Earlier this week PokerStars signed the 24 year old Norwegian poker pro Johnny Lodden. This means that Johnny Lodden will travel all over the world and play in the most prestige full tournaments in the name of PokerStars, and hopefully make some cashes.
Since Johnny Lodden's break through back in 2004 he has been playing on the highest limits online and in the biggest live tournaments. Since 2004 he has won over half a million dollars in tournaments, and most probably even more in cash games. As Lodden signs with PokerStars he writes history and puts Norway on the map as he's the first poker pro from Norway to get signed by PokerStars.
This pro contract with PokerStars couldn't occur at a better time than now for Johnny Lodden since the Norwegian poker championship will be played this weekend in Nottingham. After that Lodden will travel to EPT in San Remo, and then off to Monte Carlo for the EPT Season 5 finale.
