Team Pokerstars Players You Might Never Have Herd Of
We are sick of seeing player profiles of all the big names so we decided to put together a list of Team Pokerstars players you might never have herd of. For those that don’t know Team Pokerstars is a group of professional poker players sponsored by Pokerstars. They are sent to live events and TV tournaments to represent Pokerstars and to expose the Pokerstars brand.
All of the Team Pokerstars pro’s can be found when they are playing online at Pokerstars using the Find a Pokerstars Team Pro function. To use this function open up the Pokerstars lobby, find the ‘Requests’ tab at the top of the lobby, scroll down the list until you find ‘Find a Pokerstars Team Player…’ option, once selected you can view all of the Team Pokerstars players who are currently online and see what tables they are playing by double clicking on there name (double click again on any table in the list to visit it).
Below is a list of the players we have written profiles on. All the profiles include a bit of information about the players background, their best WSOP, EPT and WPT results and a section which deals with their online earnings which when compared to live earnings can be interesting reading!
