In a shock announcement at the end of last year, Chris Moneymaker told the poker world that he was parting ways with PokerStars after 17 years as a team pro for the site.
Fast-forward a month and Moneymaker is now the face of Americas Cardroom (ACR) a US-facing offshore online poker site—quite a u-turn from working with the highly regulated PokerStars.
However according to Poker.org, Moneymaker said of the move: “I heard what [ACR] was doing, and I heard all the improvements they’ve been making to the site and how they’re fighting bots. And basically to me it seemed like PokerStars did back in 2004, 2005. They’re really trying to grow the game.”
Here you can watch the ACR crew, made up of Micheal Loncar, Jeff Boski, Ryan DePaulo, Drew Gonzalez, Eboney Kenney, John Pardy and Justin Kelly; all welcoming Moneymaker to the site.
