Hachem Hits TV; 180s go 24 hours; PokerStars wins award

Joe TV

Ah, the trappings of fame. First it was ESPN, then it was Leno, now 2005 World Series of Poker champion Joe Hachem is getting some more time in front of the camera.




Joe discusses the shoot with the crew

That's a behind the scenes look at a recent TV shoot starring none other than Team PokerStars' Joe Hachem. Look for Hachem's new PokerStars commercials to come out later this month.

Do a 180 all day long

Boy, you folks really like those 180s. A trial run of 180-player Sit & Go Tournaments on PokerStars proved that they were the kind of thing the players like. I just heard today, the 180s have hit the schedule fulltime. You'll find them 24-hours a day on the Tourney/All or Sit & Go/Mutli-Table tabs.

Also, word on the street is these tournaments have been so popular, we'll likely start seeing more of these kinds of tournaments with different buy-ins and player limits in the future.

PokerStars named Best Poker Operator

You likely already know PokerStars is the best place to play poker online. It's apparently no secret to one of the top online gaming magazines either. eGaming Review has named PokerStars.com the "Best Poker Operator of the Year." Noted for its diversity of games and software stability, PokerStars stood out from the field of competitors. The judges also noted that PokerStars is home to the online gaming world's most ambitious tournament poker players and a respected collection of World Series of Poker Champions.

Not too shabby, eh?
