Chris Moneymaker ACR

Last week, Chris Moneymaker shocked the poker world by announcing that he had inked a deal with Americas Cardroom, an illegal cardroom that poker pros in the United States hate but keep coming back to.

Upon hearing the news, BonusCodePoker reached out to Moneymaker for comment on what motivated him to sign with the controversial poker room.

“Oh, it’s THAT Americas Cardroom? … shit.”

A clearly embarrassed Moneymaker continued.

“With all the online poker rooms opening in the United States, I thought it was just some regulated online poker room’s tagline. God dammit… I really could use a new agent… do you think they’re gonna ghost me?”

Moneymaker and ACR renegotiate contract

After realizing the gravity of his mistake, Moneymaker reportedly requested that ACR sweeten the deal to account for damage to his reputation. Moneymaker first asked ACR if he could go The Isilidur route and do the “silhouette thing” in advertisements in order to protect himself against publicly associating with the illegal site.

But that idea was unfortunately rejected by the guy that does all of ACR’s marketing, customer service, and poker bot detection (the same guy is also the company’s general counsel and CFO).

This idea was nixed by the Americas Cardroom marketing team guy.

Following days of exhaustively renegotiating the contract, Americas Cardroom and Moneymaker settled on a deal that neither could refuse. Americas Cardroom gets the services of one of the world’s most beloved poker players, and Moneymaker gets a guaranteed 3-year, 20,000 cheeseburger contract and the emotional security that comes from being well-fed through 2023.

BonusCodePoker can exclusively reveal that the cheeseburgers are only available via a BOGO offer that expires in November (of 2019). Moneymaker will also receive two used napkins and an expired Visa gift card that is missing the security code.

After expressing caution about associating with an illegal poker room, and fearing that ACR might actually make him play at the poker room, Moneymaker is finally at peace with his decision.

“This seems like a win-win. It looks like I am set in the cheeseburger department, and nobody really needs brand new napkins anyway.”

When we informed him that the burger clause expired a month prior to he even signed it, his tone changed.

“F**K! Do you know anybody at GGPoker?”
