so pokerstars changed one comedian with other...guess they want to appeal to recreational players more- since they are the ones who start to disappear from the radar and this is not what any poker room wants...at least this is a fresh approach, we will see if it bares any fruits...good to see jokerstars at least trying

I keep thinking Blom will give his face to FTP. But we can see that Pokerstars is investing on known faces from other sectors than poker to come and promote the site. First it was with Rafael Nadal, spanish tennis pro (calling for europeans who like and probably play tennis, which means they are from high class in financial terms), and now with this american comedian (from USA, remembering everyone they can restart playing there). So, the question now is: Who will be the Asian figure that will sign with Stars in the next month? Is Jackie Chan as known in the Asian world as he is in USA and in Europe (due to the popularity of his movies)?

sign some famous faces - increase popularity, standard marketing approach, I personally want to see more deals like this.

Also why does everyone keep hating on stars, jokerstars and all that, I think they are by far the best site to play on, they do business right and they reward their players, i mean what more can you ask for. I've played on it for years, not professionally or anything, and had my share of badbeats, suckouts, and all that nasty stuff, still I don't go complaining saying how rigged it is, if its statistically possible it will happen sooner or later, so I really doubt any of you out there been selected to run worse than others, so if you think you are really unlucky, go see a gypsy or something to lift the curse, just don't blame an awesome poker site like stars.
