David Williams, Vanessa Selbst Newest Members Of Team Pokerstars: ProPublished on June 30th, 2010 7:05 pm EST
According to Pokerstars, David Williams and Vanessa Selbst have both agreed to become the newest members of "Team Pokerstars: Pro".
An official announcement from Pokerstars is expected to come on Thursday afternoon.
With these two signings, Pokerstars will add to an already stacked roster of sponsored pros that includes the likes of Daniel Negreanu, Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier, Barry Greenstein and Gavin Griffin.
David Williams has been a free agent ever since parting ways with Bodog earlier in the year. Williams has an extremely impressive poker resume that includes nearly $8 million in total lifetime tournament cashes, a second place finish in the WSOP main event (2004), a WPT title (2010 $25k WPT Championship) and a World Series of Poker bracelet ($1,500 7 Card Stud, 2006).
Vanessa Selbst (aka "fslexcduck") is also an extremely accomplished poker player, having amassed nearly $1.7 million in total tournament cashes over the course of her career. This number is made even more impressive by the fact that Selbst has been attending Yale Law School over the past couple of years and hasn't been able to play in many tournaments. Selbst, like Williams, owns a World Series of Poker bracelet (2008 $1,500 PLO). Vanessa also won the NAPT Mohegan Sun main event earlier this year for $750,000.
Vanessa Selbst is an instructor on Deucescracked.com, and will continue her affiliation with the site going forward.
A couple of very strong signings for Pokerstars..
