PokerStars has once again increased and strengthened its team with new players. This time they have signed David Williams and Vanessa Selbst. Williams and Selbst will now get to travel around the globe and play in lots of expensive tournaments for free together the rest of Team PokerStars - Daniel Negreanu, William Thorson etc
David Anthony Williams (born June 9, 1980 in Arlington, Texas) was self taught to play NLH tournaments and he had his breakthrough in the Main Event at 2004 WSOP when he finished second. Williams never looked back after this and continued scoring high in many major poker tournaments.
Poker is not the only card game that he has been successful at. Williams has won over $30,000 from playing Magic. Anyhow, when he was playing at the Magic's Pro Tour in the late 90's, he was caught cheating and was therefore suspended for a year. During this time he won lots of money playing high stakes poker online and then had a very successful comeback in several Magic events a year later.
Vanessa Selbst (born July 9, 1984) is an American professional poker player who has cashed 7 times at the WSOP and also won a bracelet. She was the first female to win a bracelet at the 2008 WSOP when she took down the $1,5k PLO event, earning $227,933. Apart from her results at the WSOP, Vanessa has been very successful in other major tournaments like World Poker Tour and North American Poker Tour.
