Big sports star set to sign with PokerStars?

Big sports star set to sign with PokerStars?

Thursday, 3 December 2009

It’s not just the identity of Isildur1 that has caused a frenzy of speculation on the poker message boards. A post on Johnny Lodden’s blog hinted at a massive new name joining the pro ranks at PokerStars.

After describing a night out with some fellow PokerStars Sports Stars pros the Norwegian wrote, "I’ve also heard some rumours that Team SportStars is about to sign a new HUGE star, a guy I’ll probably follow around everywhere he goes. But I can’t tell you any more about it before its public, but the guy is a major star."

Those on the list of possibles include basketball stars Lebron James and Shaquille O’Neal, former World Heavyweight Champion Mike Tyson, Indian cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar and baseball star Derek Jeter.

One name absent from the speculation is Thierry Henry, which is perhaps surprising given his recent hand playing skills.
