ACR Pros - Chris Moneymaker

With a name like Chris Moneymaker, it’s not much of a surprise that he’s incredible at poker.

The former PokerStars Team Pro now proudly wears the Americas Cardroom badge, representing the site that stands proudly for big poker in America.

Chris knows a thing or two about big poker. In 2003, he entered an online poker satellite on Stars, which fed into a larger satellite. Before he knew it, Chris had a $10,000 WSOP Main Event package that included a spot in the world’s richest poker tournament.

The rest, as they say, is history. Chris went on to win that live tournament, netting $2.5 million in prize money and securing his place in history.

Without Chris Moneymaker, Americas Cardroom might not even be a thing. With that 2003 World Series of Poker win, Chris started the online poker revolution, igniting a boom that would take the industry to new heights and help create the poker room that Americas Cardroom is today.

Other notable successes include a 2nd place finish in the WPT Bay 101 Shooting Stars $5,500 Main Event for $200,000, a 6th place finish in the WCOOP $10,300 No Limit Hold’em event for $139,635 and a 2nd place finish in the National Heads-Up Poker Championship for $300,000.
