HEADLINE: Daniel Negreanu is the Newest Poker Star at Team PokerStars

PokerStars added another huge name in professional poker to its site, as it announced that Daniel Negreanu has signed as the newest member of Team

"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,'' Negreanu said in a press release. "I'm very excited about joining Team PokerStars. The organization seems like the perfect fit for me and I'm glad they feel the same way."

Negreanu has joined 18 other players, including three of the last four World Series of Poker champions: Greg "Fossilman" Raymer, Joe Hachem, and Chris Moneymaker, as well as former WSOP champ Tom McEvoy, top charitable contributor Barry "Robin Hood" Greenstein, Isabelle Mercier AKA "No Mercy", Katja "Miss Slick" Thater, Humberto Brenes, Steve Paul-Ambrose, Vanessa "Lady Maverick" Rousso, Luca Pagano to name but a few.

A native of Toronto Canada, now living in Las Vegas Nevada, Negreanu early recognized he had a knack for gambling and specifically for poker. Negreanu took the world of tournament poker by storm and never looked back with two first place finishes at the 1997 World Poker Finals at Foxwoods.

He has since added three World Series of Poker bracelets, two World Poker Tour titles, and more than thirty victories in tournaments across the globe (click here for his profile).

The deal is the third online poker site endorsement deal for Negreanu, having worked with Poker Mountain, then FullContactPoker (FCP), which he sold the marketing and business management duties to Big Stack Enterprises based in Curacao.

"Daniel embodies what poker and Poker Stars 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."

At the press conference held yesterday, it was announced that all players at FCP will have their accounts transfered to PokerStars. If FCP players do not have a PokerStars account, they will receive an email explaining to them how to open one and have their dollars transferred. FCP will not cease to exist, but it will no longer offer live poker.
