Poker Pro Chris Moorman Joins Team888

One of Britain’s best poker players, Chris Moorman, has just been signed onto Team 888poker, becoming another ambassador for the online poker site. He will be representing the site at live and online events, with the 2016 World Series of Poker being the first on their list. He is the newest addition to a team of great players, including Dominik Nitsche that was signed last year, as well as Kara Scott and Sofia Lövgren.

Moorman Proves His Poker Worthiness

The 888poker management team didn’t just pull a random name out of a hat, but rather Moorman showed his excellent capacity as a player. He recently surpassed $13 million in career online tournament earnings as he won the 888 Sunday Challenge and walked away with $18,840. He has done very well for himself,

  • 5th in the January 12, 2014 WHALE for $14,040
  • 2nd in the January 11, 2015 $50,000 TURBO Mega Deep for $11,328.30
  • 2nd in the August 9, 2015 $40,000 TURBO Mega Deep for $7,710

He was very excited to become a part of Team888 and join other famous players,

“888 is doing big things and really is working hard to expand their reach in poker. Things like sponsoring the WSOP and the Super High Roller Bowl have shown they are committed to their growth of the brand, and I can’t wait to see what they have coming up in the future. They are all great players and ambassadors of the game. Also, they all gave me such a warm welcome to the team, and I am excited to represent the site alongside them. Dominik is one of the best players in the world; to have won three bracelets at his age is an incredible achievement. I’ve known Kara for a long time, and she does an incredible job presenting and is a great poker player as well.”

Advancing Towards the Future

In the past, Moorman went by the online handle “WhatWudJSay”, but with the recent acquisition, he will now be playing with the screen name “888moorman.” His online winnings are not the only aspect that catches attention, as he has also won $4.1 million in live tournaments. Earning $1,068,690 of that when he came in second-place in the 2011 WSOP Europe Main Event.

He is also releasing his first book, Moorman’s Book of Poker, and is currently playing in the 2016 WSOP taking place in Las Vegas. His future is looking better, as he takes it one tournament at a time,

“My plans for this summer are to win a bracelet. In all seriousness, though, something like that you can’t predict. I just want to play my absolute best, and hopefully, good things will happen. I will be in most of the No Limit events and some of the PLO as well.”

Moorman should have a great career ahead of him, and with Team 888poker backing him up, we will see his name much more.
