Americas Cardroom Leads the Way in Promoting Women in Poker
It’s an imperative that those responsible for helping shape and influence poker do their utmost, and part of encouraging more women to enter what used to be such a male-oriented world is to actually be seen to afford women opportunities that inspire potential recruits to what is a truly fascinating and exciting game.
In fact, you’ll find that four of ACR Team pros are women, with each contributing to the cause in their own way.
Ana Marquez (above) was once the top ranked poker player in Spain, and has accumulated around $2 Million in live poker winnings. Having being introduced to poker during her time at American University in Washington, DC she got the bug to the point that she even wrote her Bachelor’s thesis on the history of poker since the 1970s! Catch her at the ACR tables under the screenname AnaMarquez.
Katie Lindsay joined the ACR Pro team in November 2021 alongside her husband, the top player, Chris Moorman. With more than one string to her proverbial poker bow, Katie has experienced considerable success both live and online, chalking up over $2 million in online earnings and over a $500,000 playing live. In January 2021, she and her husband made history as the first married couple to go heads-up for a WSOP Gold Ring, with the husband eventually emerging the winner... The fashion-loving pro is no stranger to poker rooms in Nevada, California, London and more, and Texas Hold'em and Omaha fans can find her at ACR using the alias katelin.
