The select poker club known as Team PokerStars has just added to its numbers by four. This is a team comprising the best poker players in the world and forms an elite club of poker professionals who travel all over the globe in search of the hottest poker tournament action.
Team PokerStars which is the high society of poker has added four new members and now has a strength of 23 poker players altogether. The latest additions to this select club include Tuan Lam, Dario Minieri, Hevad “RaiNKhaN” Khan and Raymond Rahme.
The new players of Team PokerStars will by no means feel overshadowed by the rest of their team as they are also stars in their own right and have several tournament wins notched into their own belts.
Tuan Lam for instance started off as a dealer in the poker room of a friend and only learnt poker to stand in as a prop player there! His skills were soon apparent and he later turned poker pro. Tuan Lam went all the way to the World Series and came in at second place earning him a Main Event bracelet and 5 million dollars.
Dario Minieri is a young Italian poker star who has won $300,000 in live poker tourneys so far. He is the first PokerStar to buy a Porsche with his frequent player points and is now gearing for an Aston Martin- with his next set of points!
Hevad “RaiNKhaN” Khan can play so many single tables simultaneously that he was first suspected to be a bot! “RaiNKhaN” as he is better known is extraordinarily skilled at multi-tasking with poker and has gone on to win almost a million dollars in the final table of the World Series of Poker 2007.
Raymond Rahme only learnt how to play Texas Hold’em in 2005 and went on to become the first person from Africa to make the World Series Main Event Final table. He made thirds place and took in more than $3 million.
