Isaac Haxton Becomes Team PokerStars Online Pro

Isaac Haxton Becomes Team PokerStars Online ProPokerStars has just announced that Isaac Haxton has become Team PokerStars Online’s newest recruit, and now takes his place amongst a slew of other notable members, including Randy “nanonoko” Lew, Mickey “mement_mori” Peterson and Shane “shaniac” Schleger.
Commenting on his latest sponsorship deal, the New York pro said: “Honestly, I’ve been “pursuing” a sponsorship for years. I’ve entertained a lot of offers from a lot of different sites but there’s always been one reason or another that I’ve chosen not to take them. This team online deal finally brings me terms I like with a site I’m proud to endorse.”
Isaac Haxton first started playing poker aged 18, although he had already demonstrated an ability to play other games, such as chess and Magic The Gathering, to a very high standard. Likewise, Haxton’s poker career got off to a great start after he cashed in at his first live tournament in 2007, the $7,800 PokerStars Caribbean Poker Main Event, where he placed 2nd for a $861,789 payday. He has since amassed an impressive $4,084,066 from live tournaments, including finishing 2nd at the 2009 WSOP $40k 40th Anniversary event for $1,168,565.
In addition to his poker tournament career, Haxton also plays online cash games, first as “luvtheWNBA” on Full Tilt, where he was down -$623,188 and then at PokerStars under the screen name “philivey2694” where he is currently in profit $210,551 since January 2011. He also featured in  PokerStars SuperStar Showdown, where he battled Viktor “Isildur1” Blom on three occasions, winning twice.
Commenting on his ambitions for the future at PokerStars, Haxton said: “I want to make Supernova Elite in 2012 playing mostly heads-up sit-and-gos. I also want to learn Pot Limit Omaha and play some heads-up No Limit Hold’em cash matches.”
