Chris Moorman joins the Doyle 'Brunson 10' poker elite
He may only be 24 years of age but in internet poker rooms across the globe, Chris Moorman status is already legendary. With career winnings of over $1.6 million, Moorman is to the online poker scene what Doyle ‘Texas Dolly’ Brunson was to the live game decades ago. So, as Doyle Brunson announced over the weekend that Moorman was to become the fourth member of the poker legend’s elite ‘Brunson 10’, it made total sense.
Doyle Brunson said: “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.”
Moorman’s lifetime winnings include nine career titles and 124 cashes, consisting of online poker successes and notable land-based poker achievements.
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. According to a company statement, Brunson will continue to “handpick members for his group of elite poker players to help bridge the gap between old-school poker and the new world that exists online”.
