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!

Ruben Visser has defeated a tough final table to win the 2013 European Poker Tour London Main Event at the Grosvenor Victoria Casino.
The twenty-four-year old took home his maiden European Poker Tour title as well as the first place prize of £595,000.
The final table was stacked with leading poker professionals like Chris Moorman and Theo Jorgensen and Visser said the standard of play was extremely high.
“The table was really difficult, it was a really stacked final table,” Visser said.
With such a talented group of players luck was always going to play be a factor in the final outcome of the event.
Visser got a bit of luck when the tournament was down to six players that he believed was the pivotal hand of the tournament.
“The key hand for me was when we were six handed I won a big flip against Christopher Frank with my pocket nines beating his Ace-King, which was pretty much all-in for me as well and I was really lucky to double there rather than be completely crippled,” Visser said.
“Later on in the tournament I won a big flip against Theo Jorgensen with my Ace-Eight against his pocket fours when I rivered an ace which sent him home and me to the chip lead.”
Visser has had a great deal of success during his poker career but he was delighted to capture his first major tournament victory.
“This means a lot to me,” the Dutchmen said.
“I have some firsts before but they have always been in small tournaments and in my deep runs in major events before I’ve always fallen a few tables short of the big money.
“I enjoy the recognition and all the fun that goes with winning a tournament like this.
“It’s just awesome to finally win a EPT event I’ve played quite a few times and never gotten this close before and it feels really good.”
The European Poker Tour continues next month in Berlin with the event starting on the 17th of April.
