PokerStars announced today that they will be adding another top professional player to their ranks. Daniel Negreanu was named as the latest pro to make PokerStars their home. Negreanu will be joining the likes of Greg Raymer and Chris Moneymaker as the newest member of Team PokerStars. PokerStars is well placed to handle such big name players as it is currently the largest online poker site in the world.
Hailing from Toronto in Canada, but now settled in Las Vegas, Nevada, Negreanu went on to earn himself three WSOP bracelets, gaining the first at the age of 23. As prominent in high stakes cash games as he is high profile tournaments, Negreanu is hugely popular in poker circles. Dubbed "Kid Poker", he was awarded four 'Player of the Year' accolades in 2004 alone.
"Daniel embodies what poker and PokerStars are all about: enjoying the excitement and the challenge of poker" says Barry Greenstein, long time colleague and now team mate of Negreanu.
Devotees of Full Contact Poker will be pleased to hear that they too are welcome to join PokerStars, says Greenstein; "Daniel is a true ambassador of the sport and we welcome him to the Team as well as all of his players and fans from Full Contact Poker. We know they will enjoy the PokerStars experience."
With PokerStars hailing its Team as "poker's best" it's no wonder Negreanu took the opportunity to become a member.
"I'm very excited about joining Team PokerStars. The organisation seems like the perfect fit for me and I'm glad they feel the same way." said Daniel.
Players of all levels have been a fan of PokerStars formats for some time. Commenting on the site Negreanu said: "I've enjoyed a long personal relationship with the folks at PokerStars since the company's founding in 2001 and have always felt as though PokerStars fully understood what players wanted: lots of tournaments, lots of variety and great software".
