PokerStars have definitely been in the spotlight for the past months specially thanks to their purchase of the Full Tilt Poker assets and their commitment of re-payment to old Full Tilt players.
In speculations of PokerStars letting Viktor Blom go as a sponsored Team PokerStars player, many people assumed that “Isuldur” would be the new face of the re-launched Fullt Tilt poker. We were happy to read last week that such would be the case as well would Tom Dwan and Gus Hansen represent the new Fullt Tilt Poker.
In indications that more and more familiar would join Full Tilt, it was announced late this week that well known and successful online poker pro Isaac Haxton was to join their Team Pokerstars Online.
Haxton, boomed into the poker scene in early 2007 finishing in second place in the PCA in Bahamas. For that achievement Haxton earned himself $861,789 in cash as well as a reputation for being a force to reckon with in coming poker tournaments.
Later that year as well in 2008, Haxton managed to cash in WSOP eight times and later on in 2009 he hit the jackpot when he finished in second place the the $40,000 buy-in anniversary and cashing stunning $1,168,565
In total Isaac has made over $4,000,000 in tournament playing and we are sure that he will bring some good high stakes action to PokerStars.
