PokerStars is home to perhaps the world's most impressive stable of sponsored pros- Team PokerStars Pro. Members of the team include players who shine both on and off the table, including Daniel Negreanu, Barry Greenstein, Bertrand 'ElkY' Grospellier, Vanessa Rousso, and many more.
Martin Staszko is a 35-year-old professional poker player from Trinec, Czech Republic. Last month he finished in 2nd place in the World Series of Poker Main Event. That feat allowed him to claim $5.4 million and the respect of the poker community, and he caught the attention of the world's largest poker site.
This week PokerStars announced that Martin Staszko is the newest member of Team PokerStars Pro. The timing of this announcement couldn't have been better for him, as his first tournament playing as a part of the team will be the EPT Prague.
Staszko told PokerStars: "I'm really happy to sign with PokerStars and to join such a talented team of poker players. I'm playing in my home country at EPT Prague as a Team PokerStars Pro and looking forward to playing many big live and online tournaments in 2012 like the PCA and WCOOP. My main focus is to win a mixed game event at the next WSOP, becoming the first Czech player to win a bracelet."
