David Williams joins Team PokerStars

Posted by Steve Ruddock on Jul 04, 2010 Posted in Poker Player News | No Comments »

When David Williams was let go by Bodog Poker –as the company continued to move away from male sponsorship, as Justin Bonomo recently found out as well—it wasn’t a matter of if, but when Williams would land at another site. Well, it only took about 6 weeks for Williams to come to a sponsorship agreement with the world’s largest online poker room, PokerStars.

Williams recently appeared on PokerStars.net Big Game, and the still young poker pro has always been one of the more popular poker players amongst the fans –despite his Magic the Gathering obsession.

Even though Williams is best known for his runner-up finish in the 2004 Main Event he has put together an impressive resume of poker wins with close to $8 million in career tournament winnings –$3.5 million of that coming from his WSOP Main Event runner-up finish.

* In April 2010 Williams was able to take down the $25k WPT Championship tournament, adding $1.5 million to his career winnings.
* Williams won the Poker After Dark episode Jam Up Week in 2008, which was good for $140k.
* In 2007 Williams won the $5k buy-in Bellagio Cup tournament, where 1st place was good for $129k.
* In 2006 Williams won his 1st WSOP bracelet in the $1,500 7-Card-Stud tournament, and also finished second in the $5,000 2-7 Lowball tournament.
* Williams also made two final tables in WPT events during 2006, finishing 4th both times: Williams won $221k at the Mirage Poker Showdown, and $280k at the Bay 101 Championship.
