The first ever visit of the UKIPT to the home of PokerStars on the Isle of Man is proving to be popular and attracting some high-profile players, PokerStars announced today.

Many of PokerStars’ most high profile representatives will be attending, including Daniel Negreanu, Barry Greenstein, Vanessa Rousso, Jason Mercier and Isaac Haxton.

“I’m excited to visit the Isle of Man and play in a friendly event at the UKIPT,” said David Williams.

“We are looking forward to welcoming high-profile, poker professionals to the Isle of Man.  For many of them, this is their first time visiting the Isle of Man, and they will be joining hundreds of players on a journey to PokerStars’ home town,” said Kirsty Thompson, President of the UKIPT.  “They too will be able to go ‘behind-the-scenes’ and learn more about PokerStars’ operations.”
