According to reports, Chris “moorman1” Moorman made history as the first player to break the eight-figure barrier in online tournament winnings. He won a $215 buy-in event on partypoker this past Saturday, earning $9,500 and surpassing $10 million in lifetime career online earnings.
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 on Saturday.
We often hear about live tournament lifetime achievements because they are more easily tracked alongside large live tournament events, but when it comes to online poker where often the playing fields are a lot larger, it is equally impressive to see such large winnings.
Moorman clearly holds the title but there are about 10 other pros reported to be in the $6-7 million lifetime online tournament winnings.
Moorman, who is currently in Mexico is looking forward to working his way up to the $20 million mark.
