PokerStars has landed one of the biggest sharks in the poker industry. Today, it announced that it signed Daniel Negreanu as a member of Team PokerStars.
He joins 18 other players, among them three of the last four World Series of Poker champions (Greg Raymer, Joe Hachem, and Chris Moneymaker), tournament and high-stakes superstar Barry Greenstein, Humberto Brenes, Steve Paul-Ambrose, Vanessa Rousso, former WSOP champ Tom McEvoy.
Full Contact Poker will cease all poker and casino operations in all countries and return FullContactPoker.com to its roots as a forum-based poker community that features Daniel Negreanu and his popular blog, video diaries and a new video poker school that is in development. FCP players now have the opportunity to shift their FCP accounts over to PokerStars, where they will join over 9 million other players on the World’s largest poker site, assuring themselves of a game of poker any time of day.
This is good news for PokerStars. Daniel is one of the top players in the game. Most of the top players are currently playing at Full Tilt.
