Pokerstars Online Poker Giants
Sponsorship deals in poker are hard to come by, especially with the economy still scrambling around in the mire, so in order to get yourself a corporate donor you need to be a very lucky or very special player indeed.
Over the past five years it has been those that have succeeded in the live arena that have prospered, indeed, online poker giants Pokerstars have signed-up three of the last five WSOP Main Event champions making them one of the leading sponsors in the industry.
With this fact in mind then it will come as no surprise that Pokerstars are once again leading the way when it comes to innovation in the poker world, as they have just unveiled their new team of sponsored online pros. Similar to Doyle’s elite band of ten online geniuses, Pokerstars have whittled through thousands of applications from some of the internet’s finest poker players and formed a veritable army of 23 crack players.
The carefully selected online team will run alongside the current stable of Pokerstars pros with each member receiving a range of perks as well as the chance to represent the stellar online poker room at some of the biggest events across the world. While many of the names (and faces) on the list will be unfamiliar to the poker public at large there is no doubt that each players is a talent in their own right.
One particular member of the team, Thomas “Boku87” Boekhoff, is one of the top sit-n-go players in the world and can be regularly found playing more then 30 tables at a time whilst still making a healthy profit. This latest move by Pokerstars is just another example of why they are the leading poker site on the internet and another reason why internet players the world over will be flocking to the room in the future.
