The 2017 World Series of Poker event was a very good one for a lot of players as many of the winners of the different events happened to win the gold bracelet for the very first time in their career.
The 2017 WSOP $3,000 Six-Max No-Limit hold’em Event was won by online poker legend Chris Moorman. He took home $498,682 by virtue of winning the popular event. Chris Moorman is also the World Poker Tour champion and now he has added the WSOP title to his kitty.
Moorman has been a very good performer at the WSOP event so far. He had missed the WSOP win twice in his career so far by narrow margins. He finished second in the $10,000 six-max no-limit hold’em event and also had a runner-up performance at the WSOP Europe main event in 2012. But, the 2017 WSOP event had other plans for Moorman.
He was able to go one step up and claim the gold bracelet and a very good cash prize despite facing tough challenges from Bernardo Dias, Steve Sung, Max Silver and Michael Galliano at the final table. The 31-year-old British native man, who spends most parts of his time in the US, has now earned a total of $5.1 million in his career so far just in live tournaments. He has amassed a total of $14 million playing online poker.
Moorman said that he is experiencing a surreal feeling after winning the event and his first gold bracelet of his career. It is just like winning it real in a live tournament and is a totally different experience than an online game. He says everything happens all alone in an online poker event and there are no players around. But, the feeling is totally different and enjoyable when winning a live event.
