Team Poker Stars consists of over 20 top professionals. Apart from the three of the latest WSOP winners Chris Moneymaker, Greg Raymer and Joe Hachem the team also has a fourth World Champion - Tom McEvoy. He won the WSOP 1983 and has written numerous books about poker strategy. Other notable players in the team are stars like Daniel Negreanu, Barry Greenstein, Isabelle Mercier and Humberto Brenes, to name a few.
The team is closely connected with the explosive development of poker globally during the last decade. Chris Moneymaker is definitely one of the milestones. When he won the WSOP Main Event in 2003 after winning an entry to the prestigious tournament through a $33 satellite, he showed the world that anyone could become a poker champ.
Moneymaker was a totally unknown amateur that became a star over a night. He signed with Team Poker Stars and became one of poker's most important ambassadors. Moneymaker appeared in most major talk shows in the US and became well know even among people that had no previous poker knowledge.
The next two World Champs, Greg Raymer (2004) and Joseph Hachem (2005) also joined Team Poker Stars. The three of them together has been very important when it comes to spreading poker to a larger audience. That their efforts have been successful is proven by the fact that Poker Stars is the largest online poker room in the world.
