Joe Cada, 22, wrote poker history last year when he became the youngest player ever to win the WSOP Main Event. For the win he received nothing less than $8.5 million, however, he only got to keep half of his winnings because he was staked by some friends. 

According to many interviews with Joe Cada after the win, he has been very careful with the remaining part of the winnings and it also seems like he has tried to live an ordinary life, even though he's rich and famous. Sometimes, however, it doesn't seem enough to keep a very low profile, at least if we should believe what Joe Cada wrote on his Facebook a while ago.

Jeffrey Lisandro became the first person to win a World Series title in all three seven-card stud disciplines at the same Series when he won the Stud High, Stud High-Low, and Razz in 2009 World Series of Poker. Of course he has achieved so much more than this in his long poker career. However, after his great 2009 WSOP he started getting lots and lots of attention from media all over the world. But even though he has gotten all this attention, not a single poker site has showed interested in sponsoring him. How is this possible many people probably would ask themselves? Well, even Lisandro hasn't got a clue why his still without a sponsor.

-"There has been a lot of good things written about me in different poker magazines, and I have done a lot of interviews on internet. Still no one has ever offered me a deal. I must be a very valuable player for a lot of poker sites as I get a lot of attention in media? If I don't find a sponsor soon I probably start my own poker site and sponsor myself until someone wants to sponsor me"; Jeffrey Lisandro says.
