PokerStars Signs New Team Pros

Tags: Chen-An Lin, PokerStars, Yaxi Zhu.
Posted on Thursday, September 03, 2015 by "T".

YAXI ZHU and CHEN-AN LINIt was a while ago since PokerStars added players to its Team Pro roster. On Wednesday, however, it was announced via PokerStars Blog that the world's largest poker site had picked two new Team Pros in Asia, Chen-An and Yaxi Zhu.

"Chen-An Lin from Taiwan and Yaxi Zhu from China are both popular and successful poker players in Asia, and today, they put on their red spade patches to make it official," said PokerStars Blog's Brad Willis.

Yaxi Zhu is a former finance and business manager who entered the poker world from a career at a consulting company, bringing her analytical skills to the game. She won two tournaments last year (one in Macau and one at EPT Prague) and has so far earned $230k playing live tournaments.

Chen-An Lin started playing poker in 2009 and won his first tournament the same year, a side event at the Macau Poker Cup for HK$15,000. His largest cash to date - HK$380,700 (approx. USD $50,000 - was scored in 2014 after taking down a HK$20,000 NL Hold'em event at the Macau Poker Cup

Both newly signed Team Pros are currently taking part in the Macau Poker Cup, which runs until September 13 with 16 Official Asia Player of the Year tournaments, including the HK$5,000,000 guaranteed Red Dragon event (Sep 5-11), which has a HK$12,000 buy-in.

Well some popular Asians finally hope they do well and they make their country proud would be good to see how they perform, pokerstars are getting more and more people from all around the world and the emerging markets like Brazil and the Asian countries for poker players and they seem to be doing a good job as they keep making a lot of money, so good luck guys have fun and make some good money cheers peace out!

well it's kinda clear what the intent was with these newly cooked team pro's... stars would love to expand their business in asia and what better way to do this than with the help of local forces... next they should sigh kim jong un in order to capture 99.99% of north korea's poker market.

No surprise they went with some Asian players and it looks like they will have to go for more South/Central American pros as well,poker in those regions is booming right now,especially Brazil.

I am not even sure Asia wants anything to do with Amaya. They seems to be fine without them.
