PokerStars Launches Online Team
PokerStars stable of sponsored pros grew by 23 players today with the announcement of Team PokerStars Online.
The company spent two months examining over 2,000 applications to decide who would be featured on the team – which is an offshoot of Team PokerStars Pro.
The online team consists of players from 18 different countries, 20 of whom are men and three are women.
PokerStars picked the team from a unique cross-section of stakes and games meaning players might see a few more PokerStars pros in the lower-stakes games.
Although the majority of the picked players are relatively unknown, avid poker fans might recognize Thomas “Boku87” Boekhoff, who has been doing a $5 to $100,000 challenge on the PokerStars blog.
Meanwhile Steve “stevesbets” Jacobs is celebrated in online circles for beating ElkY at the 2008 WCOOP $25,000 Heads-Up Championship for $560,000.
Finally Anders “Donald” Berg has served on Norway’s World Cup of Poker Team at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure in the Bahamas.
PokerStars isn’t finished yet as the company announced it would be adding more players to online team throughout 2010.
Below is the complete list of all 23 players that will serve as founding members of Team PokerStars Online.
