Chris Moorman captured his first World Series of Poker gold bracelet earlier today after winning Event #30: $3,000 No-Limit Hold’em 6-Handed.
Moorman, who has over $14 million in online tournament winnings, started the final day 4th in chips and made his way to the final table that featured former bracelet winners Steve Sung and Michael Gagliano. However, it was Brazil’s Bernando Dias who eventually found himself heads-up against Moorman for the title. In the final hand, Dias was all-in preflop for his tournament life with K-T offsuit and lost the title after Moorman’s A-K offsuit held.

The British online legend told in last year interview, that he was thinking about playing more WSOP mixed game events to improve his chances of winning a bracelet, but as it turns out he managed to win his first bracelet in his favorite game after all:
“[Winning a bracelet] would mean the world to me. I’m starting to think that if it doesn’t happen over the next couple of years I’ll start playing the mixed games. I don’t really want to, but I might have to do it, because I’ll only have to beat 100 or 120 players in those things instead of thousand,” Moorman said.
A total of 959 entries were made in Event #27: $3,000 No-Limit Hold’em 6-Handed and Moorman earned just under half a million dollars for his win. Moorman has also won a WPT title and this win takes his total live tournament earnings to $5 million.
