Poker Pro Chris Moorman Finally Earns Major Title Win

Chris Moorman is a well-known poker pro who has made a living at taking down monster pots at the felt. Despite his skill of the game, Moorman has yet to be able to take down a major tournament win, time after time. However, the pro recently finished first at the 2014 World Poker Tour L.A. Poker Classic to earn his first major title win!

Moorman was able to outlast the field of competitors and take down Glenn Lafaye in heads up play to earn the $1 million first place prize. As nice as $1 million is, the pro was happier to finally break his long streak without earning a major title win.
In the past, Moorman has made the final table of several events but was unable to close the deal. He has came close in WSOP Europe play, the European Poker Tour, the World Series of Poker and even the Aussie Millions.

After earning the win, Moorman now has earned almost $4 million in live tournament game play. He has also done better in online game play, earning around $11 million online. During the latest tournament win, Moorman took the lead during heads up play and never looked back. He took down the win after just a few hands with pocket Aces against Lafaye’s 5-4. Lafaye was on a straight draw but the river and turn were not what he needed giving Moorman the win and his first ever major title.

Final Results:

First Chris Moorman $1,015,460
Second Glenn Lafaye $662,840
Third Michael Rocco $423,440
Fourth Patrick Bruel $332,190
Fifth Josh Neufeld $264,520
Sixth Adam Friedman $200,440

It will now be interesting to see how long it takes for Moorman to win his next major title after finally getting the first one under his belt!
