Jude Ainsworth is the latest big name to join the professional ranks with Team PokerStars. The Irishman, known online as J.Thaddeus, will make his debut on home soil at the opening leg of the new PokerStars UK and Ireland Poker Tour in Galway next month.

Commenting on the deal Ainsworth said, “Ainsworth said, “I’m really looking forward to competing in the UKIPT and being part of such an exciting tour. Undoubtedly the event I’m most looking forward to is the return to my hometown Galway on the 11th December.”

Ainsworth has had a string of fine results both live and online. He won the 2008 Irish Poker Championship for a score of €145,000 and followed it up by winning the main event of this year’s Spring Championship Of Online Poker for a whopping payday of $963,338. He joins Vicky Coren and John Duthie in the UK and Ireland PokerStars line up.
