ACR Pro, Katie Lindsay wins first WSOP ring

Our ACR Team Pros are in the news once again with Katie Lindsay winning a WSOP Circuit Event last Friday, taking home over $15,000 and her first ring. Ironically, fellow ACR Pro, Ryan Depaulo finished second in the event.

You can see the specific tourney and her excitement in her Twitter post:

Katie was also happy to provide a quote to the Big Blind Blog:

“I had set a goal of winning a WSOP ring a while ago and kept falling short. The closest I got was heads-up last year against my husband Chris (Moorman) but he took it down. Crazy enough I ended up heads-up again vs. another ACR Pro, Ryan Depaulo and this time I finally got the win! This is an incredible feeling and now I can’t wait to keep winning more.”

As we mentioned, Ryan Depaulo not only got $11,075 for his second-place finish but he followed it up with a third-place finish in another WSOP Circuit Event, winning $10,800 more. However, despite his success, he seemed happier about Katie’s accomplishments.

“It was crazy, I wasn’t even positive it was her until she texted me GG after. I was happy it was her but then once she told me it was her first (ring) and how much it meant to her and that she cried, I had an honest moment of pure happiness with zero thoughts of “I wish I won”. It was like the rarest of poker moments, feeling altruistic and happy for someone who beat you. Now, it’s two days later and that feeling has faded a little (I wish I won!) but I’m still super happy for her.”
