Chris Moorman, considered by most knowledgeable people a top 3 tournament player of all time, just fell under the weight of monster stack Karim-Olivier Kamal.
Karim, a very capable local, is not one to let himself be impressed by Moorman’s reputation, and was very active in the 3-way, playing his leading stack as he should. He was in every pot, and every now and then, released when opposed.
Moorman was down to just over 50M out of the 1.2G chips in play. He found a good hand on the button, and committed to the pot. Kauvsegan Ehamparam was in the big blind, and after Karim folded, woke up with a premium.
Moorman finished 3rd, good for $88,000. He will add them to his impressive results table. Well done!
Karim now has almost a billion chips. Let the heads-up match begin!
