Moorman took 4th place in WSOP Online bracelet event
The 20th bracelet event that was carried out as part of the WSOP Online ended on Monday night. It was the $500 PLO tournament, which granted its winner $97 000 and a coveted gold bracelet. Chris Moorman was very close to winning this event, as he played at the final table.
627 players took part in the tournament, but the total number of entries equaled to 1 137, meaning that some participants used an opportunity to re-enter the game. This allowed a prize pool to reach the mark of $511 000, and after 13 hours of fighting, Ohio's Kevin Gerhart became a champion.
