The ranks of Team PokerStars have swollen by one with the announcement of the online poker room’s signing of Swedish pro William Thorson. Thorson has already won almost $2 million in tournament winnings, as well as several creditable finishes in the EPT and WSOP.
Thorsen will begin working with PokerStars out at the Series, and will be playing the Main Event as well as future European events.
Michael Holmberg, the PokerStars' Regional Manager for the Nordic and Baltic regions believes Thorson will be a great signing for the site. 'We're thrilled to sign the number one player on the Swedish poker scene, William has had great success, and now as a member of Team PokerStars Pro we believe he'll raise his game further in the year to come”, he commented in a statement.
Thorson is delighted with the move as well. 'To be a member of Team PokerStars Pro is an honour for me,' said the young Swede. 'It's a great team with many of the world's greatest players and I'm honoured to be included in such company – as a player I'm very proud to have my skills recognised in this way. It's a great opportunity for me and I hope to be able to achieve big results.'
Players will be able to follow Thorson’s play online at PokerStars where he will be found under his new alias: 'William'.
