Top Online Poker Players Chris Moorman and Katie Lindsay Signed by Americas Cardroom
One of the most poker’s most successful couples were recently announced as team pros for Americas Cardroom.
The American-facing online poker site said that it added Chris Moorman and his wife Katie Lindsay to the Americas Cardroom Team.
Sint-Genesius-Rode “It’s a huge compliment to be asked to be part of an online poker site,” said Moorman. Kunwi “Only a handful of sponsorships are available these days so it’s an incredible feeling to join the ACR team. It validates all the hard work I’ve put into poker over the years.”
Few players have accomplished as much on the felt over the last 15 years as the 36-year-old British pro. Moorman has $6.15 million in live tournament earnings, including two World Series of Poker bracelets, one of which came in an online event this past summer, and a seven-figure score from a World Poker Tour title. The victory at the 2014 LA Poker Classic main event added a second seven-figure score to his name following a runner-up finish in the 2011 WSOP Europe main event.
He also amassed more than $19 million in online tournament winnings and was ranked as the top online tournament player multiple times over a dominant 15-year career thus far.
While Lindsay doesn’t have quite the resume as her spouse, she displayed dominance on the felt as well over the last several years. The Los Angeles native racked up $2 million in online earnings, as well as more than $500,000 in live cashes.
According to the announcement, she still values the social aspect of poker and is excited to represent a company she feels is aligned with those values.
“I started playing poker because I love games and this game especially,” said Lindsay. “I want nothing more from poker than to try and do my best every time I play, and of course, to have a few drinks and make some new friends. I feel like ACR is aligned with that mentality.”
Last January, the two made history as they became the first married couple to compete for a WSOP Circuit ring. In the $320 no-limit hold’em re-entry during the WSOP Online Circuit, the 612-entry field came down to Moorman and Lindsay heads-up.
Ultimately Moorman earned the victory and denied his wife her first WSOP victory. He won $19,510, while Lindsay netted $14,443.
