After an amazing 2010 performance when he raked in more than $1,100,000 in live poker tournament earnings, Theo Jorgensen has been invited to join the professional poker player team at PokerStars. Jorgensen’s first event as a professional PokerStars member will be the upcoming November 4th Nordic Championship of Online Poker. Jorgensen was excited about the opportunity, stating that he considered PokerStars as one of the top poker sites online and they “always hosted the best poker events in the world.” The Danish poker player has an impressive resume in both live and online poker. As of 2010, Jorgensen has competed in 2 different EPT final tables.

Theo Jorgensen first started his poker career in the 1990s when he was quickly recognized and sponsored by the Bet24 company. One of Jorgensen’s first power games was 7 Card Stud – he took 1st in the European 7 Card Stud championship during 2004 – with a hefty purse of just over 100,000 Euros. By 2006, Jorgensen was competing in his first of two EPT final tables. Jorgensen added a WSOPE bracelet to his wrist by winning the PL Omaha tournament – soundly thumping Sorel Mizzi.

In all, Jorgensen has cashed at the WSOP six times and participated in four final tables. His highest finish in the WSOP came just this year when he cashed in 30th place. As far as the World Poker Tour is concerned, Jorgensen has won a title at the only final table he participated in but has cashed a total of three times. Finally, his EPT record stands with two final tables and four cashes.

Jorgensen joins a talented team of poker professionals that includes the man who arguably brought online poker to mainstream America, Chris Moneymaker. Earlier this year, the lovely and talented Liv Boeree was also invited to join team PokerStars. Other notable members of the team include Barry Greenstein, Ivan Demidov, Humberto Brenes, Chad Brown, David Williams, Vanessa Rousso and Daniel Negreanu.

PokerStars has long been one of the largest poker sites on the Internet and hosts the most lucrative weekly tournament – the Sunday Millions. PokerStars made headlines around the world when it broke the Guinness World Record for the largest poker tournament online and the record for the most online poker players participating in play at once.
