David Williams is Latest Poker Pro at PokerStars

July 5, 2010

The world’s largest online poker site, PokerStars, has just signed David Williams as their latest poker pro. David Williams’ managing agency, Poker Royalty, confirmed that he has become part of the PokerStars family.

Williams recently parted ways with Bodog Poker after he took down the final table at the World Poker Tour Championship at the Bellagio. The win marked his fourth WPT final table, and it’s rumored that Williams wasn’t satisfied with the bonus which Bodog awarded him for the win.

Williams’ poker career gained recognition after his second place finish at the 2004 World Series of Poker Main Event. He pocketed more than $3.5 million for finishing runner-up to Greg Raymer. Williams then went on to land a seat at the final table of the World Poker Tour Bay 101 event winning $280,000 in addition to his win of a World Series of Poker bracelet at the $1,500 Seven-Card Stud tournament at the 2006 World Series of Poker. Williams followed up his bracelet win with a runner-up title in the $5k No Limit 2-7 Draw Lowball tournament for another $250,000. To date, Williams has won almost $8 million dollars in live tournament play.

David Williams has been featured in televised tournaments including the National Heads-Up Poker Championship, NBC’s “Poker After Dark,” GSN’s “High Stakes Poker,” and the PokerStars-backed “Big Game.”

As the latest Poker Pro sign to PokerStars, David Williams joins a team of pros which includes Joe Cada, Greg Raymer, Vanessa Rousso, Joe Hachem, Chris Moneymaker, Peter Eastgate, Barry Greenstein, and PokerStars’ top gun, Daniel Negreanu.

Part of Williams’ duties as part of Team PokerStars will be to don tons of PokerStars gear, represent the brand at live poker events around the world, and play the tables online at PokerStars.com against PokerStars players.
