Christina Lindley, veteran poker player, fitness model and named on the World Poker Tour’s “Ones to Watch” shortlist for the current season, is joining forces with acePLAYpoker.com, the free-to-play poker website launched this year by ACEP Interactive, the iGaming arm of American Casino & Entertainment Properties.
As the first member of acePLAYpoker.com’s official poker team, Lindley will participate in tournaments at the Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower on the north end of the Strip and online at the acePLAYpoker.com site. She will also represent acePLAYpoker.com at other events and poker tournaments.
“I’m absolutely thrilled to be playing on acePLAYpoker.com in Nevada and to begin to further promote the re-emergence of online poker on the U. S. scene with such a renowned website in Las Vegas,” she said. “Online poker will soon be reintegrated in to the lives of Americans everywhere, and I am proud to be at the forefront of this movement.”
Lindley’s ability as a poker player is well known. In 2010, she turned a $320 entry at the World Championship of Online Poker into a win of $127,000. She has two six-figure scores online, including the Full Tilt Online Poker Series, and has cashed-in at some of the world’s most popular tournaments, including the Main Event at the World Poker Tour’s Legends of Poker, the World Series of Poker (WSOP) and the NAPT Venetian.
“We’re delighted that a poker player of Christina Lindley’s caliber, in both online and live poker arenas, has chosen to become one of the inaugural members of acePLAYpoker.com,” said Alec Driscoll, director of gaming development at ACEP. “She brings a great deal of poker-playing experience and technique that is renowned across the poker world.”
