Between Two Beers podcast: How Chris Moorman won $42 million playing poker

Chris Moorman is one of the most successful poker players of all time.

He has won over $42 million dollars playing cards and is widely considered to be the best online tournament player ever ($32 million in winnings), but he’s also crossed over successfully into live tournaments – winning over $1 million on three separate occasions (and $10 million total).

At one point, Moorman was also one of the biggest ‘backers’ in the online poker scene, and tells the incredible story of how some amateur money-management and sloppy decision-making cost him around $3 million.

Chris is a poker legend; driven, humble, insightful and a great storyteller. We hear all his best stories from his 15 years as a poker pro, the mental-skills coach that helped him to his first big live win, the time he lost a backpack with $60,000 in it, playing against his wife for $20,000, the most degenerate gambling stories he’s heard across 15 years as a poker pro, the work ethic needed to become the best in the world and so much more.
