Online Icon Chris Moorman Joins 888poker; Twitch Stream Ahead


When you're the #1 all-time winner in online tournament poker, it's incongruous for you to not have a full-time sponsor.

Consider that situation now rightly rectified for British online legend Chris Moorman.

Fast-growing 888poker announced today that has signed Moorman as a member of its pro team. Coming one year to the day after 888poker signed Dominik Nitsche, Moorman says the fit is a natural one on a team that already includes Nitsche, Kara Scott and Sofia Lovgren:

"They are all great players and ambassadors of the game," says Moorman. "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."

With over $13m in career online tournament earnings Moorman has put in his time on the virtual felt, obviously, but he has no plans for stopping.

Equally impressive live.

Once the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas, where he'll be playing all summer, is over he'll be back grinding the big Sunday 888 tourneys under the screen name "888moorman."

Expect to see him regularly in the 888 Sunday Challenge, the Whale and his favorite event, the Crocodile. He'll also of course be front and center during 888poker's signature Super XL Series.

"I really like the variety of buy-ins and different formats of no limit tournaments," he explains. "My favorite one was the $2,000 High Roller, which had a great structure and a large field."

"888poker has a good amount of play at the final tables, which is important when there are big money jumps on the line," he adds.

"There are a good variety of buy-ins and field sizes are great as well. I think the player pool appreciates the well-structured tournaments on 888poker."

In September he'll play his first 888Live event at Aspers in London and also start streaming live on Twitch.

"Now that I am an 888poker Team Pro, I will start streaming some final tables on Twitch. I look forward to interacting with the players as a representative of the site."
