Live tournament round up sees Chris Moorman close in on his first live major title after making the final table of the World Poker Tour (WPT) LAPC with over 3m chips.
Can Chris Moorman finally bag a live major title?
It’s the same question I asked yesterday and I will keep on asking it until the British superstar gives me a reason to shut the hell up.
But I think this is it – I really do.
You see it has been a week to remember from the lad from Brighton. He took the award for Best Online Tournament Player at the British Poker Awards, and has just regained the accolade of best online tournament player in the world on PocketFives.
That’s what I call momentum, and why I think a WPT title is just 24-hrs away from finding its way onto the mantelpiece of Mr. Moorman.
He will start the final table in the number one seat and has 3,190,000 chips, more than anyone other than the chip leader Michael Rocco who will take the six seat with 5,615,000.
That’s over 100 big blinds, and when you mix that factor with his form, and experience, then it’s hard pressed to see anything other than luck getting in his way.
The penultimate day of action saw two well-known faces disappearing into the ether. The former WPT Player of the Year, Joe Serock, was hungry for his first title but faded away in 10th, and Dan O’Brien started the day with the shortest stack in the field, but managed to dodge, duck and dive his way through the field to eventually finish as the final table bubble boy.
The remaining six players are each guaranteed a minimum of $200,000, but with over a million up top, and such deep stacks, it’s going to be an absorbing last day of action before the WPT heads over to Venice.
