Chris Moorman and his wife fought for WSOP Circuit ring
Few days ago, a $320 buy-in tournament took place as part of the WSOP Circuit, and there was a real family confrontation in the finals. Famous poker player Chris Moorman and his wife Katie happened to reach the heads-up so they fought against each other.
There is no need to remind how much money Moorman has won playing poker. It's clear that his wife's achievements are less impressive: $385 000 in live tournament winnings and a few ITMs at the WSOP. Regardless of that, at some point in the tournament, Katie took the lead in terms of the stack and had all chances to win a WSOP ring.
In the last hand, Lindsay played Q-4 and Moorman called holding J-10. Everything went well for Katie when 9-3-Q-4 appeared on the board, as she hit two pair. However, the next street had other plans in this regard. The eight on the river allowed Moorman to make a straight and he turned out to be the winner.

After the tournament, Moorman noted that his wife had long dreamed of winning the WSOP ring. The girl wanted to win it even more than a gold bracelet, so he had to make a big effort in order not to give in as he didn’t have such a dream.
Moorman's wife added that playing the tournament had been quite funny. Katie was in the next room, so the couple often yelling at each other, especially when playing huge pots. They also engaged in some good-natured banter throughout the event.
As a result, the family budget increased by $34 000, since Moorman received $19 500 for the first place, and his wife was given $14 400 for the second place. But, Katie's biggest poker dream, that is to win the WSOP ring, still remains unfulfilled.
