31 year old Chris Moorman (@Moorman1) is a British poker player, member of 888poker and is currently all time leader in online tournament earnings with more then $10 million in winnings. Moorman transition from online to live, the biggest differences are that with an online tournaments preflop decisions were paramount and in live tournaments you really have a greater focus on post-flop decisions. In general because the live tournaments are much deeper stacked which allows your more play and it’s more interesting to have to be able to make post-flop decisions.The flop chart, do I push here? What do I do, seems more robotic to me, I know there’s a lot of math involved in a lot of stuff but the game seems better when you get a lot of post-flop play and the battle of wits.
