pokerstars logoOut of the 2,000 members that applied, PokerStars have finally announced the 23 candidates to become members of Team PokerStars Online.

On the 23rd December, PokerStars announced 23 hand-picked members representing over eighteen countries to headline the world’s largest online poker room.  The figure represents less than 1% of the total that applied; with a range of candidates representing a full spectrum of poker games and varieties.  The current lineup for the PokerStars Online Team includes twenty men and just three women.

Poker fans will be very familiar with some of the big names announced in the list.  Norwegian Anders “Donald” Berg, who represented his country in the World Cup of Poker and EPT, has been selected.  Germany’s online phenomenon Thomas Boekhoff, who goes by the alias Boku87, has also been selected.  The online poker spieler managed to turn $100 into $10,000 recently in order to win a prop bet.  He’s allegedly has similar plans to make $100,000 from next to nothing.

Steve Jacobs, included in the list, is perhaps best known for winning the $25,000 buy-in heads-up event at the 2008 PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker.  Grayson “spacegravy” Physioc is another member of Team PokeStars Online.  Grayson recently finished runner-up in the PokerStars $10,000 Guaranteed to earn a cool $11,000.

One of the few women to break into the PokerStars Team list, American Nichoel Peppe – who hails from Long Beach – has shown her skill and knowledge of MTT Strategy after coming 75th in the 2009 World Series of Poker Main Event.
