Lock Poker Signs New Players!Jul 22, 2011 – 14:07PM
London, UK - July 20th, 2011 - Lock Poker Signs Chris Moorman and Nicky Evans! LockPRO Army Continues to Grow!
Lock is thrilled to announce the new additions to their LockPRO ELITE team. Chris "moorman1" Moorman and Nicky "Cod Meharly" Evans.
Chris Moorman began playing poker in 2004. Taking 2nd place in his first ever tournament, a freeroll, Chris never actually deposited turning $120 into nearly $20,000. In his first Sunday major in 2006, Chris made the final table, and this is where the poker career of Moorman1 truly began. By January 2007, focusing exclusively on MTT's, he cracked the prestigious Top 100 on Pocket5's. This splash was just his entrance, as he went on to dominate with over 200 MTT wins in the biggest tournaments across every online site. By 2009, these wins were sufficient to propel him to the #1 spot and legendary status earning over $7,500,000 along the way. He holds the record for 9 P5's Triple Crowns!!! In 2011 Chris showed his talents expand well beyond the virtual felt, final tabling the Aussie Millions and his dominating WSOP performance leaves him in 4th place in POY entering WSOPE cementing his place as a unique talent in the poker world.
Nicky "Cod Meharly" Evans had a rather inauspicious start to his poker career in 2006. "Back then I played small home games and low stakes rebuys at the local casino. Like any beginner I took my lumps but it wasn't until losing to my girlfriend that my competitive side really came out. I read some books and began discussing hands with friends; I started taking it a bit more seriously," explained Nicky. Once that fire was lit, Evans became a regular winner racking up over $100,000 in earnings within a year. In 2009, Nicky felt comfortable enough to turn to full-time professional poker. Since then, he has racked up over $1,100,000 in live and online earnings, attained the rank of 59th on the prestigious Pocket5's online leader board, and given his current form is looking to make a press at the Top 10.
"Chris and Nicky are stars and we are all very excited to welcome them to the Lock Family," says Jennifer Larson CEO/Owner of Lock Poker. "Together we will work very hard to provide the best product, support and overall online poker experience worldwide. As we grow our LockPRO team, we get closer to really becoming the best online poker room in the world. Partnering with our players is the true path to success."
'I'm excited to sign for LockPoker and despite all of the negatives in the poker industry as of late, I believe Lock Poker has an incredibly bright future and is doing all the right things necessary to succeed in the current climate," says Chris "moorman1" Moorman. "I can't wait to be a huge part of that and look forward to taking them to the next level."
"I am super excited to represent Lock Poker as an ELITE LockPRO," says Nicky Evans. "The roster of talent they have is unbelievable and i am privileged to be part of such a team."
