WSOP Champions Choose PokerStars

One of the world's biggest online poker rooms, PokerStars.com are pleased to announce that the 2005 WSOP champion Joseph Hachem has joined past champions, Chris "Moneymaker" and Greg Raymar as a loyal PokerStars player and spokesperson. Maybe it's because PokerStars has some of the best multi-player tournaments on the web, or for their fantastic promotions or maybe it's their affiliation with huge events such as the WSOP or the WPT. Whatever it is, the three champion poker players are proud to call PokerStars home.

Earlier this year, Australia native Joseph Hachem made poker history and won the largest gambling prize ever known, $7.5 million, when he was named the 2005 WSOP champion. Hachem has been playing at PokerStars since 2002 and has played over 100,000 hands at the poker room during this time. Since his new found wealth, you will likely find Hachem taking part in some of the larger buy-in tournaments these days at Pokerstars.

Last year it was Greg Raymar who everyone was talking about. Known in the poker world as "Fossilman", Greg won a satellite qualifier at PokerStars earning him a free trip to a WSOP event. And to his surprise, he won the main event, making him a 2004 World Series of Poker champion. This ex patent lawyer is now one of the games biggest ambassadors. If you would like to play a game with Greg at PokerStars, look for the "Fossilman" (this is the name he plays under).

These days, every poker fan has heard of Chris Moneymaker. Like Greg, Chris won a PokerStars satellite competition and went on to win the 2003 WSOP main event. Since this win, Chris has appeared at the final table in many big tournaments and will continue to do so for many years. The ex account turned poker pro plays at PokerStars under the name "Money800".
