When asked what the deal means to him, Isildur1 said: “I chose to joinPokerStars because it's the biggest site and it will be an excitingchallenge.

Edit: The unveiling at the PCA was uneventual, anticlimatic if you will, no Phil Helmuth dramatics here. But hopefully the action on PokerStars will be fast and furious! I look forward to seeing what poker players will be brave enough to venture over to PokerStars for the showdowns.
