Erick Lindgren And His Online Cash Poker RecordApril 6, 2011 8:16 am
Team Full Tilt’s Erick Lindgren has been a consummate pro for over ten years now and is still one of the most recognisable faces in the whole of tournament poker.
The 34 year-old’s impressive record stands largely for itself having earned $7,534,197 from live tournament since cashing in at his first event in 2000.
Currently placed 26th on poker’s ‘All Time Money List,’ Lindgren’s accomplishments include 2 WPT titles, as well as a WSOP Bracelet in 2008 at the $5k Mixed Hold’em event. That year Lindgren was also voted the WSOP player of the year having cashed in five times to earn $1,348,528 in prize money.
Lindgren also met model turned poker pro Erica Schoenberg on the circuit back in early 2010 and the pair have been going steady ever since.
However, one area of poker where Erick Lindgren hasn’t exactly excelled in over the years is online cash poker. Playing exclusively at Full Tilt and currently stuck $1,567,500, Lindgren has yet to post a winning year at the site’s cash games and in 2007 lost $388,608, in 2008 lost $441,373, in 2009 lost $499,343, and in 2010 lost a further $337,932.
However, Erick Lindgren may be hoping his fortune at the virtual cash tables is about to change after posting an $87,000 profit at the 6-Max $300/$600 PLO tables yesterday to go $99,757 in the black for 2011.
Helpingto contribute to Lindgren’s bankroll over the 428 hand session were such notable online cash pros as Hac “trex313” Dang, cadillac1944, NoParasan, LokoIsBack and Chau “La Key U” Giang.
Once one of the original “Young Guns” of poker, Lindgren was recently asked What he considered to be the most challenging part of today’s poker, to which he replied:
“The hardest part for me is keeping up with these young guys in terms of the new moves they’re making and trying to find counter-moves to the strategies they are employing.”
Cash poker is certainly a challenging arena full of numerous minefields and pitfalls, but after his latest encouraging result Erick Lindgren will now be hoping to go on and record his first winning year at the site since 2007.
