Since Christina Lindley quit acting to pursue a career as a professional poker player, she’s been doing rather well. This evening she won the $1,100 No-Limit Hold’em $200,000 Guaranteed Main Event at The Venetian. The tough final table included Matt Stout and Justin Young and Christina beat the former heads-up to take the first prize and the trophy for $70,000.
Christina Lindley has other great achievements on her CV. In 2010 she won the PokerStars USA COOP for $ 127,500 and in 2013 she came 5th in the Grand Prix de Paris’ Main Event for $113,614.
In 2013 Christina was signed as the first pro at online poker website acePLAYpoker.com. In the press release she stated: ” I’m absolutely thrilled to be playing on acePLAYpoker.com in Nevada and to begin to further promote the reemergence of online poker on the U. S. scene with such a renowned website in Las Vegas.”
