PokerStars has unveiled Isaac Haxton as the latest member of its Team Online. Haxton first rose to prominence with a second place in the 2007 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Main Event, winning $861,789 and added another $1,168.565 to his bankroll runner-up in the WSOP $40,000 NL Hold’em event in 2009. All told has over $4m in live earnings to his name.

He's really made his name as a fearless online player though, beating Viktor 'Isildur1' Blom two times out of three in SuperStar Showdown matches.

Haxton, who plays online as PhilIvey2694, was delighted at his maiden sponsorship deal. “I’m excited for the new opportunities this partnership brings. I’m not just playing for myself now – I’m representing a team and a brand. That brings new opportunities and new responsibilities.”

And his goals for the remainder of the year? “I want to make Supernova Elite in 2012 playing mostly heads-up Sit & Go’s. I also want to learn Pot Limit Omaha and play some heads-up No Limit Hold’em cash matches.”
