em Main Event began yesterday and offers the winner a guaranteed $1.25M; an ideal pot to push Moorman’s record further out of reach of his competitors.
Further to this event, the WCOOP has and continues to feature 65 other events sharing a prize pool of more than $40 million guaranteed. The best thing about this tournament is literally any poker player can qualify, and from as little as $1!
