Roy "GodLikeRoy" Bhasin Joins PokerStars

Last year, PokerStars announced it was looking to sign a pro from either Australia or New Zealand and that player has now been confirmed as Roy “GodLikeRoy” Bhasin.
Australia’s Roy Bhasin will therefore take his place amongst the other members of Team PokerStars Online, having beaten off a shortlist of other candidates which included Jonathan Karamalikis, Jesse McKenzie, Jay Kinkade, Tim English, Benn Skender, and Matt Wakeman.
Commenting on the exciting news of his signing, Roy Bhasin said:
“I feel incredibly humbled and honored to have been chosen to be a part of Team PokerStars Online. It has been a dream of mine for a while now, and to actually see it come true is an incredible feeling.”
Roy Bhasin said he was brought up enjoying competitive games with his family, but became interested in poker after catching some action on TV. That was five years ago and now Roy Bhasin still plays predominantly online, where he can be found crushing the Pot Limit Omaha cash tables. The PLO specialist’s successes also include a 2010 SCOOP runner-up finish at the $2,100 PLO event for $40,800, and talking about his favourite poker variant, said:
“I truly believe that the game is more fun, complex, interesting and challenging and that all poker players should learn to play it.”
As well as time spent at the virtual felts, Roy Bhasin runs a blog at, which he describes as ‘The world from an Indian-Australian poker player’s view.’ Bhasin said that when he started his blog he was aiming to garner notice and now believes that its success helped him get chosen by PokerStars.
Congratulations on Roy Bhasin on his latest sponsorship deal with PokerStars, and we look forward to seeing the Australian pro playing online, as well as a few more live events in the future.
