PokerStars announced on October 28th that they are teaming up with ESPN to offer their poker software to the free play poker room on ESPN.com. This PokerStars Powered poker room is part of the “ESPN Poker Club” and will be free – no real money poker. The ESPN Poker Club is expanding in preparation for the airing of the WSOP “November Nine” final table on November 9th.
Joe Versaci (PokerStars.net Marketing Director) says:
“ESPN.com is one of the most important online sports venues, and ESPN Poker Club is entering its fifth year on the site. This agreement will enable PokerStars to implement its superior technology and integrity in operation, and we look forward to establishing more product innovation with ESPN in the future.”
The ESPN Poker Club lets poker players compete for prizes like a free trip to the 2011 PCA (PokerStars Caribbean Adventure)!
