PokerStars is the biggest online poker site in the world, and you can just imagine the hopes and dreams of any young aspiring poker player is to get on the books of the “Manchester United of Poker” in order to be seen as part of the inner circle of pros. If only to try your hardest to win the heart of recently signed pro Liv Boeree – then if all else fails there’s always the chance Full Tilt may have some money in the pot after signing Fraudly Harrison and the Virgin F1 deal. Don’t count on it though.
Toni Judet is one of the lucky ones. The former billiard champion from Romania, will join fellow countryman, and cue-man, Daniel Negreanu on the PokerStars roster, looking to add to his impressive EPT resume that includes a side event victory at the EPT main event, that boosted his wallet with an impressive $250,000.
Being so good on a couple of felt-based platforms, Paddy Power will soon be opening the betting on the next type of felt Judet will be putting to good use. Our bet is that he’ll be using that $250k prize to open up a gallery of pictures, drawn exclusively with felt tip pens.
