Chris Moorman is 26 years of age and holds an economics degree from Essex University, although his true life major is poker. Moorman is a bright, young superstar who is regularly considered one of the top No-Limit Hold'em players in the game today.
Moorman holds millions in online poker winnings, but we'll be focusing on the live events here. Coming into this final table, Moorman holds over $1.3 million in live tournament earnings with the bulk of that coming this year. Back in January, Moorman placed seventh in the Aussie Millions Main Event for A$175,000. After that, he cashed five times at the WSOP including two final tables in six-handed events.
Moorman finished third in the $2,500 No-Limit Hold'em Six-Handed event and then second in the $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Six-Handed Championship. Those finishes earned Moorman $271,800 and $716,282, respectively.
Moorman also sits right behind Shawn Buchanan on the WSOP Player of the Year leaderboard. He'll need to win the event in order to pass Phil Hellmuth to take over the number one spot.
