Posted ImageTournament Accomplishents: 7th All-Time WPT Money Leader $1,894,860WPT Player of the Year (Season Two)Three WPT Final Tables (Season Two)Two WPT Wins Eight cashes on the WPTWPT Champion Aruba Classic (Season Two)PartyPoker Million (Season Two)Won a PPT event in Los Angeles29th on All-time money list Five WSOP CashesWSOP Earnings$92,670Total Tournament Earnings: $1,791,302 (compiled by pokerpages.com)Cash Game Accomplishments: The public often misjudges Erick as an online pro turned tournament player. Before internet poker even existed, Erick was a low limit prop in Northen California. Once internet poker was introduced, though, Erick went on a tear and is considered one of the most successful online poker players of all time. Erick has also played some high limit live poker on a limited basis.Best game: Limit Hold'em- Having played countless hours online in the biggest games available, Erick is a hardened pro when it comes to limit hold'em. Whether it be heads up, short handed, or a ring game, Erick is a master in all facets of the game.Worst Game: Seven Card Stud- The reason for this is likely that he doesn't have enough hours in the game. There is no reason to think that he wouldn't be an accomplished Stud player if he worked on it.Strengths: Work ethic. Erick works very hard at the game and is always looking to improve his level of focus both in tournaments and online. Also his ability to exploit weaknesses in average to novice players that come from the online world, help him out a great deal in those large fields that we see today.Weaknesses: Work ethic! Life's distractions often cut into Erick's relaxation time and have kept him from making a real splash at the WSOP thus far. Erick has to be considered possibly the best poker player in the world without a WSOP bracelet.Cash Games: 7 Tournaments: 8 Emotional Stability: 9 Heart: 7.5 Short Handed: 7.5 Ring Game: 8No Limit Hold'em: 8 Other notes: While Erick was dissapointed once again with his results at the WSOP in 2005, he is still in the running for the 2005 Card Player of the Year.Erick is part of a strong young group of players in the game today that you'll be hearing from on a regular basis over the next 20 years or so!For more information on Erick, check out his website at www.ericklindgren.com.

I love e-dog, very similar lifestyle as mine, ex-athlete played a lot of HS sports, Loves poker and still bets and watches sporting events. He is also in my top 3, along with Daniel and Arieh because of his internet poker beginnings and doing what I'll be doing this summer playing 8 tables. The man is mad insane with his tournament game, I'd love to watch this guy other than just on the internet he just seems like a good guy.

Lingdren is absolutely sick.
i saw him at the riverbank. he was breaking bread and giving thanks. with crosses made of pipes and planks. leaned up against the nitrous tanks.
he said take a hit. hold your breath and i'll dunk your head. then when you wake up, you'll be high as hell and born again.

EXTREMELY underrated. He is a great player but for some reason no one ever mentions him as one of the best players in the game. He makes my top 10 easily.

i like his advice on learn from the pros show
You know the world is going crazy when the best rapper is a white guy, the best golfer is a black guy, the tallest guy in the NBA is Chinese, the Swiss hold the America's Cup, France is accusing the U.S. of arrogance, Germany doesn't want to go to war, and the three most powerful men in America are named 'Bush', 'Dick', and 'Colon'.

I love all their advice on Learn from the pros, especially E-dog. I also like how sometimes people don't know when to talk because they would be interrupting other people.

The people who don`t know his name, will know it soon. His WPT titiles as well as his desire to get better will only mean future successGood match between him and DN on PokerSuperstars III as well enjoyed watching it.

I am a big fan of Lindgren, and pull for him every year at the WSOP. He keeps coming close, but that bracelet is still eluding him. If you ask me its a shame that WSOP bracelets are the only thing some people judge a poker player's prowess with. While winning one is an amazing accomplishment, there are many other tournaments and things to consider when you weigh the top players in the world.
