Former PokerStars Team Pro Isaac Haxton has entered a partnership agreement with Party Poker. Last year he has predicted his new home poker room that it will overcome PokerStars in two years.
Former PokerStars Pro Isaac Haxton joins Party Poker
While most of PokerStars news have concerned leaving professional, their closest (although still far distant) competitors are reporting yet another expansion to their ambassador team. Its star members Fedor Holz, Sam Trickett, Patrick Leonard, or Jason Koon are welcoming a player who left PokerStars pretty loudly two years ago - Isaac Haxton.
Ike Haxton left the PokerStars Team to protest against the significant changes in the loyalty program, which then hit hard all Supernova and Supernova Elite players. He did not spare his former employer in the months to come. He has criticized the newly introduced Beat The Clock format, and last August he predicted that Party Poker will be the biggest online poker room in the world in the next two years.
Ike crushes live tournaments and online high stakes cash game
Isaac Haxton comes from New York, and his father, Professor of English, brought him to "mental sports." He had been playing chess at the age of four, and at ten he started playing Magic the Gathering and at age 18 he became a poker player. During his studies of computer science at Brown University, he began to take poker much more seriously, and after several successful years, he had started off his career as a poker professional.
At his live premiere, he reached the second place at the PCA 2017 and cashed $861,789. Haxton has since scored more than three dozen 6-figure cashouts, the last one on last year's PCA. In total, Ike has won $15,879,226 in live tournaments, and he has also won millions of dollars in the high stakes online cash games under the nicknames "philivey2694" (PokerStars) and "luvtheWNBA" (Full Tilt).
With Party Poker's logo on the chest, Ike Haxton should appear at poker tables at the December MILLIONS Grand Final in Barcelona.
