Chris Moorman Signs Deal With US-Facing Online Poker Site

Online Poker's Most Successful Tournament Player Lands Deal


British poker player Chris Moorman has a new deal with an online poker site.

888poker announced this week that the poker pro has joined its stable of sponsored players. The poker platform, which is involved with regulated online gaming industries in Nevada, New Jersey and Delaware, also sponsors Dominik Nitsche, Kara Scott and Sofia Lövgren.

“888 is doing big things and really is working hard to expand their reach in poker,” Moorman said in a statement. “Things like sponsoring the WSOP and the Super High Roller Bowl have shown they are committed to their growth of the brand, and I can’t wait to see what they have coming up in the future.”

Moorman reportedly has more than $13 million in online tournament earnings, to go along with roughly $4.1 million in the live setting. Moorman passed the $10-million mark online in late 2013.
