Online MTT wizard Chris “Moorman1” Moorman finally pulled down his first FTOPS title earlier today on Full Tilt Poker.

Moorman outlasted a field of 399 players to win Event 3 $216 PLO Rush for $21,250 in FTOPS XXII.

Despite Moorman’s considerable online accolades -- he has over $9 million in lifetime online MTT winnings and has an online Triple Crown -- this was his first FTOPS victory.

After winning Moorman credited Phil Galfond’s series of PLO videos for giving him an edge in the tournament.

Full Tilt Poker actually provided a slight overlay as the 399 entrants only brought the overall prizepool up to $79,800. There was an $85,000 guarantee in the tournament.

Fellow online grinders Mike “Timex” McDonald and Chris “Getting Daize” Oliver both made the money in the tournament.

Here’s a complete look at the final table payouts for Event 3 (plus a look at the first two events of FTOPS XXII):
