Americas Cardroom congratulated its new pro Katie Lindsay for taking over the top of the GPI Ranking in poker for female players this weekend.

The Global Poker Index (“GPI”) is a ranking of the live tournament poker players in the world as of the day it is published. Players are ranked weekly based on their performance by finishing in cash positions in qualifying tournaments occurring over the previous 36 month period.

Lindsay is one ranking spot ahead of Kristen "Krissyb24" Bicknell at #89 and we fully expect her to climb further up the rankings in the coming weeks.  Only one other female ranks among the top 100, Nadya Magnus at #99.

Lindsay currently ranks higher than her husband, Chris Moorman.  He sits at #119.

"Katie’s poker game has come along way, and especially in the past few years, although she’s been putting up numbers both live and online for a while now," Moorman recently told Gambling911's own Thomas Somach. 

Katie and Chris both joined Team Americas Cardroom, now celebrating its 21st year in business, late last year.

"I never thought this would be something I would do," Katie relayed to Gambling911.  "I never once got into poker with that intention or goal. Actually I had been an agent for other poker players for years so I was always more interested in promoting them and not myself. It felt really genuine to be offered this deal. I have been out there for the last few years grinding hard and so it kind of feels like it doesn’t go unnoticed, which is nice since I am so incredibly hard on myself. I love all the goals of increasing my live hendon scores and climbing the ladies GPI rankings. ACR just felt like a perfect fit. I love their easygoing and fun loving mentality. That is what poker should be, fun!"

Congrats Katie on this amazing accomplishment.
