Welcome to the Team
The Team PokerStars Pro roster just got one name longer. Slovakian pro, Dag Palovic will now be donning the PokerStars patch at all of the tournaments he attends. His two deep runs in the 2009 and 2010 World Series of Poker Main Events, and his almost $750,000 career tournament earnings make him an exemplary candidate to be patched up, but we're sure that bleaching his hair blonde and painting the PokerStars red spade logo on the back of his head, certainly didn't hurt.
"It is great opportunity to play as a Team Pro member of the largest online poker site in the world," Plaovic said. "I hope to improve my results in the future to be really a good and visible member of the team."
