PokerStars big guns out for WSOP Champions Invitational

wsop2009_thn.gifPokerStars is home to the world champions. So when the WSOP introduced a Champions Invitational to this year's Las Vegas schedule, it was always going to be rammed with members of our team. Fighting for bragging rights, a shiny 1970 red Corvette, and the Binions Cup are five of our world champs - although Greg Raymer is currently rather busy on the $40,000 final table.


Joe Hachem

Current world champion Peter Eastgate, Joe Hachem (2005), Chris Moneymaker (2003) and Tom McEvoy (1983) all proudly sported the colours of PokerStars when they settled into their seats after being introduced one-by-one to the Amazon Room.

While Jamie Gold, the 2006 winner, was the first to bust out, Moneymaker soon joined him on the rail. This is a two-day event, and here's how they looked when they started off - though I'm not sure which one will look best driving off in the Corvette...
