After Moneymaker, Celina Lin Bids Farewell to PokerStars

Lin served as PokerStars ambassador for over a decade.

Just days after Chris Moneymaker along with five other pros announced departure from Team PokerStars, another long-time serving PokerStars Pro, Celina Lin, bid farewell to the company.

Lin joined PokerStars over a decade ago back in 2010.

Born in Shanghai China, Lin is considered to be one of the most successful poker players in Asia. In fact, she was the last PokerStars Pro to represent Team Asia. (Muskan Sethi is currently the only member of Team PokerStars India).

In 2009, Lin became the first female poker player to win the Macau Poker Cup Red Dragon Main Event. Three years later she won that even again.

She becomes the seventh Team Pro member to leave PokerStars in a matter of just a week.

Chris Moneymaker that served as PokerStars ambassador for nearly two decades was the most notable name to leave the company.

Along with Moneymaker, a trio of streamers under the name OP-Poker (*Nick Walsh, James Mackenzie and Eva Reberc), French live player Kalidou Sow, and Russian online pro Mikhail “innerpsy” Shalamov ended their partnership with PokerStars on the last day of 2020.

After 17 Years Chris Moneymaker Leaves PokerStars

After almost two decades of representing PokerStars, Chris Moneymaker, has announced it is parting ways with the online poker operator.

Moneymaker is world famous for his 2003, rags to riches win of the World Series of Poker Main Event, which resulted in the online poker boom of the early naughties.

PokerStars had created this farewell video, speaking to prominent members of the poker community to wish Moneymaker all the best.

PokerStars has been working on a major new product feature, Tips from the Moneymaker, so the timing of Moneymakers exit is a bit peculiar—it remains to be seen if PokerStars will can the Tips with Moneymaker idea now.

At the same time Moneymaker announced he was leaving the company, French live player Kalidou Sow, Russian online pro Mikhail “innerpsy” Shalamov and a trio of streamers under the name OP Poker also ended their partnerships with the operator.
