San Jose, Costa Rica – September 17, 2009 – He’s only 24 years old but in online card rooms across the globe, Chris Moorman is already known as nothing short of a legend. With career winnings totaling over $1.6 million, Moorman is to the online poker world what Doyle Brunson was to live poker decades ago: a young poker superstar who makes tearing up the tables and scooping up winnings look completely effortless. So, when Doyle Brunson announced today that Moorman is to become the fourth member of the poker legend’s elite Brunson 10, it made complete sense.
Stated Doyle Brunson, “Moorman reminds me a lot of me, except for the British accent. He’s a poker natural, a legend in the making, and that’s why I’ve handpicked him to be the next member of The Brunson 10, my new team of elite poker players who truly are young legends of the game.”
As the fourth member of The Brunson 10, Chris Moorman of the United Kingdom is a natural fit. Cardplayer.com currently ranks Chris Moorman as the second best Online Player of the Year. While he trails to the first place player by a handful of Online Player of the Year Points, he has more monetary winnings to his name.
Moorman’s over $1.6 million lifetime winnings include nine career titles and 124 cashes, made up of online poker successes and notable land-based poker achievements, too.
The Brunson 10 originally launched with three members – Alec Torelli, Amit Makhija and Zachary Clark – all of whom began their poker careers online and achieved enormous success at live card rooms as well. Doyle Brunson, poker’s biggest legend, will continue to handpick members for his group of elite poker players who are on board to help bridge the gap between old-school poker and the new world that exists online.
