Chris Moorman has been previously referred to as a "Poker Machine" by us and the reasons for the title continue to stack up. Not only is Moorman the biggest winner in the history of online poker tournaments — over $11 million to date — he just topped his own Triple Crown record by winning number 21.
The Triple Crown is an award given by PocketFives. Any player that can put together wins in three major tournaments over a seven day period on three different sites steps into the esteemed group of Triple Crown winners.
Moorman may have been too busy to devote much time to online poker over the last six months with the WSOP festival in Las Vegas taking up part of his time, his engagement to Katie Lindsay, and his new book Moorman's Book of Poker that's expected to hit the shelves late this fall. But all that changed when he buckled up and ran his game through the €10,000 Guaranteed Rebuy on the iPoker Network - $3,600; the Benjamin on Full Tilt - $6,500; and the High Roller event on Winamax.fr - $20,000 where his player ID is "PaulFoltyn".
Moorman is the only poker player to win over $10,000,000 in poker tournaments online.
Moorman recently gave an interview with PocketFives to talk about the 2014 World Series of Poker (WSOP) and his first poker strategy book that was announced in January this year.
With only one in-the-money finish at this year's WSOP, Moorman said it was "a lack of preparation" coupled with bureaucratic issues and he felt it affected his game.
"I had some visa issues arise the week before it started," Moorman said. "That meant that I missed the first half of the WSOP. Once I finally did arrive, I feel like I was too eager to make up for lost time and unfortunately didn't bring my A-game."
On the subject of his book, he's pleased to have written it and enjoyed the challenge and effort that went into it. You didn't know a Poker Machine could write? Settle in and get ready to read it to improve your game.
"Now that it's essentially finished, I'm really glad I decided to do it," Moorman said. "At first, it seemed like it was going to be a tough task to write. In all, I've written over 50,000 words, which is not a small task, but I've really enjoyed putting it together."
The book is expected to be available November 18th, 2014, in the United States and will arrive in Europe a month later. Moorman's co-author Byron Jacobs provided the play of 100 tournament hand histories which are analyzed in the book.
"I thought it would be interesting to look at hands and let people see it from two different perspectives," Moorman said in a PokerNews.com-exclusive interview published earlier this year. "I’ve been working so hard on my game for the last seven to eight years and am ready to share what I have learned with other hard-working grinders that just need a little help to keep moving forward. There is no other book like this out there, and it just seemed like a perfect fit for me"
